Powerful, On-Topic Music Video

I saw this on AmputeeOT’s Facebook page. Really beautiful and powerful.

P.S.: I'm a bit slow on the uptake with some kinds of music, so it took me a little bit to figure out that this is a home-made lip-sync video of a song by Pink. I'm even more impressed.

P.P.S.: The young woman in the video is Krystal, and she has some other good videos on her YouTube site about her below knee prosthetic.

Website Changes

I’ve made some changes to the blog over the last few weeks. Here’s a list, with an invitation to look around and give me some feedback on what you like, what you don’t like, and what you like seeing on other disability blogs.

- I added my picture and rewrote the blog description, both of which you’ll find a the top of the right-hand column.

- I cleaned up and updated my list of Disability Blogs, found lower down in the right-hand column.

- Tabs at the top of the blog, just under the title banner, for my other pages, including an About Me page, and the beginnings of a list of Resources on disability-related issues. Also, you will find collections of all the disability-related Video and Photos I’ve posted, with links to original sources where applicable.

- Please take a few moments to vote in two polls, near the bottom of the right-hand column. One asking how you are connected to disability issues, the other asking what kinds of social media and other Internet services you use regularly. It helps me to have an idea of what my readers are looking for, and whether I should do more with other platforms, like Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, etc.

More changes are probably on the way, because tweaking the settings and adding widgets has become something of a nervous habit. It’s also a nice way to “do something” with the blog when I can’t think of something to write!
