On Silver Wings by Kristin Noreen

Kristin had everything-her own home, an exciting career, fulfilling volunteer work-in an instant that all changed. She went for a bike ride, but woke up a week later on life support, her life forever altered. In August 2010 an inattentive driver sent her and her bicycle flying into a ditch, and this independent professional was reduced to being totally dependent on others. Medical professionals, family, friends, colleagues, and cats all played their parts in her recovery. Even her beloved touring bike Silver was recovered and reconstructed. On Silver Wings: A Life Reconstructed is the story of one woman's struggle to face her changed life, and rebuild it on her own terms. Kristin Noreen picked up the pieces and reassembled them into something new, a bit different, but still her own. The journey taught her some surprising lessons about disability and the hardships we all face. It was not just about physical rehabilitation, but about living in her changed body and building a life that was more than just surviving. This story speaks of resilience with grace and humor, the will to regain strength, and the freedom of movement. Today Kristin is bicycle touring again. And you? What if the rules had changed and you didn't have the same range of choices you once did? If you faced your own death and got a second chance, what would you change about your life?
