China Goodhue

August 25, 2015


My sister had told me about her friend China, whom she'd met many years ago through China's mother. When China was 18 months old a drunk driver crashed into her parent's car. China suffered severe injuries to her brain, resulting in both cognitive and physical impairments. Yet she lives on her own, she cooks for herself, shops, and is an artist. What most impressed me was her spirit, exemplified in her bright fabric art.

Music: "The Good Old Days," by my friend, Toronto and Bahamas based singer/songwriter/musician Jenny Mayhem. You can hear more of Jenny's great songs and purchase individual tracks at:
