Disability

Georgia-Bound

Tomorrow I’m going to be getting on an airplane with Katherine and we are taking our annual MomCation to Atlanta, Georgia. Yep. Because we are total nerds, our idea of a good time is going to present on Deaf Identity at the Society for Disability Studies – hang out and attend lots of cool lectures on things disability-related. Seriously, I don’t think we could be more psyched!!!

Since this post is set for auto-publish, I think you’ll be reading this when I’ll actually be on the plane, right? I hope.

In the meantime!

Lots going on at home on the Lost Coast. Last week, cherries were upon us in force and we actually got to pick and eat a bunch. Figs are almost ready for their first harvest. Mushrooms were getting big and cool and maybe a little disturbing since we have no idea what kind they are… (do you?). Kids roamed unplugged, wild, free. Chickens laid a LOT of eggs. Chickens also crossed a field, a road, a moat and a hill to come and visit us in the yurt (and I had that surreal moment of shooing them out of the house – like, WHOAH, did I really work in the corporate world in Tokyo and now I’m shooing chickens out of my yurt on a hill off the grid?!!!)

Life is good.

  1. Your pictures are lovely and whimsical, as always. Enjoy your conference and good luck with the presentation!

  2. This post reminds me so much of a conversation I had with a woman in Laos who was teaching me weaving. She said she loved her life, but she didn’t like having to keep shooing the chickens out of the house and she thought she’d like an automatic washing machine. (I’m pretty sure that’s what she said. It was one of those phrasebook/dictionary conversations based on lots of gestures and guesswork.) Have a great time with the presentation and lectures!
