“Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties” C.S. Lewis

Thanks for sharing, Max

Max Mteliso’s words

A lot of people ask me how I manage to travel or globetrot independently in a wheelchair? First off, my faith in God and I would like to share a quote often quoted by the LDS church, from preach-the-gospel.com

“Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties” C.S. Lewis

My burning desire to live independently is the compelling force and rudiment to my travels. Basically everything people achieve boils down to deep desire. When people wonder how I manage, to some extent I feel like a super hero and I shared my secret in my previous post ‘The Power of an Early Morning Shower’.

Planning the Journey

It has been said that failing to plan is planning to fail an oxymoron of logistics. The supposedly easiest and straightforward transportation to go there was by flying. Ideally I wanted a direct flight from the U.K. to an…

I want to inspire people. I want people to look at me and say, “Because of you, I didn’t give up”.

Martin Sostre on Feb. 12, 1976 — the same week he was released from prison after he was granted executive clemency by the governor of New York.

Author’s note

His name has been lost to history, but in the 1970s, prisoners, wardens and prison guards across the U.S. knew of Martin Sostre. He was a fearless prison activist at the dawn of the age of mass incarceration, an inmate willing to risk months in solitary confinement to fight for prisoners’ rights. He was one of the first prisoners to successfully challenge his conditions in court and won his biggest victory when he crossed paths with a pioneering judge.

I met Sostre shortly after he was released from prison in 1976. He’d been granted executive clemency by the governor…

BABY feety a champion of hope

Watching children grow
is like threatening the ivy
to climb the garden wall.
You wait for it to happen
you hurry it along with love.
But still you’re disappointed
at giving someone life enough
to walk off on your own
and not be carried in your arms.
You never turn your back – not once,
and yet one day they’ve grown apart
or taller.
It’s all the same.

Polly put the kettle on, we’ll all have tea.
Giving love to children
has made us older overnight.”

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

Tests revealed something was wrong. Scary words filled a report with my name on it: Memory, low average. Executive functioning, low average. Verbal fluency, reduced ability. Impairment. Below expectation. Below average.

They were all ways of saying I was brain damaged.

At work, I got taken off the air. The thing I was great at was gone.

“Kim’s work is characterised by misuse of vocabulary, unclear grammar, difficulties with logic and structure, lack of sentence cohesion,” is something mentioned in a later report.

I spent my late 20s and early 30s learning how to talk and write again. It spanned years.

I had tests using what looked like children’s picture books, and failed.

One of the puzzles Kim Baker Wilson was given while re-learning to speak and write.

I had to learn to say 10 vegetables, or 10 things starting with…
