International Wheelchair Day 2013

Today, 1st March, is International Wheelchair Day.


I was hoping to celebrate by going out and about in my chair - being visible, confident, competent and happy. Letting people see for themselves that wheels aren't the end of the world, and that life is still fulfilling and joyous. With the extra glee of free-wheeling down the pedestrianised shopping mall.


That was the plan.


Instead I have a chest infection. It's not severe, but enough to sap my energy and necessitate staying at home. So I instead I shall admire my fabulous new wheels, my wheels of freedom, and appreciate them every time I leave the sofa, and be quietly thankful for expert engineering that has made my independence possible.
