Mood Rings

A series of nine poems about my moods as I lose my central vision from cone dystrophy, using my ring scotoma (my blind spot) and the Amsler grid as form. To read more about the process of creating these mood rings visit Mood Rings Explained. To learn more about my sources, visit Mood Ring project, Resources and Vision Resources.

excerpt:

How to Find 

a blind spot in your central vision when you have cone dystrophy: Stand. Stare. Wait.

Stand a foot away from a blank wall in a well lit room. Close your left eye and look straight ahead with your right or close your right eye and look straight ahead with your left. Stare into the center until a dark ring begins to appear.

mood: DELIGHTED
mood: CURIOUS
mood: AWED
