I just experienced something quite remarkable.
For quite a while now my eyesight has been fading. Distant objects lacked definition. I found myself peering rather than looking. Even colours were muted and somewhat grey.
I put this down to the ageing process: the inevitable slide down the slope to a point where nothing functions any more.
Suddenly, in the last few minutes everything is crystal clear. Colours are vivid. I can see distant objects with remarkable clarity.
I’m not sure whether this is down to a bit of a miracle, or maybe it has something to do with solar flares?
Or maybe I should just remember to clean my spectacle lenses more often?
