What the Holy Heck's Comments

I met a woman a few years back who'd been born blind and gained sight for the first time in her early 40s. She told me that some things were perfectly and immediately recognizable to her, like human faces, and that other things - mostly colors and random objects - were more confusing. She said it took her a couple of years to get "vase" into her head when she looked at one.

She was most confused by colors because to her they seemed so arbitrary. I wish I'd had a week to talk to her. I never found out what her dreams were like before she could see!
