I believe that my experiences can be summed up in the following:
Having shared that, let’s get down to the real reason I’m in here: TO LIVE!
Not just stay alive or survive (although some times that was the focus at hand!), but to keep on living. The first thing you must do in life is love. Not someone else – yourself! There have been many moments that was not an easy thing to do. Sitting in my ’68 Pontiac Lemans, broke down again on a back-woods road in upper Wisconsin, crying. Feeling very sorry for myself and repeating, “Why does this always happen to me?” What an idiot I was!
If I could have seen then, all that I would know now I’m sure I would have laughed!
