“I think Connor would be the last person to label you like that. You shouldn't get so offended if someone calls you disabled, Aven. You DO have extra challenges that others don't have. It DOES take you longer to do most tasks. Your movements ARE limited. There's a big difference between saying you're disabled and saying you're incapable.”
Dusti Bowling, Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus

“I felt like I was shining, and this time I thought maybe it wasn’t just the moon. Maybe the light was in me.”
Dusti Bowling, Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus

“we all face choices in life. Some are small,insignificant choices like what to wear to the prom or what to say to your crush when you see him walking down the hall. Those choices may or may not have long-term effects on our lives. You never know. Then there are choices that are so huge, so important,you know you are altering the path of your life as you make them.”
