We are launching the Foreseeable Future Facetime web series with our guest Nancy D. Miller From VISIONS/Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Nancy will be sitting down with our host Mark Farrell to discuss the exciting projects that VISIONS is working on during the ongoing pandemic and how organizations like the Foreseeable Future are supporting their work in helping the blind and visually impaired community.

Mark Farrell

Mark Farrell has heard that seemingly innocuous question “Are you blind?” many times… And while it can leave someone with a visual disability feeling inadequate or angry, Mark always responds politely, “No, I’m not blind, but I am visually impaired.” Mark developed a get-up-and go, optimistic outlook and seeks out activities which make him happiest. His optimism includes a passion for life and music, an appreciation for life’s little things: a hearty laugh, a good song, a delicious meal, a perfect sunny day, and a great bike race or triathlon. He works as a talk show host and on-camera personality, producing show topics as well as interviewing guests for his public affairs radio talk show and podcasts. www.markfarrellmotivation.com
