We all die. do it with style
Life is short. We only get one chance at this life and I've already wasted too much time trying to be like everyone else. I now spend every moment being me. It turns out I like dancing around town in my wheelchair and sharing smiles with the world. I hope to encourage everyone to get out of their houses; preferably while dancing.
It turns out that it's hard to be in a bad mood when you're dancing or watching someone else dance.
Join me and dance when you see me dancing. Also, try to figure out what song I'm dancing to. I listen to tons of stuff from various decades and genres. I'm trying to raise money for a van and I could always use more solar lights. I'm a not-quite-starving-but-pretty-poor artist.
Isolation is a deadly habit easily fallen into, especially for those of us with disabilities. Getting outside and being social is so important. I believe wheelchairs and other mobility aids are mobile billboards. Hopefully one day people will rent our ad apace. In the meantime, I use mine to shout positive messages to my town while I dance.
This website also allows me to recognize and celebrate the many heroes in my life. As a professional DID (damsel in distress) I have had the honor of being rescued by many people in a wide variety of crazy situations. I love sharing how I met Superman or Elvis, bragging about my departments of heroes, and telling stories of ordinary people who do what they can with what they have to help someone who needs help.
My coconspirators page showcases other artists, musicians, authors, designers, and other creative people who also are changing the world from the seat of their wheelchairs.
There are many things I can't do like walk. Each of us is capable of doing our part to make the world a better place. I get to do that by being myself and having fun in my wheelchair. How lucky am I?
I'm not the only person trying to change the world from the seat of a wheelchair. Please support all of us who dare to take the "dis" out of disability.
In my role as a professional damsel in distress, I have had the pleasure of being rescued or witnessing incredible acts of heroism from many people. Here are a few of their stories.
My name is Becky. Dancing around town is only part of my story. I do my best to make a difference in the world while I'm alive to do it.
