The side effects of medication for Parkinson's and the continuing changes in a person with Parkinson's life (to include being overwhelmed and bradykinesia) are discussed in this essay as they are compared to historic issues and current events feelings.

Thoughts on 9/10, / 9/11, and 9/12 attitudes and how it impacts the 16th anniversary of this tragedy, the 47th anniversary of my parents' wedding, and our day to day lives as members of this modern American world in 2017.

An essay on the metaphor of life as a journey (with pictures and video from the start of the A.T. shown here), either from the beginnings of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain in Georgia, from the beginning of Parkinson's (which I have), or from the start of any other accomplishment (like college or marriage). Enjoy my writings and thanks for reading. If you like this, there's lots more where it's posted.

An essay on the realities and joys of changing medications midstream or how to be a big boy / girl when modern medicine isn't jiving with our desired outcomes.

Reflections on turning 46 on August 26th. This is my first birthday since being diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's disease. Here, I write about how it changed me and who I am today as a result of it (the changes I've made and how I play the hand I've been dealt).

In honor of my 8th wedding anniversary, the story of how I learned the custom of wedding gifts and why going to Arby's is now a tradition for our anniversary AKA love is a good thing, and it's even better when it's with your best friend / biggest supporter in the world!

A series of hikes that I took in Pennsylvania (Hawk Mountain, Hawk Rock, Money Rocks) and a day outside with my wife (Longwood Gardens) as well as a hike in Georgia with my wife and her family. The joy of fresh air and exercise!

My frustrations regarding the current administration's handling of all things concerned with the environment / science as well as a connected essay on valuing things and how we show it. Some other issues (healthcare, education) are also touched on. Yes, it's long, but there was a lot to be said.

In life, when someone is diagnosed with a serious condition, that day changes him or her forever. In the military, when a person loses a limb in battle but survives, they call it his or her Alive Day. This essay looks at a mountain climber's "Alive Day" and transitions into Diagnosis Day (a sort of Alive Day) and goes into a feeling of wishing to go back to younger days before everything happened while coping with the issues of life. I hope you enjoy it. If you want, feel free to share your Alive / Diagnosis Day story. I always enjoy reading them.

My trip with my wife to go see the annual Burning of Chambersburg Re-enactment (a Civil War thing in Pennsylvania). Also includes a discussion of my love of history, my interest in writing, and the feeling of understanding our place in the world through understanding the history of all people and times.
