Mary Renault tells the story of Hyppolyita’s people, the Amazon folk, in The Bull from the Sea. The story is born out by the Takla Mummies found in the Gobi desert with Celtic/Caucasian DNA, plaids, long red hair and other Celtic attributes...

Most people refer to it as a disability. I almost see it as a gift. To experience near death and be able to view life from a new positive perspective is something I have found many Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) survivors have in common...
