Another concernment benefit finder is the Radcliff student, or was a Radcliff student, Helen Keller.
Helen Keller, quite literally, open our eyes and get us appreciate what is all around us.
She tells us a story in her wonderful autobiography about a friend who came to visit her once in Cambridge.
There were many more woods at the time. And the friend
walked around the woods and when her friend came back, Helen Keller asked her,
"so what did you see? What did you note?", to which her friend responded, "well, nothing in particular."
And Helen Keller responds to that "nothing in particular" in her autobiography. Let me read.
I wondered how it was possible to walk for an hour through the woods and see nothing of note.
I who cannot see find hundreds of things:
the delicate symmetry of a leaf, the smooth skin of a silver birch, the rough, shaggy bark of a pine.
I who am blind can give one hint to those who see: use your eyes as if tomorrow you will have been stricken blind.
Hear the music of voices, the songs of a bird, the mighty strains of an orchestra as if you would be stricken deaf tomorrow.
Touch each object as if tomorrow your tactile sense would fail.
Smell the perfume of flowers, taste with relish each morsel, as if tomorrow you could never taste or smell again.
Make the most of every sense.
Glory in all the facets and pleasures and beauty which the world reveals to you."
