I am a disabled woman trying to figure it all out and in the process hopefully shed some light on what it means to be disabled in our society.
The blog is MOVING!

Bit of a Break
I'm having surgery tomorrow and have decided to take the next two Wednesdays off from posting here. I'll be back by February 24 probably with new material since the medical profession is almost as inspiring as airport staff.
After acquiring a degree from Vassar College in psychology, I moved to Western Mass where I ran a peer mentoring network for disabled college students as well as activism and organizing around disability issues. I also conducted research on disabled women’s body image. An Upstate New York native, I eventually followed my heliotropic nature to the sun of Southern California. I divide my time between writing (disability fiction and essays) along with moderating San Diego Bisexual Forum which is one of the oldest groups of its kind in the country. In my off hours I can often be found in my neighborhood live music venue enjoying our local talent.
