These moments of connection inspire much of my activism, academic and artistic work, which seeks to challenge our ideas about sexiness. I was tired of never seeing sexy images of people with disabilities. So, after much thought, and encouragement from my best friend (who's an amazing photographer), we decided to change that.Mrs. M (Maciejewski) was of no relation. She had worked with the girl's grandmother twenty years earlier in the secretarial pool of a small but successful company that sold ice to restaurants and, eventually, larger corporations and the occasional fair ground. Everyone needed ice.
Mrs. M moved into the retirement home a year after her husband died. She'd done all the cooking, all the bill keeping. But he'd done all the driving. Their car hadn't so much as left the garage for five years but should the need arise, should she, for example, need to get to the hospital, he'd argued, he was the one with the license. And he'd be damned.
