Do you think there is magic in the act of writing?

Question by C.S.Scotkin: Do you think there is magic in the act of writing?
Magic
By C.S. Scotkin

Her faded blue eyes are focused.
not on TV but where?.
Terse one word answers
are driving me to despair.
I seem unable to reach her,
She seems not to care.

Her universe is shrunken down
to a stark, white washed square.
Hospital bed and dresser.
The TV, reclining chair.
Small table beside her for food
waiting for God, she stares.

I rise, I turn the TV off.
Perform my examination.
Really, shes doing very well
Despite self vegetation.
I ask if we can talk a while
I tell her, its regulation.

I ask, what was your favorite day?
Shes startled by such a query
She bows her head, as if in prayer,
starts to open up to me.
She stretches out her bony hands
In case, she thinks, I try to flee.

A short hour passes, I must go.
This change in her is quite a sight.
Shes not so apathetic now,
Those clouded eyes are turning bright.
Before I walk out of the door,
I ask her, do you ever write?

With widened eyes she looks at me.
You need to tell these stories, true.
Youve millions of years to be dead
Dont let your memries die with you.
I have no paper, I have no pen,
Of how to write, I have no clue.

Next day I bring a notebook, pen,
A flower for her bare table,
So, pretend Im listening here,
I know you are more than able.
Your children will love to read you,
More than any tale or fable.

The last time that I spoke to her,
voice was strong, her spirit lighter,
I started writing poems, you know.
This woman is such a fighter!
Exorcising her depression,
This ninety year old new writer!

Ma, she’s still writing!

Might be, but the magic is in the heart of the caregiver who took the step to “awake” the writer. Well said and compliments to you for both.

Question by Bernard T: On electric power chairs are there any with an overall width of 23 inches or less ?
Due too bathroom doors of 24 inches in width I need a Power Chair less than 23 inches in total width, the chair is for indoor use only. I am looking for examples of chairs that can be used.

The problem here is that chairs, whether power or manual, should be chosen to fit the user, not the door. If the user is extremely slim, then you should have no difficulty in finding a power chair to fit.

If the user is permanently in a chair, it should be chosen in conjunction with either a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist, not just because it feels comfortable or fits through a particular door.

Question by princess x: In the UK are there any mobility scooters that can be transported in a car standing without disassembling?
i am trying to help my disabled mother find a mobility scooter that can be driven in the back of a car without the need to take off the battery or fold it. That perhaps could be driven in with a ramp at the rear of the car. She has limited mobility and is not able to use a wheelchair or electric wheelchair. Your help would be so much appreciated if not life changing as it means my mother would finally gain her independence. If you could point me in the direction as to finding a car model and the model of the scooter and would i need to have it road saftey checked? thank you in advance x

to get a mobility scooter loaded in my van. It is just to bulky and heavy to take apart and lift every time.
Thanks in advance for any serious answers.
Matt, you’re sweet, but it’s not my scooter, just my van. I drive my sister who has cerebral palsey and her scooter is heavy and I am just not willing to dismantle it every time.
