Amazing TV, once in a while

I turned to Kentucky Educational Television and ran across a documentary about 
John Howard Griffin.
He wrote "Black Like Me" a book I read years ago that moved me deeply.
I enjoyed the doc.
Griffin was an amazing man.
He lost his eyesight as a result of the war.
Was a pianist.
Regained his sight and became an activist.
I had forgotten he was a friend of my other hero Thomas Merton and spent some
time at Gethsemani not far from where I live.
Great story.

 Finally learned how to shoot a macro shot. whoopee

 Found a site on-line that explained where to find the
macro lens on a digital camera.

I was in teachers college when I became aware of and read that book. Heard a tape of him speaking as well.

Well Peggy, I will look for the book cause everything else you've referred me to has been a good read. Have a happy day, Mollye

You are doing better than me. I have not learned how to do the Macro things yet. Not even sure my camera will do that. Enjoyed my visit to your blog. Also, appreciate you stopping by my place.
