I think that little guy is acutely aware of being powerless. And I don't think he has an inflated sense of singularity. Searching my memory bank, I know no other armless farm boys. xoxoxo

Mary's comment made me curious enough to Google armless farm boy. First up: this blog. Second: an excerpt from a book called The Road Home by Jim Harrison: "There is no more melancholy task than to help shape the thoughts of an armless farm boy from Missouri of nineteen years who will never guide a team of horses again." Civil War era. Very sad. I may never Google again.
You stay sassy, Armless Farm Boy!

Acceptance - knowing the limitations of ones own abilities. I know this one well. Doesn't mean I follow the rules (winks). (Hugs)Indigo

What means something to most does not have the same meaning to us all. Reminds me of when a certain mega entertainer passed away and how little impact it had on me. Other than the universal feeling of loss that is felt whenever there is a tragedy, I could have cared less. About him, his art, or his family.

That is what came to mind with this 'draws'.
