    but my eyes cannot read it.  I know this sounds small and picky and I apologize for that, but my 68 year old eyes need paragraphs, more than one, to read it with any understanding.

    In instructional circles, the loose rule is three short or longish sentences per paragraph. Otherwise the point is often lost to the reader, especially older readers like me.

    If you can, please put some paragraphs in so that I can read what you want to tell me.  Otherwise I would have to sit and decipher word for word, which often obscures the writer's intent.

    Thank you very much.

      I should have broken this up a bit, but I am not sure that three sentences per paragraph would work.  In any case I'm sorry that you had difficulty reading it.
