Good morning again everyone and welcome back to campbellsworld.
This morning while doing my housework I began to think about the funny and sometimes seemingly nonsensical questions people who haven’t ever been exposed to a blind or otherwise disabled person ask me about how I “manage to live alone.”
As I worked doing things like taking out the trash and recyclables, unloading and reloading the Dishwasher as well as various other tasks I thought, “I suppose people can’t know what they don’t know, but how can I help folks learn about me and how I “manage to live alone?”
“Well, you dummy, why don’t you do what you do best? Why not write specific blog posts about the subject. Better yet, why not ask the public what they’d like to know and start another column?”
As I wrestled the recycling can loose from the gate I’d managed to get it hung up on I thought, “Hmmm, that’s not a bad idea.”
So, readers I’ve always believed the only stupid question is the one unasked. I Also don’t offend easily so how about it? Do you have questions? Are there things you’d like to know? If so, ask.
You may either post your questions here into the comment section or you may write to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once I’ve a question or two I or one of my totally talented Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing clients will write a post which will tell a tale and give the answer.
Come on, don’t be afraid. Ask.
We all of us do the same things, but we each do them a bit differently.
“I’ve heard things over the years like, “Oh! You’re so amazing.” Or, “I just don’t see how you manage.”
And, while sometimes I become annoyed at that, I also understand it. You can no more imagine what it is to be me than I can imagine what it is to be you.
I’ve always had a desire to blend the lines that separate and what better way to do that than to begin a conversation about the different ways in which we live.
Disabled readers, this goes for you as well. Even if we share similarities in our disabilities, no two are quite the same, so if you’ve questions about how something is done, or if you need help learning to do something, ask. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll find someone who does.
OK. I’m waiting…
Until next time this is Patty who is hopeful this will start some great dialog among friends, and Bubba who is enjoying the cool spring breeze flowing through the window saying…
We are one yet we are we. May harmony find you, and Blessid be.
