→ A strange new American dream.
• People who get off on braces and wheel chairs are called devotés. They’re a joke, they’re the bottom rung. Above them are the pretenders. They wear the braces, they push the wheels, but they don’t *belong* to their chairs. Still, if they want to fantasize, that’s their choice. Then there are the wannabes. You saw how crazy they are.
• I’m just thinking how easy it is to get used to a miracle.
• I used to think if aliens landed, and they saw all the able-bodied people, and then they saw the people on their wheel chairs, they would say that those must be the kings and queens. Because they have special ramps, and they never have to get up.
