mixed riches

4 Sep

In the first grade there were two films I experienced that may have really shaped part of who I would become, one was Jason and the Argonauts, and I think it’s influence is obvious – but the other, the other was this short film about Bonnie Consolo, who manage(d/s) her daily affairs while armless:

I believe the rest of the film can also be found on the youtube.

The lessons of Bonnie Consolo were maybe less obvious to my classmates, but as it’s rattled around my brain over the years I have to wonder how much of my acceptance of, and interest in, things outside the norm were formed by being shown this strong, different, extremely capable Mother.

And now, years later, I have the opportunity to reach back into the dusty corners of my skull and re-examine the whole thing – an opportunity provided by an amputee fetishist?

Thanks, Internet?
