Last night I dreamt I was there. Mingling with everyone doing various show of strength walks around the world. It wasn’t clear in my dream whether I was walking or in my wheelchair but that didn’t really seem to be the point. What really mattered was the sense of belonging that I felt.
It is very difficult for me to remotely express my gratitude to all those involved in these events. This made me feel so helpless on Saturday that I’ve shaved my head. (Pic coming!)
I feel it is important that I let you know that this support from family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers, is what keeps me going sometimes. I’m proud to be associated with all of you and look forward to mingling together for real. I am particularly proud to be a Zimbabwean and can’t wait to be home.
Here at Muelmed my progress continues. I can sit for longer periods of time without passing out and have taken a demo wheelchair for a spin using no more than a chin control. The staff think I’m a bit of a cowboy and will not turn up the speed to maximum. I have only had one accident and cannot understand the attitude!
I have to go to the gym so I will sign off now. I look forward to seeing all the rest of the photos from the various events.
Thanks again. Lots of love. Tom.
