We are the architect of our own identity

"We may decide that a puma is worth more to us than a caterpillar, but surely we can agree that the habitat is all the better for being able to sustain each."

Stephen Fry - The Fry Chronicles

Coming Saturday 12th November will be the launch of the Dis-ability ...This Ability Exhibition at the Coastguard Cultural Centre in Tramore.

For me, the thoughts behind this exhibition is to take the focus away from the dis- in disability- which means taking something away - to THIS Ability.

I strongly belief that whatever your life's circumstances, you are still You.

You are still able to contribute to society. Albeit in a different capacity, but it does not mean that it has any less value than before disability changed your life.
If you have a disability/ impairment from birth, it also does not mean that you are any less that anybody else.
