Hi All,
 
Just wanted to give everyone an update, check in with you all and say hello!

All is going pretty well.  I feel a bit like someone suddenly transferred me to a foreign land and I  am now forced to learn the lay of the land, the language, everything...just hoping all this work will keep my brain active and young...that is what the experts say is the key to staying young: really use your brain.  Who knew?  Well, I am using it, so hopefully it will pay me back with interest!

Most recently, I have come to be the owner of a guide dog.  The dog is very sweet.  He is a big, black lab named Luke.  The trainer, Erik Lorrie, from Freedom Guide Dogs, came out to my house in early April, then we headed into New York City for more training and Erik came on a couple of out of town gigs to teach me how to manage Luke on planes, at gigs and at airports.  It appears that Luke and Ozzy (our family dog) get along great.  Luke and the kids, Luke and Audrey...everyone is getting along famously.  He is such a sweet guy.  I will keep you all informed on this continuing journey.

Everything else is going as well as possible.  I still can't see, but I think I have come to grips with the fact that I will more than likely not see again for at least 8 to 10 years.  I haven't accepted that this is my fate.  I believe I will, at some point, be seeing again.  In the meantime, I am learning how to deal with it.

My kids, Chris and Matthew, and my wife, Audrey,  have all been very  supportive.  They are my ever-constant helpers.  They are all learning to accept that this blindness thing was not my idea & so we are all in the process of figuring out how to accept this new life.

I really hope to see you all soon.  Please come out and support the music.  The good thing is the blindness has not effected my guitar playing in a negative way.  So please come to shows and say HI!

I hope to see you when I am out on the road.

All the very best to you all and I really cannot tell you all how much I have appreciated the love and support I am receiving from everyone.  Please know, it really helps!

Love,
Jeff
