Round Trip in a Letter

Dearest Me, I know that you feel like your life is over. All your hopes and dreams seem to have flown away with the birds that you watch so often. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am for you. It’s not fair to have your childhood robbed from you. I’m also sorry … Continue reading

From the Mouths of Babes

Mommy, Why don’t you do anything with me anymore? When I was little you helped me learn my numbers and letters and we’d play with my toys. Now all you do is lay in bed or on the sofa watching your videos. You always tell me that you don’t feel good or that your tummy … Continue reading

The F Word

No, the one you’re thinking of is not the F word I’m referring to here. Although, they are somewhat synonymous in my world.

In the CNN article, which can be found here, Brian talks about “ableism”, living with a disability, and the inspiration behind his project. The title “Impaired Perceptions” is what first grabbed my attention when strolling the internet … Continue reading

5 Days and Counting

Like Ronnie Van Zant (from Lynyrd Skynyrd for those of you not from the south), I had a firm belief that I would not see the age of 30. Unlike Ronnie Van Zant, I am 5 days away. I don’t see any plane trips in my immediate future so I know that I won’t be … Continue reading
