This is about the connections and comforts related to your experience with disability – is it the people you meet and know? Is it the wonderful silence that you get when you take out your hearing aids or cochlear implants? Is it how good it feels to fly fast in your wheelchair with the wind in your face? Is it how full your heart feels when you’ve been in the waiting room, waiting for your child’s open heart surgery and there is another mother of a child with a disability there, and she looks up at you and smiles and you know she knows how you feel, and her eyes fill with tears and you start to bawl?

These moments.

Let’s write about these moments!


The writing prompt is optional:
