  • Mirror magic

    A month or so ago, I met a man with part of his right arm missing – he was a tree trimmer and had an accident involving a chain saw.
    I asked him if the missing part ever hurt. He said as a matter of fact, it was bothering him as we were talking.
    Doctors call it “phantom pain.” The limb or body part is no longer there, but the person may still feel as if it is. Sometimes an amputated foot tickles or gets that “pins and needles” sensation of having fallen asleep. Sometimes a missing arm or leg aches or itches – or hurts like heck.

    “Unlike a store-bought present, a handmade present is a personalized treasure made by you!” says Meg Survil, general manager of the brand MakIt, which preserves children’s artwork on objects like plates and bowls.
