Selfish Integrity

I wasn't sure if he was talking about me or not. If anything, I figured that he was being sarcastic because I play somewhat deceptively.

"You know what I'm talking about, right?" He asked me.

"No, not really."

Traveling while disabled

On Alan's Journey

One of the things I'm intending doing this year is writing more about my travels, and my experiences as a disabled person, off-road driver and traveller.

I'm not sure how many of those there are out there who fit into all those categories, but I'm sure they're out there, and I'm one of them.

I'm not disabled to the point that I can't walk, so I'm lucky and grateful for that. But I'm disabled in that I can't lift anything heavy, and I can't do a lot of bending, and I can't stand or walk for longer than a few minutes without it causing me pain.

I know, I know - "You can stand?! And WALK?! LUXURY!"

All those with a disability are unique, and I'm fully aware that my own disability is a lot less significant than many other people's disabilities. However, I'm not here to compare my disability with anyone else's, but everyone with a disability knows that they are disabled, in whatever manner that might be, and their life is impacted by that to the point that they're simply unable to share many of the same experiences in life as those who aren't disabled.
