Wheels of Imagination

Adventures and Verses of Resilience

by Tomi Wright

This book is a collection of stories, poems and articles about life and certain lessons gleaned from experiencing all it has to offer. Living as a disabled person presents all sorts of challenges and opportunities. The research is backed by reputable sources and is an in-depth exploration of the interesting perspectives offered by someone who has lived on both sides of the disability spectrum (PWDs).

"I am unable to fathom how I would think, feel and live if rendered immobile and wheelchair-bound for the rest of my life from my mid-twenties. The mental storeroom of childhood years of going around and about with parents, siblings, friends, schoolmates, and teen years of secondary school and university life with such variety of social activities and physical interactions, and more, will be running riot when just bludgeoned by one incident into numberless, numbing could-have-beens or what-now-possible reflections and scenarios. What we have in this forthrightly brilliant and surreal collection of thoughts and facts include winged wheels of those inflicted, rolling through life with ruminations, a glimpse of the world through their eyes, some tales by sunlight and various verses which speak of them and on their behalf." - Professor Dafe Otobo, DPhil (Oxford), Lagos, Nigeria
