Day 339 : ginny


Sandy: I met an extraordinary person yesterday who is an artist, Ginny Ruffner. She is well-known for her intricate glass sculptures. After talking with her over lunch, I went directly to see her enormous metal sculpture “planted” in front of the Sheraton, Seattle. The potted flowers are 28-feet. After Ginny recovered from a near-fatal car crash more than 20 years ago, she has a team who creates her vision. Ginny, naturally left-handed, was forced rely only on her right hand after the accident. I asked her if it affected her art. She revealed that she was fortunate to have always had good dexterity in both hands and learned to be bossy. From what I can surmise, the massive head injury did not diminish her creativity, spunk nor ambition – it is visible in her art.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
