My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Well stated.


Your penultimate paragraph is quite marvelous.


Thank you, ladies. My syntax in that penultimate paragraph is a little tortured, so I'm glad the point can be heard.

I think Jane Siberry said it better:

"i see you looking around at the people on the street
well, things aren't what they seem.
if you push them hard enough
you'll find that most of them do not feel worthy of love
now how did this come to be?"

-- "The Gospel According to Darkness," from When I was a boy (Reprise Records, 1993)


Thank you, Sara, for sending us this post for inclusion in the Disability Carnival # 5. We'll see you there on December 14th at!

Nice to meet you online!


Um, okay, but FYI, Connie, I haven't sent you anything. I'm glad you're enjoying my writing, though.

So inclusion of the driving post I understood, but what does this one have to do with disabled travel? Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
