Secondary thoughts. Secondary colors created by mixing.
Secondary subject. Yes, this too.
The optometrist told me that my retinopathy would go away. He said it is common in alpha types under stress, a theory of sorts which we discussed for a bit. I then scheduled a return visit so he could once again blast a beam of light into my eyeball and take more photos.
I've paid attention to the distorted vision in my left eye. Minor but present in everything before me. In some ways I've tried to relax my way of seeing. Don't look around too hard. Look, but then close your eyes and keep them closed.
There are owls in my pecan trees. I know this because I hear them and then occasionally I find them. I confirm sightings with my neighbor Roger who walks his dogs everyday and studies the birds more than anyone I've ever known well. When we encounter one another we don't have to talk about ourselves at all. Just the birds that we've seen or heard, comparing notes.
