ONLY CONNECT... Wanderings and wonderings from Anchorage to Zanzibar; issues in blindness, and fun with guide dogs; connecting with friends and family.
Michael Meteyer is currently a Field Representative an internationally acclaimed dog guide school. Part of his job involves traveling around the country and the world to interview applicants for admission to the various programs at the school. Previous to this, Michael had been in the blindness field for nearly two decades.
Previous to that Michael had been: a carpenter; a commercial salmon fisherman; a taxi cab driver; a production manager for a clothing firm in Chinatown, San Francisco (didn't last long there); a sheep rancher; a horse rancher; a seller of cut flowers; a tree surgeon; a bookstore manager; a student at a Zen center, a framer in an art gallery; a teacher of creative writing; and, in seventh grade (Saint Boniface School, the Men's Club in the basement) a bowling pin setter.
The last job required skills which, alas, are no longer in demand.
