An Eye on Vision Issues
Volume 4, Issue 1 – April 1st to 7th.
April begins the planting season where I live. I have enjoyed the scents of new blooming flowers and freshly plowed fields while completing my daily walk. I urge everyone to work into your daily schedule some time outside and enjoy the offerings of nature. It’s not only good for your health but fun.
