it was amazing
Read in January, 2006

I got this book from the library after reading Lusseyran's book mentioned by Inger Naess in "Colour Energy." It is simple to think about color when you can see, but Jacques Lusseyran lost his sight at 8 years old. He became attuned to his other senses. He developed inner sight, and could connect to the world with his body. His fingers were "alive." He was the principal writer of the French resistance newspaper "Defense de la France" during WWII, until his capture, when he was sent to Buchenwald. He survived the camp by sharing his inner light with other prisoners.

His story, in his own words, is as light and engaging as his spirit.
