To go or not to go is the question

It’s currently 0026hrs Sunday the 1st of December and that means just a month before 2013 comes to an end WOW!!!!!!! And it also marks just two days to go till the International Day of People with Disability on the 3rd of December (bet A LOT of people don’t know the day exists). for the first time since in 6 years since I coming to Australia I find myself wishing I had friends with disabilities here or I had my friends with disabilities from home with me. You see there’s a Disability Sport and Recreation Festival happening at the Federation Square in the city. Actually I stand corrected, the event happens annually. A part of me really wants to go and check it out since it’s a day full of different activities such as a community sport & recreation exhibition, a range of “come and try” accessible sport & recreation activities but at the same time I don’t want to go by myself. For the first time in a LONG time I really see just how different I am. I mean back home I wouldn’t have this issue but I would just simply pick up and the phone and there would be someone to go with who would understand the experience. Whereas out here who could I go with that would possibly understand what December the 3rd means? I guess the older I’m getting, the more I’m realising that sometimes it’s safer to people of my kind i.e those with disabilities simply for the mere reason that they understand certain things without me having to explain much.
