Overview

"I am blind, and I'm an alcoholic," says Michael W. Moran in his introduction. There was no cure for the congenital glaucoma that caused his blindness, but thanks to a 12–step program and lots of help from others, he put down the drinks and drugs in 1982.

 

Now, 42 years later, he's put together this heartfelt narrative of the main events of his life. The often shocking negatives include the abuse that he and his classmates endured at a Catholic school for the blind, when and how he was introduced to alcohol, and his many failed relationships—for which he blames no one but himself.

 

The positives include his lifelong love of music, the degrees and certifications he earned, the wide variety of jobs he's held, his reconciliation with various people from his past, his love for and help from guide dogs, and his current Christian faith. The self–reflective, giving, and forward–looking man that Michael is today is eloquently described by his musician friend Dion DiMucci and the Reverend Elizabeth Enright. Their testimonials introduce and conclude the book.

 

Michael doesn't want to be seen as "that amazing blind man." He didn't write his memoir to impress anyone. "My wish for you," he says simply and sincerely, "is that you find the following chapters entertaining, educational, and perhaps uplifting."
