Do you know a person with a brain injury? Pat did.
All Barb really wanted was to be treated like everyone else. All her family wanted was for her to be safe and well cared for, especially after a life-changing accident that left her brain-injured. Stubborn and determined, Barb carved out a life for herself, overcoming many obstacles. After her husband died, she needed assistance.
Her sister and brother-in-law encouraged her to come live with them. The family thought they were providing a home for a family member, but they had no idea what dealing with brain injury meant. They found out!

Pat Stanford’s poetry is a collection of the many topics and events that naturally occur in a person’s life. There is a road traveled that is not necessarily a straight and easy one, which weaves through the seasons of life. Thoughts are shared with you, the reader. A connection to be made? Or perhaps just a reflection of your own life made easier to visualize. Some are raw emotions, and some are written tongue-in-cheek; some are about the turbulence of youth written in a youthful perspective, and some by a more mature person. Some will make an immediate connection, and some may need to be read again.
The author meditates on love, friendship, nature, personal identity, and some seriously fun things.
