Being disabled.

Dis-: a Latin prefix meaning “apart”, “asunder”, or “away”.

Ability: as a verb, to have the means to do something; as a noun, a talent or skill.

Disability: our bodies have wandered away from their expected capacity of performance. The bodies we live in are unruly, and our inability (sometimes read as a lack of skill or effort, such as not trying hard enough to eat the right things or exercise the right way or see the right doctors to obtain the right medication) to control our bodies sets us apart.

How does living with disability inform a person’s perception of the world and and the world’s judgment of them? How does the embodiment of disability change our connection to time, relationships, work, morality, and so many other things?

This blog is dedicated to how disabled bodies, in all their unruliness, disrupt the world.
