I have a friend who is a photographer who has an idea for making computer assisted photo equipment for the handicapped. I’m not completely sure about the details but I know he wants to upgrade a camera so its handicapped accessible. The rest such as editing can be done through the computer which has already been made accessible to us. What a wondrous world this would open up for us.
Before I was injured I was an artist, a painter and a photographer, then when I broke my neck, my hands were paralyzed making all my passions out of my reach. I mourned their loss just as much as walking, When I was told that I had permanently lost the use of my hands I went into a mourning period that lasted years. Even though, I could have learned to write, draw, and paint with a brace using my wrist, I never took the time to practice and only signed my name when I was forced to. I miss painting every day but don’t feel it would be good time management to try it again it. So I never have. But one of these days I must. I just have to get Eric to set up my easel and have Michelle get paint, brushes, water, rags, and brace. She’ll also have to sit by side and change and clean my brushes and water regularly.
