Those Days When Your Ramp Becomes a Boat


This beautiful piece of art was made for me by my sister. It is the first part of a series portraying the innocence of the interactions between children and disability.

[Description: A child squats on a wheelchair ramp leading up to a patio, grasping the side, gazing perpendicular to the camera. The yard around her is replete with backyard paraphenalia. In a thought bubble on the top right, is the following poem:

I found this raft tethered
Unwanted along the shore
Its wobbly and weathered
But will sail a few times more
I followed a little fishy
Swimming, fast and free
We'll sail into the sunset
'Till Mommy comes for me

by Faith K Friedman]

If somebody made this for me, I'd hang it on my fridge to look at every day. :)
