Here is one of the first pictures I drew back in 1977 in an attempt to address my feeling inside of constriction. Though I could barely talk about the details of my operation, I could draw pictures. This image helped me begin to understand how I felt. Wow, look how out of balance I am! Only one foot on the ground and this foot is turned in. And my poor flat head with a space inside.
Looking at this image brings me sadness and joy, sadness that I felt so bound and joy that I got this image into representation, out of myself. Over the years, I’ve been able to show this image to others. It explains so much that words cannot really equal.
