Dr. J. Alphonso Dandy, who joined the United States Air Force until his service was cut short by the diagnosis of an eye disease and currently serves as the chief executive officer of the Dandy Youth Development foundation, has completed his new book, "Blind Bloops": a charming memoir that explores the author's experiences with a rare eye disease and the ways in which he, through faith and trust in God's directions, finds the bright side to each of these tales.
"I was born with an incurable eye disease known as retinitis pigmentosa (RP)," writes Dr. Dandy. "RP is a congenital hereditary eye disease that destroys the retina. It is characterized by degeneration of the retina. The retina is the back of the eye that is a part of the brain. It is a layer at the back of the eyeball containing cells that are sensitive to light and that trigger nerve impulses that pass via the optic nerve to the brain, where a visual image is formed.
"In the course of living with retinitis pigmentosa, I often said 'Oops' when I ran into something or missed seeing something. For that reason, I decided to couple that word—oops—with the word blind (bl), and I called my experiences 'blind bloops.'
"Following are some of the many personal episodes—amusing and memorable—that I experienced while living with this disease."
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Dr. J. Alphonso Dandy's new book is an inspiring collection that shows no matter what one's limitations might be, with a positive attitude and trust in God's will, anything can be achieved.
Readers can purchase "Blind Bloops" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
