On Saturday I mentioned I am in Santee, SC. That's still true today although I'm supposed to be going on to Cherokee, NC, if not today, tomorrow. Hurricane Hermine and tire troubles put us a day behind schedule but we'll be there tomorrow at latest. Then we'll head back home.
Hope your Labor Day weekend was blessed!
Today's guest is a newcomer to our blog, brought to us by Class Act Books.
Jeremy Higley was born in California but now lives in Arizona. As of 2016, he’s a graduate student working on a master’s degree in English. He’s also an instructional aide at a local elementary school, a novelist, and a contributing editor for a nonprofit student success company called LifeBound.
Now let's see what Jeremy treasures....
If you are what you eat, I'm an apple. I've eaten an apple a day for as long as I can remember. I just love apples!
Jokes aside, my best conversation starter is to tell people about my colorblindness. It's funny to me how this simple fact always brings out the same questions in people.
Yes, I was born colorblind. I found out in kindergarten, when I couldn't properly fill out a color-by-number sheet. No, it's but real blindness but actually an extreme form of red-green colorblindness known as protanopia, or protoanomaly, that leaves me seeing only grays, yellows, and blues.
Nope, nothing else.
I've memorized the appropriate colors to most things, but I do get tripped up sometimes. I haven't tried the Enchroma glasses. These enhance color perception by separating light into its primary components of the spectrum before they reach the eye. However the test on their website says they only have a 25% chance of working for me, so I'm waiting until I have $400 just lying around.
Oh wow, Jeremy, most of us never think of our eyesight and the fact we can see colors as something to treasure! Here's praying for a miracle for you!
You can find out more about Jeremy through his website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+

Hope you enjoyed today's Treasures and that you'll drop by each week for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.
Until next time, take care and God Bless!
