I have been meaning to write up Leigh in this blog for some time now. This morning I was reminded why I should do so when he was “interviewed” at church. Apparently he used to have “JDI” at his work desk and “just do it” seems to sum up a large part of Leigh. Remarkably he has travelled to Africa, Europe and the States. And he has probably toured more of this country than most. He told us today how special it was to make it to Ephesus (Turkey). Nothing keeps him down and his droll sense of very dry humour is rarely too far away. It clearly has its roots in country Australia where the most serious things are dealt with as farmers the world over deal with them – with offhanded jocularity. But an even bigger part of Leigh is his heart for other people and the internet is his medium for encouraging others who are mobility bound. You never hear a grumble about his own situation but only compassion for others. The dozens of CP related groups he has set up on Facebook reflect something of that. I am never going to complain about my dodgy knees ever again.
