I am borrowing this graphic from the last carnival by Retired Waif who, by the way, hasn't been heard from in a few days. Perhaps she's celebrating the birth of her baby?! Let's hope so! The wait can be so endless. My first child was 17 days late in coming which gave her time to "bulk up" to a hefty 9lbs. 7 oz. But I digress...
This photo is of a statue of a naked woman sitting with her right leg outstretched. She has no arms, appears to have only one leg, a deformed foot, and she's (I'm assuming) very pregnant. I would love to know more about this statue. Where is it? Who is it? What "story" is it representing? Anyone know?
What better way to introduce the newest edition to the Disability Blog Carnival by Zephyr at Arthritic Young Thing. Her theme: "Let's Talk About Sex, Babee" and according to Zephyr, "boy, did you bloggers ever talk about sex!"
Just kidding. This is anything but "a Carnival 'O Smut" as she put it. Zephyr has worked hard to pull together a carnival discussing a genuinely important topic and laced with posts by smart, thoughtful bloggers, many of whom we do know and some we're looking forward to *meeting* and getting to know.
I must say, generally speaking, Arthritic Young Thing is an uninhibited young thing. More power to her! She has strong convictions and a strong voice and I admire that. I could say that reading many of Zephyr's other posts on her blog makes me feel old and stodgy but I'm reminded of the famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote: "No one can make you feel inferior with out your consent." So instead I'll simply say "I'm stodgy and proud of it"!
I am not old, however.
