Inspiration on the tube

Last night I had the good fortune to meet two inspirational people on the tube home. One had hardly any sight after a bad accident years previously, his companion was completely blind from birth. They were on their way to a dance class in Central London, navigating their own way around the tube. You could see it was stressful for them but they managed their way around with very good humour and grace, which was doubly impressive given it was rush hour and the train was rammed. Despite the disability, they'd obviously both made a decision to get on with life in the best way they could, which was pretty humbling to be honest. Not only that, the gentleman who was completely blind was a concert grade viola player and pianist. When I said wow and asked how he managed to do that he just laughed and said "practice every day".
