I have always loved Helen Keller. I remember in school I did a project on her ….twice! I often try to imagine what it would have been like to be not able to hear or see. I can’t though, really. It’s too hard. Then I think how much we all really take for granted and probably don’t even appreciate it. The birds in the morning…it’s like coffee to me! No, I can not even imagine.
I often think I could never live if I had no arms/hands…I have to draw. It is in me, my release. I would draw with my mouth or even my feet if I had to! We are just so lucky and we should definitely appreciate it.
I had done 4 designs for the local Lion’s Club here because it centers around Helen Keller, and so I designed these with her in mind. They are her quotes and I pictured in my head what they would look like on paper. Here is one.
