    Default Deep Sea Diving in a Wheel Chair

    A TED Talk by Sue Austin.

    How people view of us changes if we are in a chair and how that changes what we think about ourselves. And, what she did about it.

    http://www.ted.com/talks/sue_austin_...heelchair.html

    Worth talking about.

    Thank you both. I fixed the link. I am amazed at what she has done but also am interested in how people's view of us can change our own view.

    How many of you all are looking for a way to do this?
    If I were a bit younger, I would sure be doing this.

    Next, a wheel chair flight!!!!
    Love, Sally

    Thank you so much for sharing this incredible woman's art, courage, and determination. My husband and I were inspired, and we watched more of her videos, as he handed me tissues. Her freedom ~ how beautiful that she made her chair into a vehicle for her self expression, to break the bounds and limitations, and experience what imagination can accomplish.

    Just amazing ... thank you.

    Love & Light,

    The link worked perfectly for me. A friend of mine told me about this awhile ago. Very cool!
