One of the things that I like about your writing is that you punctuate your experiences with access rather than saturating your story with them. It is my belief that our disabilities are an inherent part of who we are, but we should not let them define us. That's up to us to do, and I think you're doing a fantastic job of defining yourself as a man of character.

Couldn't agree with you more.

If I could do it, I would discard all of my "disability" issues in my writing, but because they have done so much to make me who I am, I'm forced to talk about them.

I don't get along with blind or disabled people who let blindness define everything that they do.

I even chose chemical engineering because computer science would be something that lots of blind people would want to do. I don't hate my blindness, it's just part of me, which maes it difficult to remove completely from my writings, but ... ah here's a good way to put it ... I look at my disabbility much like I look at my religion. My religion is my life, and I live it every day. My disabilities are my life, I live them every day. But I don't wear either on my sleeve like so many seem to like to do.

Thank you so much for you kind words. Keep up those awesome entries will ya?
