I heard about this at work and thought I would pass the information along to anyone who has a vision impairment or who has a friend or relative with one.

Mind’s Eye Travel creates tours for people who are visually impaired or blind. Our hosted trips let both visually challenged and fully sighted people tour comfortably and free of worry. Our itineraries are customized not only for great comfort, camaraderie and enjoyment but also for full sensory discovery, and they offer options for independence. Our destinations are carefully screened in advance and we hand-pick activities, restaurants and lodging while keeping in mind our needs as visually impaired and blind travelers.

Our trips for 2008 include:

  • Discovering mid-coast Maine.
  • Sedona, AZ and the Grand Canyon.
  • Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Mind's Eye Travel


Another lovely piece of prose found on the Web:


Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

--- Max Ehrmann, 1927
