The Compliment

I really LOVE this drawing by Jeannel King – such a simple and elegant instruction that so many of us need to practice.  You can see it on her Pinterest site  (and more of her work) or on her blog.   You can also subscribe to her excellent “good enough” drawing series.

But I also felt compelled to draw the thing that actually seems to happen for people (including me) 🙂

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
