A few days ago, while walking down the street in downtown Baguio, I saw something I'd never seen before: two blind people, a husband and wife, or brother and sister, or friend and friend, holding onto each other, tightly, the one in front guiding the way, the one in back following, and I realized that the old expression is not true, not right, not altogether valid, because these people, shimmering in the sun, who some would call handicapped, did not look misguided or out-of-touch or without-a-clue, but instead seemed sure of where they were going, and certain of how they would get there.
