Why this blog?
Well, why not? Friend and loved ones say I can tell stories well. They can be funny sometimes, compelling, and probably boring. Maybe all three at once. I don’t want to be an expert in my subject(s). And I don’t want it to be too busy. I’m not going to write every day. (I’m amused that, while I use Twitter or Facebook very sporadically, virtually hundreds of people are following me. (well, no. not really))
I think I’m a fairly organized person – still living by the old Boy Scout motto of “be prepared”. That stands me in good stead now, as various complications impel me to be as organized as possible
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1995. Since then, the disease has worsened to the point that I use forearm crutches to move about. I often use a wheelchair. I said this blog wasn’t going to be about one thing. However, I have several writings that discuss MS, so I’m going to – at least initially – leverage off of them until I find my voice.
