As I approach 55 years old, I can say that I've had a great life, but I've also had challenges. I've always been one who wants to share the great things I find with others. Those who know, know that I am not out to bring the spotlight on me. In and of myself, I am a non-descript older man who has never been mistaken for a hunk, nor am I a mental giant. I am not particularly glib, nor do I have the gift of gab. I am every man. As we all go through life, we each encounter people, places, and events which are special. Some even change us for the rest of our lives and beyond. Most of us want to share these things, and other things are special only to us or those who were present. I will be putting forth my experiences during my battling Cauda Equina Syndrome so that both groups of people may share and enjoy the journey my life has been, and will be. May you draw strength and inspiration. Enjoy!
