Ethan got a notice from the school that he needed to get his eyes checked. I figured, I passed the school exams all the time, and I needed them badly, that would mean he might need them worse than me.
We got “lucky” in that he was pretty much exactly what the school found, which is 20/80, which is not blind, but not great at seeing. He’s doing great with wearing his glasses though!
In a profound sense every man has two halves to his being; he is not one person so much as two persons trying to act in unison. I believe that in the heart of each human being there is something which I can only describe as a “child of darkness” who is equal and complementary to the more obvious “child of light.”
