Walk, Stop, Walk

As one who has had polio, and as I have aged,  my gate has become bumpy with many pauses.  Thus I find myself  looking at the small units of the  world around me.  This is actually  pretty cool  as I focus on interesting details that I surely missed  in the days when I could speed walk.


“My Chest Hurts – Bacterial Tracheitis”

As a synesthete, if I care to “look” at what I feel, I can draw it.  This is what a sore chest felt like.    It was all sort of squeezey pressure with points of pain like a very sore throat in the wrong place.  The fabric piece is sewn directly on a commercial 12″ square stretched linen canvas.  I am quite well now,  and all that remains, thankfully, is the artwork.
