Respect. Peace. Freedom. These words are easy to throw around – I’ve done it. But I still know their weight when it counts. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great man who stood up and spoke against the status quo. He challenged the ‘ways things were’ and dared to dream of something much better. A […]


I have a tendency to fall victim to the most prevalent diseases in the Western world: I am ill of want. I’ve got a case of the “Gimme Gimme’s”. The moguls of media have me dead in their sights and have hit me with a barrage of advertisements that me sick of the things I have, and […]


Today, I want to build something, and I hope I can take you with me. I’m not manic or even hypomanic, but rather, I feel like I just took my first breath of free air since this long depression has been holding me down. I want to build something now. A mood. A thought. And […]


“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more” – Shakespeare, Henry V Act 3, scene 1 Once, and many more times. For people with mood disorders: What battle do we wage? What foe do we face? What are we armed with? Will we win? What Battle do we wage? What foe do we face? […]

If we worshiped Roman Gods, we would be celebrating and making tribute to Janus – He is the god that we get the ‘January’ from. He is double-headed and looks both […]


I was told by a wise old friend that Peace is the only thing worth seeking and working for. The statement is brilliant in that it can be applied in both a bigger, more vague sense, as well as a specific answer to individual problems. When you are wondering what you want to do with your life (a rather big […]


If you are like me, you need to set a reminder to forgive yourself. If you are like me, you get too caught up in getting everything done, and done right, that you don’t give yourself room to be wrong or to come up short – you don’t give yourself permission to be human. Forgive yourself this […]


Betrayal

11Dec12

Betrayal . . . Betrayal is powerful. It cuts deep and leaves wounds that never heal. For people with hidden disabilities, their limitations can be pressed and pushed and bent leaving the person bruised, broken, and feeling betrayed by those who offend. More often than not, the offender has very little idea they have wrought such horror, […]


First off, I’d like to say thanks for coming to this page. I truly hope that you can get something out of it and I can help. Intro: I am a Dad first, a husband second . . . and then after many other things, I have bipolar type II. I am an explorer, a […]
