ellonwheels tells all

A New Blog On The Block

Ellen Wilson only recently began her blog, ellonwheels tells all and I only happened to stumble across it as she began it. I'm glad I did. I'm tempted to mention first some of her disabilities that she writes about on her blog, but I think it worthwhile to mention quickly her abilities. I had no qualms at all about adding her to my Intelligent Blogs list; she's smart, sensitive, maintains a sense of humor under difficult circumstances. She's not trying to be an entertainer, but she's a good writer and seems to me a talented artist. I'm hoping that later she gives us the option of seeing the photos of her paintings a little larger so that I can enjoy them more.

The serious topics that Ellen writes about and suffers from include Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder), wheelchair and disability issues, and Transverse Myelitis. I don't pretend to know all about that or all about her. But I think she's a woman with a lot of spirit and honesty of expression. As a Blogger, I believe she's just starting—at least, just starting this one!— and doing very well. I can well believe she has been a writer elsewhere, but to throw herself out there as a Blogger is a different thing. As a person therefore, she seems to me brave and admirable. If you will take a look at her blog and read a bit, you'll learn a lot more about these things than I can tell and maybe you'll see someone to admire and like there, too. Even Bloggers at a distance can like one another—and you know that can't be bad.

I hope a good number of people do get a chance to read and like Ellen's blog. I think she's a peach. Oh, yeah, that's right—she is in Georgia! Sorry for the corny joke; it just snuck up on me!
