Week #8 has been more difficult than the first seven. I guess I call it the Monday Mantra Challenge for good reason. I don’t know what’s going on but I have a sneaking suspicion that it has to do with all the Bull shit that is going on in the world right now. I don’t know who decided to name us ManKind but I’m pretty sure they aren’t too happy with us.

I look at this photograph and I think about all that would be missing without both the subtle and the stark variations in the visual elements. Why can’t we have the same appreciation for our human differences. It seems to me that one particular political candidate who is long on cash and short on compassion might heed this advice.

As well, of course, anger, too.

It’s hard to do a movie about people with disabilities, as you can sometimes tell when a writer/director is sneering at those less fortunate then them. At the same time, however, it’s also hard to do them justice without ever making people with disabilities seem as if they are ungodly-like saints that Christ himself would have christened, had he the chance to do so. After all, they’re just like you or I, normal…
