What a huge gift I have received. I am no longer burdened with the countless commitments and responsibilities of a normal existence in today’s fast paced world. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a lazy person, and I don’t take the tireless efforts of my incredible wife Jen for granted. It is just that I choose to focus on the positive aspects of my predicament rather than the negative. I have more passion for life than I have ever had. The experience is difficult to describe. It is like the scene in “The wizard of Oz” when the picture changes from black and white to Technicolor. I am free to direct my mind in any direction at any moment. I can paint, write, actively listen to music, listen to audio books about any subject that currently interests me, or contemplate the vastness and complexity of our universe. The landscape in my mind is larger and more diverse than the physical world I used to be confined to. I hope it does not appear from the outside that I am losing my sanity. The opposite is true. Every day I have a more complete understanding of what the human spirit is capable of. I feel very lucky.
