The Dongola Times

(Anachronistic) Dispatches from the Kingdom of Makuria.
08th of June, 2012


The hardest part of having to wear glasses for the first time is that, while I appreciate how much clearer they make my sight (especially at night, for objects at a distance, and for the cases where both this conditions are in play), I do not like looking at the World through little boxes. I got rimless Silhouette frames, very good design, with anti-glare and photochromism. But I still notice my narrowed field. I also hate that I am not accustomed to smudges; I am neither practiced at ignoring them, nor careful enough (as of now) to avoid putting them there in the first place.
