Here it comes. . . and it’s alright

The performance of my arrangement of Here Comes the Sun continues my torrid output of creating and sharing one video per year. But this is by design. It allows just enough time for people to completely forget that I can play guitar, sing and (sometimes) write songs. Or maybe even play a kazoo. They are then astounded to discover that I possess any semblance of musical ability whatsoever.

A lot of average pets can be easily scared by many of those things, which can also mean aggression and violent behavior. That is not safe at all for the public, and especially not safe for service animals.

Life: “Little old paralyzed you, can make a huge difference through one small act”

I still held great regard for labels and I was then the disabled girl — limited, incapable, weighed down by the “I can’t’s”. Still holding everything I had been close to my heart.
