Observations From Below: Doug was a Cool Guy

  Yesterday, I lost a good friend and mentor who taught me a great deal about writing.  Seeing the outpouring of support, he continues to receive has caused me to reflect on how fortunate I am to be integrated into my community.  Most people with disabilities, like mine, experience some form of social isolation at […]

A couple of weeks ago, a short video clip went viral. It shows a man in Georgia helping to get a woman using a wheelchair home after it ran out of power.

That was probably closer than half right.  I was experiencing a lack of ideas, which I guess is the definition of writer’s block. But I think I had an idea that was too intimidating to write down. If you follow my Facebook, […]

Observations From Below: I’m no Blowhard

I’ve always found it interesting how my life works out sometimes. Almost like the universe is going to send me a message. In an interesting coincidence, I have been sick every time I needed to advocate health care reform. The first time I went to Washington in March, I came down with a cold. The […]

Observations from below: I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

People mistake comfort for my passion about the subject of Disability Rights. In truth, I still don’t speak up enough in large meetings with other passionate people.

One awkward thing about using my living room as an office is that I get exposed to a lot of Lifetime and TLC network reruns. I noticed an interesting trend on both of those channels that there are a lot of shows about people with physical differences. For instance, there are a large number of […]

Observations From Below: If We Can Roll Together, Why Can’t We Rock Together?

To stay motivated lately, I have been reading a lot of biographies and autobiographies of civil rights leaders (especially in the realm of disability rights). Over the weekend, I finished a book called “Fading Scars: My Queer Disability History,” written by Corbett Joan O’Toole. I enjoyed the book a great deal, but I also found […]

Observations From Below: Covfefe

I’ll be open to you all and to say that Health Care advocacy has taken a lot out of me. It’s drained my fortitude and changed my perspective in certain ways. I used to think that Medicaid would be safe from any reductions that might be proposed. The one thing that President Trump said about […]
