Al Pacca, writing in his blog Gossamer Penguin, notes he read my essay in the Washington Post, and then he says (in part, of course), "In a nutshell, the article says that life with a disability is good."
Which left me with nothing to do but post a comment on his blog ...
Thanks for the comment, although I must say I hope I didn't come across in the essay saying "disability is good." It isn't -- well, it's neither good nor bad; it is simply life. And life can get messy sometimes.
We only are given the opportunity to live the life fate hands us, and we can influence it only by attitude and karmic action.
There: that's the essay.
