I remember when I was a kid, seeing "Out of Sight, Out of Mind", a M*A*S*H episode where Hawkeye gets blinded. The whole episode he wasn't sure he'd ever get his sight back. The episode was about his developing his other senses. I thought that was so cool. That summer, I spent two weeks with my eyes covered, and learned to see with my hands. I learned to walk by a closed door and tell where it was because the air just felt different. This was an interesting experience at the time, but much of it faded. I can't close my eyes and tell where doors are anymore.

However, I have retained the ability to see with my hands, and that has been such an amazingly awesome skill, I am forever thankful.
