Such a light far in the distance gives my heart hope that the sun will shine on this lost soul once again.
As eachday I’m greeted by the kindness of strangers Ive known for years, yet never met. Grateful indeed am i for these angels by my side. It is your strength that gives me hope upon my darkest of days and lighte my nights as my demons run wild.
Though I find it odd how a man so blessed can be so cursed at the same time. Each of these diseases cancer and Parkindon’s alike clawing at me like beasts hellbent on my demise. Yet i find eachtime I’m at my lowest you are there. Having been given this life I choose eachday to try and live a life that if taken suddenly from me I’d be proud to say was mine.
Sadly these years have taken their toll and choices made in haste and in medicated blur have tarnished this once shining armor, so now i do what i must do. I write and paint. Share this life of mine for all to bare witness as i lose my mind and body to Parkison’s disease, dementia and cancer treatments.
In hopes that my struggles and my families loss of a leader,friend,husband and father isn’t in vain. That science can in some way be assisted or that another soul may be soothed by my lifes lessons, then and only then will any of this have mattered. May the world guide us all to do the right thing not just for ourselves but more importantly for humankind.
Much love and light always.
