Why a link to 100 Acorns on my blog?


100 Acorns is an art site hosted by Yoko Ono. She is celebrating 40 years ssince she and john Lennon planted acorns for peace. She issues conceptual instructions for you to follow o not, to discuss or not.

I am putting up my own responses. Many of them concern disability. I have located other disabled people through this involvement and i am satisfied from the returns to my blog that my message of equality is being heard and contributors have an opportunity to listen and challenge themselves.

But it also an opportunity to challenge myself. Yoko is currently promoting dance as a way of coping with the changing world we live in. She is currently issuing conceptual instructions concerning dance. Todays instruction had me cogitating on St Vitus. St Vitus the martyr, opatron of actors and dancers, who is invoked against epilepsy. I have already discussed, on this blog, the religious model of disability. https://detrich.wordpress.com/2008/08/20/i-dont-get-religion-where-now-the-religious-mopdel-of-disability/ Imagine the usefulness of chanting St Vitus’s name to a person with epilepsy when s/he is fitting. Is it a fit response? What would your response be? Do you know enough to help? Would you compound the issue being faced – makeit worse for someone? What do you know about epilepsy?
