#TuesdayThought: Nicholas Viselli

"There are many professions in this world, that legitimately, if you have a disability, you might not be able to do. If I'm in a wheelchair, I might not ever be able to work construction on a high-rise building. If I'm blind, I might not ever be able to be a brain surgeon. But as artists, we create our own realities. We create the reality that we present before an audience. Since we create the rules, everything goes out the window, and disability can matter only as much as we want it to matter." — Nicholas Viselli
