Riding with Ghosts

Filenote: PDF retail from EBL. Publisher/EBL seem to have created it through taking their great epub and switched over to PDF + pagination instead of the common attractive PDF imprint.

Frank and often outrageous, this is often an account of a 40-something Englishwoman's epic 4,000 mile cycle experience from Seattle to Mexico, through the snow-covered Rockies, often on my own and camping out within the wild. She runs appalling dangers and copes in a gutsy, hilarious method with exhaustion, climatic extremes, risky animals, eccentrics, lechers, and a completely saddle-sore backside. We percentage her deep involvement with the West's pioneering earlier, and with the tragic strains that history has left lingering at the land.

When she rides the pale trails of the vanished American Indian international locations she monitors a powerful sensitivity to the ambience of the miraculous panorama, as though the moments of its shiny prior are striking within the air, basically expecting her to conjure them up vividly—sometimes with humor, and regularly with ardour.

As she travels, the ghosts of Lewis and Clark, leader Joseph and Geronimo, Custer and loopy Horse—all the mythical figures of the previous West—ride together with her.

Mara Mills, “Deaf Jam: From Inscription to Reproduction to Information,” Social Text 102 28, no. 1 (Spring 2010): 35–­57. Mills calls deafness an “assistive pretext” to invention, noting that the use of deaf people and deafness was not always directly beneficial to deaf people themselves.

Instead, what I experienced was twofold; through this experience I was finally able to name and identify the dual experiences I had known for all of my life. One was the sense of hearing privation from those experiences of not wearing my hearing aids—­that is, the lack of knowledge of what it is to hear in a species-­typical way. The other was the sense of deaf privation from my experiences of wearing my hearing aids—­that is, the lack of knowledge of what it is to be deaf. On my account, it seems that being able to decide whether or not one engages in a sensory experience may be as much a benefit as having just one sensory experience.

Perhaps the greatest contribution would be that deaf people could represent a way of adapting to the skills needed in a digital world while maintaining the face-­to-­face contact, which is a hallmark of the deaf community. They are able to straddle both arenas in ways that hearing people would do well to emulate. The aforementioned examples of Deaf Gain ahead are by no means exhaustive. Many more could be cited and elaborated.
