one thing they added to season 2 of into the badlands that i love is a title card for the episode title because the naming convention i think is one of those neat little gems about the series. i love that they’ve made it more prominent to casual viewers now.
able-bodied people don’t seem to realise the nuances of disability, they look at it as such a black and white issue when it’s really not. like, i don’t need a wheelchair in the sense that i can’t physically use my legs and i don’t need a walking stick in the sense that i would fall over without one. but i do need a wheelchair in the sense that it could make the difference between my being bed-bound for a day and being bed-bound for a week and i do need a walking stick in the sense that using one today might enable me to do more tomorrow. disability and chronic illness aren’t black and white; using things out of necessity can mean a lot of different things for a lot of different people.
Utah is so rad being less than a half of a day’s drive from several awesome national parks… Spent the weekend in Teton and paddled 3mi across Jackson Lake to our own private little notch in the mountainside… did not suck at all haha
