    The Times They Are A-Changin’

    I always thought this year would be a bit of a year of change for me. I had talked to friends and my need to do less, in order to do more but I’m not sure I really wrote about that here. But in order to do that a few things were going to need to change. And I’m less interested in some of the things I was doing and more interested in trying some new things – photography is taking more of a role in my life this year than it has before. When I was at uni (back in the days before digital cameras) I would often take…

This is the longest in a year that I’ve got as far 16 days in I think. It’s actually not as easy to do as you might think.

    When the bad is good

    Sometimes being disabled is really weird. Because I got told something today that I’m sure for a lot of other people would be a bad thing but for me, it’s a good thing. And also because sometimes you can’t explain what your reality is like and how it differs to the norm to the person whose asking because your reality is all you’ve ever known. And you’ve no idea what normal is. All my life I’ve been told my circulation in my legs isn’t great. That I don’t have full sensation in my feet and legs either. Which is a strange thing to experience because people ask about it and…
