Important NOTE: This post originally came out December 20 of 20165. It is updated to reflect a publishing change. AWOC Books closed its doors, and my co-author and I just released the book on I'll Push You Steer: The Definitive Guide to Stumbling through Life with Blinders On on Kindle.

People around the world are celebrating miracles at this time of year, which is December, in case you read this some months in the future. Jews celebrate the miracle of the oil, Hindus the miracle of light, and Christians the miracle of the savior's birth, just to mention a few.

I'll Push You Steer Kindle cover

I was thinking about one of the stories in my first book, I'll Push You Steer, with my fabulous co-author and dear friend Bonnie Tesh. We each shared tales from our journey in what many would call "disability."

Award Winning & Best Selling Author Ronda Del Boccio's Books On Amazon

One of my contributions, "An Angel Came," is the story of how myt belief trumped the church's teachings when I went to visit a comatose woman in the hospital. Martha was not expected to awaken.

Do you expect miracles? I do. P

Inspiration with an Attitude: I’ll Push You Steer 2nd Edition Now on Kindle

My first book, I’ll Push, You Steer: The Definitive Guide to Stumbling through Life with Blinders On is out of print but now available on Kindle.

I can dly believe that it's been almost 11 years since my co-author Bonnie Tesh and I started working on our first book. People kept - and still keep - telling us how inspiring we both are. She has survived cancer 3 times now. I am mostly blind. Neither of us lets these supposed disabilities stop us.

We were sitting beside each other at a regional writing conference listening to a group of 4 women share their journey co-authoring their book.

We started to think we could do that. We could turn our spunky attitude into a book that could provide comfort, inspiration, and a kick in the pity pot.

We met in May to plan our book, and we finished it in 10 weeks. The next month, a publisher picked it up, and we had it in our hands 6 months after the journey began. Below is the cover (which neither of usever liked) of our original print version of I'll Push, You Steer: The Definitive Guide to Stumbling through Life with Blinders on.

I'm continually surprised by people telling me I'm inspiring. OK wow, that sounds like maybe I'm being prideful, but I'm honestly not. I'm just a mostly blind woman living my life, refusing to let a little thing like low vision get me down.

After a bunch of years after my first book I'll Push You Steer with my fabulous co-I'll Push You Steer by Ronda Del Boccio and Bonnie Teshauthor Bonnie Tesh, people come up to me and tell me how much they loved the story of the ironing board for the blind, or the story about how I can't get a man with a dog.

And people ask me how I do various things or laugh at my travel tales with Molly Flagtail, my former guide dog. So, I decided to have some fun and start a weekly podcast called "Low Vision Hijinx." Yeah, I create podcasts in my spare time, for fun!

Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Accepted into the iTunes Store in Record Time - 96 Minutes!

OK technically maybe 96 minutes isn't record time, I don't know for sure; but honestly, I thought I had a couple days to let people know it was coming! Yes, 96 minutes from "under review" to "published in the Tunes Store." Here's the cool cover art:

The Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Logo

Low Vision Hijinx Podcast: Not Much Eyesight - Plenty of VISION!

I designed this cover myself! (Thank you, Canva.com for making me look good!) The cover needs to be:

  • Simple
  • eye-catching
  • readable as a teensy icon in iTunes
  • Relevant to the show's theme and content

I chose a nice readable font. When I found the adorable bumblebee with a magnifying glass, I decided that was the perfect graphic. Anyone with limited eyesight has to do things that seem impossible or at least extremely difficult.

Bumblebees shouldn't be able to fly, by all the laws of physics. Yet they do. This is a real world, every day miracle. Perfect symbol.

Low Vision Hijinx Podcast Episodes

Each show will be under 10 minutes, except perhaps for something superbly spectacularly special.

  • Episode 1: That's where you get to know me a little better.
  • Episode 2: "Just Growl and Mean It" - getting rid of  stalker.
  • Episode 3: The Perfect Travel Roommate" - That's what Bonnie calls me, because she gets to hog the bathroom while I put my makeup on in the dark. 😀

Watch for new episodes every Thursday.

Why this podcast?

I'm doing this to share a message of hope and joy. Limited eyesight need NEVER limit your life! Everyone will be touched with some degree of eyesight loss with age or with illness or accident. That need not slow you down one bit!

I hope these stories will give you a laugh and something to think about.

Follow your BLISS,
