I am passive in the presence of that which accosts me.

‘The sighted person can choose whom he wants to speak to.’ People ‘have a presence prior to his greeting them, and he can choose whether to turn that presence into a relationship by addressing his acquaintance’. ‘When you are blind, a hand suddenly grabs you. A voice suddenly addresses you.’ ‘There is no anticipation or preparation. There is no hiding around the corner.’

p.95 Touching The Rock, John Hull
