THE BOY WITH THE SAFETY CONE HEART. A commission for a gift for a boy with cerebral palsy, who must be vigilant at all times to avoid injury, because he doesn’t “feel” pain in the way we understand. The client explained the situation to me and then gave me a lot of leeway, which was a blessing and a curse, but I think it worked out. I’m a believer in turning circumstances to your benefit, although I’ve never faced a challenge remotely as difficult as living with cerebral palsy. Continually amazed and inspried by people who are able to find their way, and even thrive, in difficult straits.
