I am a fifty-nine year old semi-retired teacher and free-lance photographer from Hickory, NC. The events of the past seventeen-plus years of my life have been unlike any I’ve ever seen. Through the turmoil and pain, I have come out stronger on the other side.
One of the best ways to cope with all the changes that have taken place is to write. I write in a journal every day, having filled over 100 volumes over the past seventeen years. I share some of my thoughts on this page so that hopefully others can learn from my experiences.
