Old-school photo, 2004.
I took this after my spinal injury. At the time, i was told i may never walk without a cane again, and could expect to end up in a wheelchair.
I haven’t used the cane for some time; even when it hurts like a bitch to walk without it, i just can’t seem to reconcile myself to using it anymore. Call it pride, or maybe just stupidity. But i figure the day will come when i won’t be able to leave it in the closet anymore – i’m just hoping that day doesn’t come till i’m at least 70. :)
