A little bonus post during this holiday season, as part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The idea is to share photos with the blogging community, and have some fun! This week’s particular challenge is Bicycles, Tricycles, Motorcycles, and Wagons. Since it’s me sharing this entry, there is, of course, a twist: a “wheelchair-cycle.”
I am not a photographer. Because of my motor neuron disease, I can’t even hold a camera—so you’re probably wondering why I’m taking part in this challenge? As a writer, I appreciate that one photograph is worth a thousand words, and since my father takes a lot of pictures, I thought I would share some of me in my “wheels.” To keep true to the challenge, and because yet another year is coming to an end, I’m sharing photos of my nephews riding my wheelchair through the years. They’ve now grown too big to climb on the back for rides without tipping me over!
Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
(Please do not copy or use these photos. Thank you!)
Safe and happy travels in 2019, no matter what your mode of transport!

Although crippled by disease, I am fully alive in love. I write about the profound wonder and terrible beauty of life while living with physical disability and severe dependency. Unafraid to ask life's big questions, I was briefly an atheist and considered other religions before finding, in God's choice to intimately share our humanity, what it truly means to be fully human. A revert to the Catholic Faith, I blog weekly and have written a book called It's Good to Be Here.
