For many years, the only reading I did was technical manuals. The past few years, however, my passion for reading has returned. My passion for writing has returned, as well. For too many years, each time I began to write a depression would overtake me that forced me to stop. The only things I seemed to be able to write about were very dark images in my head.

Many things have changed these last few years. I now realize those things can remain back there and I can remain in the present moment. I can write about some of them now in hopes my own struggles might help someone else step out of the dark a lot sooner than I did.

In the meantime, my life is better than it’s even been. Life has been a roller coaster, but I’m finally beginning to enjoy the ride.
