Disability’s a thread that runs through our lives, much like culture does on other blogs. It’s an element but not the point. The point to our lives is to live them to fullest, not to talk about each and every “disabled” moment. So saying this, the very nature of my life, Moxie’s life and my previous line of work do lend themselves well to resource-collection, which in all good conscious, I should share. I am no expert; it should go without saying that these are just my opinions on books and links related to disability.Without further ado, let’s plunge in, by disability:
