…and it will be my last.
One of those difficult-to-answer philosophical questions is something along the lines of “would you prefer to go blind or deaf?”
If I just had to choose (neither option sounds great fun to me) I would much prefer to go blind. I can cope without the internet (no, really) and you can get a lot of supporting technology to help with reading etc, but I could not cope without being able to listen to music.
A life without Mahler, Iron Maiden and the Black Dyke Mills Band? No thanks
