My Reaction to What I Think This Collage Means

Linda, wow! what a heartfelt commentary. You definitely have a lot of good ideas and I thank you for sharing them with us. You are absolutely right--other people can't always see our impairments and disabilities when they are internal instead of external, like you can see in the picture. And you're right on the money when you say that this disabled artist "suffers" from and is just as real as challenges that people have which is seen by people on the outside. And that is the purpose of my artwork. To show that people with impairments on the outside also can have impairments on the inside, such as low self esteem, lack of motivation, depression, feeling isolated, etc. It is not an automatic thing, but some people do experience that. And then there are those who have impairments that are internally emotional and/or physical, which
people may not know that we struggle with on a daily basis. I'm glad you took the time to really look at the picture, think about it and then share your thoughts with us. By the way, you have a great sense of humor--a wonderful thing to have!
