Write a book

Hello everybody!
Maybe my questions will be a little wired for you.. but I don't know with whom to talk about this.
I am Masha from Romania and I want to write a book about me with a blind man alone in the world. I wrote some years ago a short story about a blind musician but that one was not complex so I manage to write it somehow accurate.
I could read on the internet some informations about this but I don;t want to read some technical ones, I need also emotions...
I need informations from a birth blind person.
1. Do you dream during the sleep, and how?
2. What are your notions about physical beauty?
3. What do you feel when somebody is telling you about colors, birds in the sky, clouds, etc? What emotions do you feel then?
4. How do you imagine things if you can not see them. A mountain, a house etc.
5. Do you have less fears like we do because you can not visualize the threats? Or your fears are are otherwise?
For now this are the only questions that I have, at this time I am making only the sketch of the book.
If this post is inappropriate here I am sorry, if not, thank you for your help.

Re:Write a book



and I have some answers.

1. Do you dream during the sleep, and how?

yes, blind people dream too. We dream like normal I know I focus more on the noises that surrounds me in the dream.
2. What are your notions about physical beauty?

like anyone elses
3. What do you feel when somebody is telling you about colors, birds in the sky, clouds, etc? What emotions do you feel then?

none, I simply imagine it.
4. How do you imagine things if you can not see them. A mountain, a house etc.
I know what they look like by figurines and living in them and having them describe to me. so, I see them like you do.

5. Do you have less fears like we do because you can not visualize the threats? Or your fears are are otherwise?


No, fears are the same. basically just because we are blind our psychology does not change.
