I’ve been playing with these girls for some time. I’d been having a conversation with myself about connectedness, coming from everywhere but feeling that I belonged no where; aggregate of my interactions and experiences but belonging to no one. In that too, is the dynamic of functioning but with missing parts - helpless in some aspects, powerful in others - ambidextrous amputees.
I hurt my right hand quite foolishly a week and a half ago…so like these, I’m learning to put some faith in my weaker limb - but there are some things I absolutely cannot manage with my left - like drawing. Fortunately, nothing’s broken so I’m hoping it’ll be totally pain and trauma free really soon. It has to be.
This is work in progress.
