A Canadian Fall Sunrise
[ November 1st 2017 11:20 pm ]
I've needed some quiet time. Earlier this week I filmed this sunrise. I had originally been planning to record a separate commentary to go with this video. But I want to be real and transparent in my journey. I expect there are some of you who also need some quiet time. Perhaps your physical challenges prevent you from attending in person. This video is unedited, as I saw it. I hope it is as helpful to you as the down time gave me in thinking about my life, direction and enjoy God's creation.
A Challenge To Be Yourself
[ October 14th 2017 1:07 am ]
I've made this video to challenge you in defining yourself, your skills and abilities. I am wanting to remind you that you are more than a medical diagnosis. I encourage you to not become lost in ongoing medical appointments or the challenges of daily living and loose the unique defining moments of your life.
A Challenge To Think Before You Act
[ March 8th 2017 8:14 am ]
I've made this video as a gentle reminder to think before you act. The reason for this is so you won't regret the decisions you've made, especially ones made while you are emotionally charged. I see this as a life skill. I've explained the technique I use.
A Conversation With A Blind Man
[ December 28th 2016 10:14 pm ]
I've had a very inspiring conversation with a man who is blind. I was also in awe of this man interacting with his young daughter in the pool. I've also spoke on the topic of treating people with disabilities as individuals and not their specific ailment, other than making practical provision for it during your interactions.

Adding An Odometer To A Power Wheelchair
[ June 27th 2017 1:25 pm ]
In this video I share the process of adding a digital bike odometer to your power wheelchair. I'm use this to track my usage so I am able to predict when maintenance will be needed. This way I am able to play for maintenance instead of responding to break downs. In this way my power wheelchair remains an asset and not a liability.

Adding Pull Knob To Wheelchair Stem Bearing Dust Cover
[ May 1st 2017 12:51 pm ]
In this video I show how I've added a kitchen pot lid knob to my wheelchair stem bearing dust caps. Without this the stem bearing dust cap plastic becomes carved as it is repeatedly removed for replacing bearings. This forms a channel for water, salt, sand and grit to get into the bearing and cause the bearing to prematurely fail. In extreme cases this will cause the bearing to seize in place.
Adding Underarm Pad To Broken Crutch Underarm Support
[ May 22nd 2016 8:08 pm ]
My full size crutches have fell several times. One instance broke part of the plastic housing for the underarm support. In this video I show how I am using glue to adhere the underarm support to what remains of the plastic housing. This is really important to me. I don't live in a "disposable" mindset. I would rather repair my crutch than start with a new pair. While the glue was curing I spoke for a minute to inspire those who will watch this video to become all they are able and not to let your mind hold you back from having dreams. I want to see you make the best of your circumstances.
