I have been writing on and off for about 16 years now.
My 40's Life
My 40’s Life I have written about this briefly at an open mic for the Saskatoon Writers collective but with all the computers I have gone through in the eight years I have been in Saskatoon that piece is gone for good.
I am a very weary soldier. We have been through hell and back these last two interminable years fighting for king and country. Now the war is over, and we are slowly making our way back home. I cannot help but think of a couple of stanzas of the song Going Home.
The unknown condition
I just read the piece What It's Like to be Mentally Ill. Looking at the last 5 years, I know what that is like. When I look back I am aware now that the anxiety and depression have been with me for a least 20 years. I kept telling people this wasn't me that long ago.

Country Music has a always been a part of my life. I regard it as the people's music and it has certainly captured history as it happened.
