Abstract

Aging with a disability means learning howto accept deeper water, and deeper waterdoes not mean drowning. In my life, inde-pendency and self-sufficiency kept me closeto shore where my feet remained groundedon the bottom. Interdependence andresourcefulness now allows me to grow andto move out into deeper water, letting go,going with the flow, being buoyed up, defyinggravity, swimming, moving on, and growingup.
