(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoWhat do you get with a 57 year old balding guy, happy to be with his soul mate, a blended family of 7 adult children, 4 grand children, a dog, a cat, fish in a backyard pond, and horses in our future?  A lifetime of chaos, adventure and love.  Also, we live in Collingwood Ontario, Canada on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay.
My wife and i are both caregivers (I'm a nurse, Neila works with the developmentaly delayed).  We love tto travel and ride horses.
Much of my writing is drawn from life experiences.  I look forward to sharing them with you.  Cheers!  Rick

Recovery and Back to Work

Blog Posted:7/28/2013 5:32:00 AM
I have finished my first week at work in several months and am feeling good about it.  Sorry that I am not on as much and also I do not have the time to individually congratulate winners in our contests.  i just want to say thank you to the whole Poetry Soup Community for playing such a strong part in my recovery.  Without you I don't know what i would have done, especially during those early dark days.
Will try to get on as much as I can, but no promises.  Thanks again.
