Reading is something I'd miss...

Reading is the only real pleasure i get. My wife would argue that point. She'd say that her regular visits are a pleasure too and, of course, they are. Reading is a good pasttime though, whether it be a book or a blog, because I don't have to answer back. They take you to a world where they don't question you or expect anything from you, except your time and your attention. Blogs are pretty good because you can interact with them. They don't need to know your condition. They just don't care.

Not being disabled is so important. It gives me my life back for a while and allows me to forget how it is now and how it was back then. I'd like to write a book one day. It'd be an adventure and would explore the world which i live in today. I've been disabled for nearly five years now and it's proved to be different to anything i've ever known it could happen. I just don't know.

There are some good blogs and i enjoy reading them. They inspire me to do better things with the time i have left. There WAS a time when i wrote four blogposts a day. Who i expected would read them, i don't know. Getting married has changed my life for the better. I've been with her for twenty seven years this October and we've had our ups and downs.

There's not much i can do since i had the stroke, but reading relieves the boredom i face everyday. And that's a good thing.


  1. Reading is super important to me. I read (too much?) every day. I read for escape, for amusement, for education...

  2. I have nothing else to do. I like the prose of Stephen Leather. He's the best.

  3. You spruced up the blog! It looks great - I like it. I read a lot, too. I probably should read less and move around more, to tell the truth.

    Did you get married recently? You mentioned in a previous post about drinking wine when you got married and how it got you into trouble and it sounded like a recent event. Not meaning to pry, just want to congratulate you both.

  4. Thanks for commenting on the blog. We got married two years ago this month.

  5. Reading is a great pastime. What do you enjoy reading?


I don’t know a lot of things and my memory has seen better times.  We can’t know everything that is going to happen, but everything does fo...
