These will soon begin appearing in the sky here. With both eyes functioning again thanks to modern advances in Ophthalmology not available a few generations ago, I'll be seeing them clearly again. After a year of totally cloudy vision in the right eye, my brain has steadily adjusted throughout winter to receiving clear-vision signals from light passing through the intraocular lens expertly implanted without a hitch by the surgeon.
It's raining again in southern California, sparking memory of being there in the summer of 1973 and the song released that same year about how it never rains there. Rains will begin falling here again soon too and the first rainbow of springtime will arch over the homestead, a sight I'm looking forward to witnessing in full color as clear as vision enjoyed during my youth.
Deep thanks to the doctors and nurses who made it possible.
