NOTE:
The panels are dark blue black with silver iridescence paint
and
the application of the paint are of overlapping layers
creating visual turbulence.
Each panel is marked with a hand drawn orange red pencil line. 
The panels are mounted on archival board.
The internal interstices / interplay of the panels
creates a pause, a silence, a leap, a focal of listening.
The spaces  between and the lines upon are significant.
The orange red line is in flux as the black blue roils.

All is shifting

and,

yet,

a serene balance

is

ACTUAL

in the

whole.

NOTE:
The panels are dark blue black with silver iridescence paint
and
the application of the paint are of overlapping layers
creating visual turbulence.
Each panel is marked with a hand drawn orange red pencil line. 
The four panels are mounted on archival board.
The internal interstices / interplay of the four panels
create a cross, a crossing,
and
the spaces between each is significant.

My Mother lost most of her amniotic fluid
at 20 weeks in her pregnancy.
I was born full term.
 I was born with congenital dysplasia of the hips, right knee, and feet
– as well as other joints.
My right leg was twisted around my neck.
Surgical reconstruction began at 6 months.
My body is a dynamic testament,
actualized visions,
the blooms,
of remarkable creative medical genius.
My life story has been a unique,
treasured story of collaboration
catalyzed by my
congenital complicated complex orthopedic equation
met with
the pioneering creative genius of orthopedic surgeons
and
physical therapists.

X

X

X

My story is an improvisational story
steeped in abiding trust;
tuning fork of recognition;
moral courage;
sacred listening;
mutual dedication;
the divinity of the brilliant light in creative genius;
and

RADICAL HOPE.

ALL of my toe joints were congenitally dislocated.

Yes, they looked like a lioness’ clawed paws.

X

X

On 27 December ,
TWO days ago,
Dr. Coetzee reconstructed each toe!
I was prepared to meet the post-operative pain
and
prevail through the 8 weeks of recovery.

X

My ensemble of friends are remarkable templates of character
– as are my selected orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists!
They all know I am a RISE UP action figure
NOT a potato chip planted/stuck onto a sofa.

TEAM – GOODNESS OF FIT!
