I have had many hobbies over the years such as, ventriloquism, guitar/harmonica, photography, and more. There’s one hobby that has always taken center stage of them all; writing.
Writing will always and always has been a part of my life. I remember the first time I began writing. It was at the age of 10. Lying on a stretcher in front of the nurses station during a 4 month stay, I saw a drawing of a nurse that a friend of mine had drawn. He was there nearly the same time. It was what he wrote underneath the picture: “Have you hugged your nurse today?” That was when something sparked and all of a sudden I wrote a poem with this question as the title. (I would share it if I could remember the words.)
I wrote and wrote as a kid. It was a great way for me to express my feelings so young. After I gave my life to Christ, my writing was prolific. All of a sudden I was writing something daily, sometimes more!
I guess it’s no wonder I have a blog. It’s a great avenue to share my experiences with a disability. Second to my faith, writing has been a great source of solitude in the midst of chaos that sometimes a disability can bring. Nevertheless, I keep on rolling.
