Simply Cryogenic

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Estee on 15-01-2009

If you read my post on How’s the Weather a couple of weeks ago about small talk, well, I have to admit, I’m obsessed with weather. I get really excited at oncoming storms, weather warnings and today, I can report that Canada is in a deep freeze. Our warnings today across most of Canada are wind-chill warnings up to minus fifty! Brrrr.

Toronto in a Deep Freeze

Toronto in a Deep Freeze

Here’s a picture of Toronto from Adam’s grandfather. It shows how life can be positively cryogenic. I’m certainly frozen as I huddle in the home my husband and I built; from where Adam and I will soon move away. It reminds me of disability history and cryogenics — how we are really frozen in time (I’m writing a paper on that, and will post it).

Yet, time and life keeps moving at the same time when things don’t change much at all…what an irony.

Please don’t forget about my single mother of disabled children study and thanks to those of you who have responded. I guess it’s cold here in Canada, but things are still moving along.

“Moving on, is a simple thing, what it leaves behind is hard.” –Dave Mustaine

Here’s a video and song that warmed my heart on a freezing cold day:

About Me


ESTÉE KLAR

I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
