This is the picture adorning the Easter gift bag Mac received from our good friends (and is now framed & hanging on the wall).
Before we arrived the kids had busied themselves creating an impressive portrait of Mac right down to some spiky hair, a rocket boosted wheelchair and a ‘vert’ ramp for carrying out some ‘gnarly tricks’
The title of the picture was “Mac the Magnificent” – how cool is that!
There are so many things to consider about ‘what’s in’ and ‘what’s not in’ the picture.
Mac has cool, coloured, and very high, hair.
That chair is moving fast – check out those motion lines.
A ‘vert’ ramp is not for the feint-hearted – I wonder, “doth high expectations maketh the man?”
Mac is definitely grinning in this pic – what 8yo boy wouldn’t be.
No one has thought to deny Mac the ‘dignity of risk’ – he’s not even wearing a helmet or pads ;-).
There is no sign of an ‘adult’ drawn in hovering around him.
Mac’s got a clear sense of style in the pic which goes some way to showing how he is perceived by others – an individual/different… sure, cool? definitely!
There’s no suggestion rocket launchers shouldn’t be on wheelchairs (I wholeheartedly agree). There is no limitation being placed on Mac.
Mac ‘the Magnificent‘… may you continue
to ‘rocket’ & roll without fear or limitation.
