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.
