  • Access: Feelgood Flicks,

    Love this story and the reviews. And what a great role model you have been Russell. Please don't let him go all up market and studio - keep that authentic bedroom and t-shirt thing going.

    What good news. I guess as parents we just have to be patient - our support just needs to go on and on while others' adult children maybe sort out their own lives. And celebrate the victories when they happen. Best wishes for more in 2015.

    Can't think of any of her paintings with disability themes, but she did do a lovely portrait of Quentin http://collections.tepapa.govt.nz/exhibitions/RitaAngus/Artworks.aspx?irn=709

    Pride. Stand out. In its 3rd month at Wellington's Penthouse. True story and heart-warming for old lefties. Bonus of lovely Welsh scenery, accents and singing.

    My favourite writing this year is Robert Martin's biography written by John McRae called Becoming a Person. Not for any great literary merit but because it is one of NZ's hidden stories of citizenship denied, and then made good. Robert grew up in various institutions but is now a nominee for a UN committee. The book sits nicely next to Dirty Politics, its Craig Potton stablemate.

  • Hard News: We're in this together,

    Thanks for the Access opportunity, Russell and Sacha. Good to have something pan-disability as a sort of successor to the humans autism blog (which I hope is archived somewhere for some fine early disability writing from Giovanni and others now old hands). Some of my posts on Access are ideas revisited from my PhD thesis on autism - not the conventional way to publish, but suits me better and I like the way the discussions meander.

    Emerge has just emailed with a very positive response. Going to see them in January. A helpful attitude goes a long way.

    The job initially came with Emerge's help - they still keep in touch. It was set up by parents in the early 80s and has retained good community principles.
