Living with a couple of different chronic illnesses has been an everyday part of my life forever. But it hasn’t been easy.

This blog often pairs my struggles and occasional insights with images. Sometimes they are photos of paintings I’ve done. Or photos I’ve taken because the subject matter has struck me in a certain way.

When I begin a new essay, or a new painting it’s like I’m beginning a journey that brings me a few steps closer to self-knowledge, and self-acceptance.  This makes me feel productive. It also takes some of the sting away from the emotional and physical pain that burdens me.

When what I learn from my life experiences helps to inform readers of mine in regards to their own sorrows, it is a tremendous victory for me. So, I hope that what I share here impacts your life in a positive way. No matter how small.
