In What Order Do You Value Your Five Senses?

 Some questions seem trivial, take this one: "In what order do you value your five senses?"

Easy to answer?

How do you value your five senses, an eye

Well what if you really only have four senses?

As a blind man, that is the situation in which I find myself. So imagine my surprise when about a week ago I saw this question pop up in my Quora Space, Ask a Blind Guy.

At first I wanted to write something sarcastic, a blurb on the stupidity of the question.

Then I began to think the question through.  How much do I really value my five senses, I do still have five, sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing.  Though the sight one is a little limited to say the least.

So what did I say?

what order do I value my five senses?

This may seem a strange thing, but as someone who is now almost completely blind, just a little light perception that gives me light and shadow in a small area to my right.

My sight, what I have left of it comes in as most prized.

When I was fully sighted, twenty years ago, I guess you might say I took sight for granted, now having lost most of my vision I treasure all the things my limited vision now gives me.
