Artist's Description

ALTHOUGH I HAVEN’T TAKEN THIS IMAGE INTO PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS, IT DOESN’T LOOK TO BAD. I TOOK MY KODAK Z71 CAMERA AND SHOT THE FRAMED PORTRAIT THAT IS HANGING ON THE WALL OF OUR SPARE BEDROOM. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THAT IS “ME IN 1952”. BY MY SIZE I WOULD SAY ABOUT OCTOBER OF 1952, I WAS BORN IN MAY OF THAT YEAR. YOU COULDN’T TELL IT BY LOOKING AT ME TODAY THOUGH. SINCE I WAS BORN WITH ASTHMA, I WASN’T A VERY BIG BABY. EVERY TIME I HAD AN ASTHMA ATTACK, I GOT STUCK IN THE HOSPITAL UNDER AN OXYGEN TENT WITH A CASE OF PNEUMONIA. FOR THE FIRST SIX YEARS OF MY LIFE, I SPENT A TOTAL OF TWO YEARS UNDER ONE OF THOSE TENTS. THEN I GOT POLIO WHEN I WAS 5, TOOK THE CURE, GOT THE DESEASE. THEN AT THE AGE OF 13, I GREW 7 INCHES IN TWO AND ONE HALF MONTHS. I GOT OUT OF THE 7TH GRADE AT 5 FOOT 5 INCHES AND WENT INTO THE 8TH GRADE AT 6 FEET TALL. THE KIDS I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH IN THE 7TH GRADE KEPT ASKING ME WHERE I MOVED THERE FROM. I KEPT TELLING THEM, I WAS IN THEIR CLASS LAST YEAR. THEY COULDN’T BELIEVE I HAD GROWN THAT MUCH IN SUCH A SHORT TIME. WELL, I’M PAYING FOR THE POLIO AND THE GROWTH SPREE NOW. ANYWAY, I WAS CUTE AT ONE TIME. I ACTUALLY HAD HAIR ON TOP OF MY HEAD BACK THEN.
