Overview

An inspirational memoir of a man's rich life experiences without sight, but with an enormous sense of wonder in the world around him.

Born prematurely in 1947, Tom Sullivan was given too much oxygen while in an incubator. Though it saved his life, it cost him his eyesight. The “inconvenience” of being blind has never kept Tom Sullivan from competing in a world where he realized that to be equal, for him, meant that he must be better.

As an actor, singer, entertainer, author, and producer, Tom describes life without sight. He’s gleaned a number of gifts from his “affliction,” including cultivating a sense of his own purpose, treasuring people without expectation or predisposition, and celebrating his own uniqueness. For Tom a life with blindness has still been a life with very few true limits.

Through insightful stories, Tom shows how he’s made blindness a positive. In this elegant, emotive exploration of the senses, he considers the different challenges he’s faced and explains the wonder he carries because—not in spite—of his blindness.
