'Write what you know' people say. For this story I knew something about...
- Wearing contact lenses and glasses
- Shifts in perspective both psychological and physical
- The cost of things when you're skint
- Feeling powerless
- Getting ready to go on demonstrations to protest & marching on the streets
I don't know everything about these subjects and that's where this story began - with something I didn't know about something I did.
I wrote it in May 2020 when I was ill, when much of the time all I could do was empathize with and support from afar the protests in the US.
