Patricia Rogers is a seventy-six-year-old woman who has finally gotten the gumption to venture into publication. She has written stories, poetry and songs (not music because she doesn’t know how to write the music) even though she knows how it sounds, in her head and has done them as specials at church. She has a stack of notebooks that will keep her busy for a long time. She’s been handicapped since she was five, but never let it get her down. When the local kids played baseball, she used my crutch for a bat. She graduated from college as an art major and worked almost eighteen years as one of the first two handicapped people in the nation, as an officer in a county jail. She has lived an interesting and busy life. She studied Kung Fu for three years and wheelchair square danced. She’s a needle crafter, make jewelry, crochet, tat and does embroidery. Patricia loves learning to do new things. She has three things in her bucket list: to ride in a hot air balloon, swim with dolphins and see Earth from outer space (that one she believes she probably won’t make). She also participated in archery and swimming in the regional Paralympics, in Denver Colorado.
