My motto is, 'Never Quit.' ~Henry Rollins
Many times people give up. Overtaken by life, death, disease, or just circumstance - the flame of a life with purpose slowly dims. Not so for Barbara Blankinship, or BB, as those who know her well call her. Stricken by a massive stroke, BB has battled back into full form and a full life. Friends, fun, and art.... oh the art. She is an inspiration teaching us about true purpose in life.
She has always been artistic, but with the help of a wonderful artist friend - Larissa - she can paint and laugh and travel through imagination and dreams to create some of the work she shares with her friends on this site.
