Quilt Work in Progress
Sweet Teen sat down and made a list of as many behaviors as she can think of that have changed since I was kicked in the head. Among many other things, she says I have a hard time staying focused and that I do things much more slowly. Yes, I've noticed those, but I guess those behaviors are much more intense than I realized. For years I've had to advocate for greater patience, more strategies, more time to complete tasks, and sometimes just waiting until the next day with general ed teachers who just don't understand the realities of traumatic brain injuries and how they can limit the productivity of students with TBI. Now despite all that, I have to admit that my understanding was very limited too. First hand experience is something we don't want, but I have to admit that it's certainly a growth experience. (And my injury is much less severe than those many of my students have had!)
Okay, now to get at least a little bit done before heading to the city.....
Although first I'm going to link to some other blogs so you can easily go see other people who are making more progress than I...
Esther's WIPs on Wednesdays
Connie at Quilting by the River
Lee's WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Do visit some of the very interesting blogs in their Linky Parties and leave comments for the quiltmakers. I've found some absolutely wonderful, little known blogs that way.
