Chris Skyhawk is rewiring his brain, and he thinks the rest of us should do it, too

Three years ago, community activist and counselor Chris Skyhawk was facing a runoff with Ted Williams for the District 5 supervisor seat. Then, suddenly, he faced a life-changing event in the form of a stroke, which forced him to drop out of the race and enter a lengthy period of rehabilitation. He's still recovering. In this interview, he talks about his progress, why he feels lucky to be able to rewire his brain -- and why the rest of us need to rewire as well.
