    A Legend

    His Voice

    I love his voice.  He has an amazing voice.  I also look up to people with disabilities that don't let their disability hold them back.  He is a great artist with some very beautiful songs.

    Mr. Charles, Have You Been Blind All Your Life?

    "Not yet."  True story.  I love that one.  It's not possible to praise Ray Charles too highly.  Like Nina Simone, he too recorded some awful material, "I can see clearly now," and other pop rubbish, not to mention the time he spent doing...

    I get really cold feet and hands. The feet can at times look grayish. Usually just very red and so cold they hurt. I think I have Raynauds due to possible ehlers danlos or my POTS
