I could see for many years. But now that I'm blind, I see better than ever. Tips for better living. For people, of course. Dogs get it.
Advice for humans:
Take time to smell "the roses" (your words, not mine)... you know what I really mean.
1. Get right in there with your snout, and breath it in - deeply.
Life is Good - with smell. Oh yeeaaaahhhh.
Scent is the strongest of senses, triggering more emotions and memories than vision, hearing and touch. It sounds weird, but ask any dog - any day. Blind dogs in particular - we are scent hounds.
For navigation, I zeroed in on my seeing eye dog brother Elvis. In particular, his stinky basset butt. Who needs eyes when you've got that super charged GPS unit guiding your way?
Your human author friends know the importance of smell, too - they heard about it in writer's classes.
