Eating Lying Down

I never understood this, but one of the most common fears people who aren't familiar with the way I function have about me is that I will choke because I usually eat lying down on my side. I've been doing this for nearly 29 years at this point, and so far so good. I'd say that's a pretty good track record. I can think of one time where I legitimately choked[...]

DO Something!

One of my biggest pet peeves is people who are physically and mentally able that choose not to take the initiative and do something with their lives. Even though I have this "disability" that makes me physically unable to do a lot of normal activities, my parents raised me with the idea that I would DO something with my life one day. I wouldn't be feeling so[...]

Dealing with Pain

People are always surprised when I tell them that I'd had over 500 broken bones by the time I was ten, but that I can count the number of times I've taken a narcotic on one hand. They often assume that breaking bones must not be painful to me, which I will never understand. Trust me, it hurts...plenty. There's nothing wrong with my nervous system.  When I[...]

How often do you go to the hospital?

"Do you go to the hospital every time you break a bone?"  This is a question I get ALL THE TIME. The short answer is "no," in fact, I rarely go to the hospital for a broken bone. I am extremely lucky to have grown up with parents in the medical field, even if most of their patients have four legs and fur. We actually joke that I'm basically like treating[...]

KAK ART Art and Jewelry Parties

I began doing art and jewelry parties for my grandparents and their friends in New Iberia, Louisiana about 7 years ago. My grandparents hosted the event in their own home once a year. Since then, that particular audience has grown exponentially, and the show is now held at a gallery each November. However, I also have art and jewelry shows in other locations[...]

Partnering with the Humane Society of Louisiana

I've recently embarked on a partnership with the Humane Society of Louisiana where donors are awarded a piece of my art based on how much they donate. The Humane Society focuses on fighting animal cruelty, neglect and mistreatment throughout the entire state. As you would expect, my family has known the head of the Humane Society of Louisiana, Jeff Dorson, s[...]

ADA Accessibility with the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

As most of you know, I am a total concert fanatic. Other than art (which in most cases is at least 50% work), I don't have a whole lot of hobbies. Concerts give me a chance to get out of my house (where I live AND work) and to allow me to take a break from the real world. It's not only a change of scenery, but also a total and complete brain rest. Her[...]

Partying with Florida Georgia Line

My friend Christy (with whom all of my avid blog readers should know well by now) and I have been following the band Florida Georgia Line for some time. Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, along with their band, put on an absolutely amazing show. How they have not won Entertainer of the Year yet, I honestly have no idea. Although they sometimes get a bad wrap fo[...]
