About . . .


THE BLOGGER — Chuck Heidel here. Father of eight, grandfather of 5, married to lovely heroic Alice over 35 years and, yes, those are my socks. I’m a former midlife recreational cyclist, who was hit by a motorist while out riding in August 2009. Further validating several Phamous Physicists’ notions, the score that day was: Cars: 1. Bikes: 0, and I became a C7 tetraplegic, paralyzed from the mid-chest down.

THE BLOG — WheeledWords is an assortment (see Recent Posts, Archives and Categories to left). My hack amateur writings and better material from other worthies. Themes include change, anger, challenge, bodily functions, relationships, love, loss, adaptation, success, failure, keeping calm and carrying on. Some are short bursts. Others are lengthier. Some are serious, some not so much, and some are written with a wink. Each is intended variously to encourage, amuse, rile, remind, and ultimately to infuse pluck and vigor.

Thank you for taking my Vision request for an at a glance, that I can use when I went where His Spirit led me, to help our homeless shelter grow. Your work helped congregation want to be part of touching and changing the lives of the men and women we help. It also helped all 10 of us on the Board grow together as a team, and in Christ. Thank you for helping me. Thank you for not saying “I Can’t.”

  3. Thank you, Phil– It’s my pleasure to be able help this way, as — from afar — you all are boots on the ground dealing with the real challenges and interfacing with these folks’ difficult realities.
