Feeling Lucky

Tahir found the couch, guided himself into a sitting position. He could feel the strong mid-afternoon sunlight through the windows. He remembered how bright the sunlight was, but now only some of it seeped through to his eyes. At best, everything was as dim as a romantic dinner in a fancy restaurant late at night.

There was nothing romantic about losing one’s eyesight, Tahir knew. His music kept him sane. He felt lucky he could continue his profession in his condition, even as the darkness steadily increased. It would be hard, yes, but doable.

Reaching for his bow, Tahir smiled.
