I am not a good disability activist. I don’t have enough staying power. Might have something to do with how I’m so tired all the time.
I went to the board of my choir last year and got permission to look for a new, more wheelchair-accessible rehearsal facility. Spent weeks on the phone during November and December, finally located an acceptable place. I thought I was keeping the board very well apprised of my progress with frequent emails.
Now, apparently, we are moving too fast. We haven’t properly thought out what impact a move would have on the membership. Some people might quit, because they have to drive further, or heaven forfend, cross the blessed Boulder city limits and mingle with the unwashed in the county. We should have some more meetings, sound out the choir on their opinion, wait until next year.
To hell with that.
