Thrust Into Chaos

Author Comments

On September 5th, 2011, I was hit and run over by a BNSF freight train in Longmont, Colorado while trying to jump onto a train car. Three 30 ton coal cars snapped my femurs and severed both femoral arteries. That accident took both my legs and put me in a wheelchair. I was 17.

Is doing a dangerous thing our fault?

I read the (brief) entry on your profile about this. It's easy to judge, to say that you were doing something dangerous and paid the price. Of course, you had done it before and were rewarded that it worked before. That's why "danger" is such an amorphous concept. Your art appropriately brings forth the confusion and chaos of suffering because of your decision, but a decision made when you could not have appreciated this possible result. I know I would blame myself anyway ...

This image is a nice expression of (what I imagine is) your personal turmoil. I hope you continue to adapt and that the chaos calms.

If that is so

...If that is so, then well done for surviving!! :)
