The Blue Wings of the Dragonfly

Finding Magic in Everyday, Everyone, and Everything

In this all too human memoir, you’ll walk casually through childhood moments and adult routines periodically seized with fear, shame, anger, trauma and deep loss as you journey through Roggeman’s world. Veiled thinly beneath the graceful and sweet storyline is everyone’s journey through life. Messy, absurd and overflowing with affliction and loss. It speaks to us of being human through pain, yet always alluding to change, growth and hope.

It is about loving who you are, giving back to society and embracing your fears. We don’t realize all the things we internalize. They dwell in the shadows of our mind. It takes courage not to be afraid of revealing or feeling your hidden emotions. To be vulnerable. Moving and tender, you’re driven towards unity and possibility as you cry, and smile with her.

This book is compelling and written from the heart. By chance, I think not. Everything happens for a reason. We may not recognize it at the time, but it will eventually be revealed to us. I learned to be the dutiful daughter, the caring mother, the loving wife, and the devoted sibling. Somewhere in all of this, I lost myself along the way. This book will hopefully help others to find themselves. To have a better understanding of life and what makes you happy, sad, joyful, fearful, and loved. To follow your inner guidance to listen and know that in the silence is where you will find yourself, for you are never alone. I hope that you discover your BLISS!

A beautifully painted story

I read from start to finish today. A beautifully painted story that carried me through her life’s journeys.
Made me realize that I am not alone…that others have had trials and pain and loss. The love of our four-legged babies is universal. Find the joy that is everywhere you just have to open your eyes.

She is a warrior on this earth and it was a privilege to get to know her by reading this book.
Thank you!
