Everyone knows the eye is the window to the soul, but it works both ways. People are comfortable when they feel as they are in control, or think they are educated about the situation, but when the script is flipped that is when fear sets in.
At one time, or another we have all been in that attic with the window at the end of the room. Out of our Peripheral vision we see something flash by the window most likely it is a bug, or another winged animal. It is the shear fact of the unknown that creates the fear of being watched.
I have the similar experience when I spend too long at one place in public by myself. People start wondering why I am sitting even if I am playing on my tablet. I can see people starting to get concerned, but they do not know how to communicate with me. Fear is based on the unknown and that can be from having an obstructed view of perception by not being willing to investigate.

The eye is all powerful, but it also has a dark side that people do not talk about. When a hunter is on the trail it’s of prey, you can tell how focus they are and will not give up the pursuit for anything.
There are many things people can pursue: nourishment, lovers or just a goal in life. I am familiar with all three of these, but I am best known for the third one since all my life I have been told I cannot do something. That is when I go into beast mode and get locked on the goal and do anything to prove I can achieve it. A beast lives in it all of us, but the challenges is harness it for productivity.

I do enjoy sitting outside when the weather is nice, but it does come with a risk since the noise level fluctuates. This is not good for someone with CP since we can be startled when we are focused or enjoying an adult beverage. Then you add the fact that outdoor tables are not the same quality as regular seating.

Now here is the quandary, what is more important to save first? The food, or drinks this is where the Artists instincts flair up. Some how the whole table can flip over and the cups end up in my friends’ hands. This skill proved quite handy during a trip through Europe and all of its outdoor caf├ęs.

Maybe the best simulation for Cerebral Palsy would be air turbulence when flying through a storm. At one time, or another most of us have flown and might had a bumpy ride, some think by holding there drink it will not spill. One should realize your whole body is still moving, there is nothing that can be done to keep nature from taking its course. I am sure this drives all control freaks crazy.
When you are a person with a disability, control is always just out of our reach. There is always someone that thinks they know better than you, even though each of us are unique. The best we can do, is be our own self advocates and do not let anyone drown out our voices. Mother nature is not the only one who can through a system into chaos.

What would seem to be an ordinary night out for me, Wifey, and friends might not be that way to others. This is especially true when we go to new places and need to do recon. My two concerns are the bathrooms and how tight the seating is.

I like to know how easy it is to get to the bathrooms and how clean they are before I start to order, so I can take into consideration the bladder factor of what I drink. The other thing to consider is how close the table are to each other and how far I need to sit under the table. The tighter the seating is, the more chance there is for our table could experience a CP earthquake. This could be caused by a sudden noise, or someone bumping into my chair.

Most people think if you have legs, you have the freedom to go anywhere. Now that I think about it, I refer to my wheelchair as my legs and I only talk about the parts on my lower limbs. There will always be limits to where my real and metaphorically legs can take me. That is why I considered my knees to be more important. I have crawled places that I should not have gone and without my knees I could not do my art. There have been times when my knees have been so hurt, that I had doctor notes to sit out my art classes.
