It’s Just One Of Those Days

; Today, I am away from home for work and I drive back home this afternoon, a two and a half hour drive that could take as long as four hours with Sunday afternoon traffic. Normally, it does not bother me, but today is one of those days. My postherpatic neuralgia is in full force….

Put Them Up To Pull Them Down

Making It Through On Love

I am a very, very blessed man, and I know it. I get a few emails in response to “My Story” where I give a brief synopsis of my journey with sarcoidosis and heart failure, and I get at least one email a week commenting on how “hard” my experience has been, or asking for…

Facing Challenges

That which challenges you, you either face head on or you avoid completely, but if you chose to avoid it, rest assured that you will face it another day. ~ Basil Rene (I Think) Well I am pretty sure I came up with that one, but I am also sure it has been said before…

The Passages Of Time

Why is it that time flies? When I was a boy, it seemed as if time took forever to pass through my universe, but now as an adult, a day, a month, a year flies by in the blink of an eye. I have been at this blogging adventure for a little over two years…
