A blind man still can see

Back when I started here at The Telegraph, we had a talented design and graphics guy named Alan Gibson.

He left The Telegraph several years ago, but stayed active in the arts community. A few years ago, I heard he'd started losing his sight. I saw him downtown a month or so ago and he had dark glasses and a cane. His sight was completely gone.

And, yet, when the Cherry Blossom Festival asked local artists to decorate poodle cut-outs (the Cherry Blossom is Macon's signature festival, a pink poodle is its mascot) Alan Gibson volunteered.

I'm told he did his by feel.
