awkward, out of breath

what I mean by this is that being able to walk a little, being able to walk with consequences, that’s not the same as being able to walk (the end)

When people are denied wheelchairs because they can walk, an important thing is missed.

They can’t walk

yes, they can…

I have seen the affects of someone who ‘can walk’ dealing with a full day of exertion that would normally ‘tire’ a person.  It means a full week of recovery, barely stirring from bed.

I’d much rather push my mother around in a wheelchair and glare back at those who mutter beneath their hands ‘she looks okay’ or ‘where’s her cane?’ because I know by the end of the day she got a chance to enjoy herself, not stagger back to a park bench after each hour.

And I’ve seen the looks of pain on my friends’ faces while they try valiantly to hide the fact, when in truth they just want to lie in bed for a month and cry.

I don’t ever want to see them in that state.

The Chaos

An acclaimed fantasy author navigates the world between myth and chaos in this compelling exploration of identity, told with a Caribbean lilt.

Sixteen-year-old Scotch struggles to fit in: at home she’s the perfect daughter, at school she’s provocatively sassy, and thanks to her mixed heritage, she doesn’t feel she belongs with the Caribbeans, whites, or blacks. And even more troubling, lately her skin is becoming covered in a sticky black substance that can’t be removed. While trying to cope with this creepiness, she goes out with her brother— and he disappears. A mysterious bubble of light just swallows him up, and Scotch has no idea how to find him. Soon, the Chaos that has claimed her brother affects the city at large, until it seems like everyone is turning into crazy creatures. Scotch needs to get to the bottom of this supernatural situation ASAP before the Chaos consumes everything she’s ever known, and she knows that the black shadowy entity that’s begun trailing her every move is probably not going to help.

A blend of fantasy and Caribbean folklore, at its heart this tale is about identity and self-acceptance—because only by acknowledging her imperfections can Scotch hope to save her brother.
