Too Many Thoughts For Just One Blog

Mapping a Path Through the Nuances of Disability "Culture"

A close friend brought Lisa Ferris's Twinkle Little Star blog to my attention; in particular, this post, Lost in Disabilitakinstan.

It is literate, insightful and a dense commentary on multiple issues around the idea of the difference between the "non-disabled" world's cultural norms versus those of the disability community. It is so well thought out that I am thinking of taking bits and pieces (with atribution, of course) and then adding my two cents.

Be warned, Lisa doesn't break up her paragraphs often, and there is enough there for a long magazine piece; it is worth reading in its entirety.
