Mary reminds us how the simplest things can be beautiful when a woman is paralyzed. The way her toes quiver when she wheels on rough terrain, how each leg is picked up to be moved, even how shoes and nylons can be a beautiful challenge. Mary takes time to show us that sometimes the simple things in life can be paralyzed perfection.
Cleopatra dressed so beautifully, long silent legs so beautiful displayed for your attention in a slinky evening dress. She embodies beauty as she transfers to sofa to adorn her nails with paint. Then its to her bedchamber to undress, give her legs some wonderful attention just for you before changing into the clothes of Cinderella. Today is house cleaning and she slips into her working world clothes and invites you to keep her company as she sweeps and does many other chores that you would enjoy watching if she was in your home, being your companion and personal paraplegic housekeeper.
Beautiful Primavara. So tall and always seated in a wheelchair. Rarely does she attempt to stand on legbraces but when she does, she stands all and majestic. Today is one of those days. With her legs wrapped in sleet Primavara attempts to stand alone, without help. So dangerous for her and it results in her falling, loosing control of her legs and hitting the ground hard. Her pride wounded, she wont allow our camera person to help. instead she struggles to straighten her legs, remove her braces and hide her disappointment.
Cleopatra wakes and reveals her legs and feet before rolling over on her bed. She moves her long slender legs by hand and moves around on her bed before transferring. Then its to the shower. she shows how she has mastered using a bathroom that isnt wheelchair accessible and transfers into the shower to shave her legs. She returns to her bedroom and bed to dress, then lowers herself to the floor to pull herself and her wheelchair to the livingroom. Once there she gets on the sofa, and back into her wheelchair to return to the bedroom where she holds her legs int the air to roll a pair of nylons up her paralyzed legs and puts shoes on her motionless feet.
