Alex the Irishman was definitely one of the people whose lifestyle taught me a big lesson about mine. Even though he was visually less able than most of us, he traveled around the globe to experience the wonders of the world. I dare say by what I learned of him through our conversations and his manner that his spirit took in so much more beauty than normal humans were capable of.

He taught me that no matter what your disadvantages are in life, you can still enjoy what the world has to offer you if you dare live consciously. Thanks to him, I got in touch with my five senses more than ever before.
