The Peaceful Pub, Poetry, Prose, Photography and some of the most appreciated readers in the universe. Welcome!
Photographer, writer, gardener, naturalist, hiker, fiddle player, husband, father, goober. I've been away for some time. I suffered first with late-stage lyme disease, a long dark story. Then, in 2012, the trials really began. By 2017, I was completely bedridden for a period of a year. A trip to Mayo clinic changed my life. I was diagnosed with an incurable condition called Central Sensitization Syndrome. Gratefully, it is treatable and those interventions have helped. I had to retire from school counseling, but am able to do most of the things I love on a limited basis. Good to be back!
