This “Blog”was started in January 2016 because I thought I was going to die during some gnarly surgery that was scheduled for the following month, which was successfully completed mid-February 2016. I survived. I not only survived, the surgery changed my life, in a positive way. Maybe my stroke in July 2015 also had something to do with my concerns and attitude as well. I never sat down to write before, as it was always thoughts and memories betrayed by the lack of discipline, the desire to write, and without a methodology or manner in which to share my thoughts and opinions short stories, comedy, poetry and other items of interest. My original intent for this website, and my writing, was to use it as a means of communicating with my two “Adult” children, and my grandson.
As I began to write more and more, although I was still doing the “Story Telling” for my kids, I began to also write about many other subjects, one of which is PTSD, both “Childhood” PTSD as I call it, and PTSD that our veterans suffer from the horrors of war. If you suffer from PTSD, depression or other mental afflictions, try writing. Write your thoughts, your experiences, your joy and your pain. Write about your own reaction to whatever you choose to write about. One of my pet peeves is discussing the insane things that governments do to the innocent people of our world. I am against all war, and the military/industrial complex that has our life and death in their hands.
Just write. It has been very therapeutic for me. I invite all to write a post for submission here on my blog. Any subject. The point is to write and allow the process of writing to help you cope. Especially write if it pertains to battling PTSD and coping mechanisms. If you email your suggested post, I will try to set up a separate page for linking to your FB page., not sure how I’m going to structure that into my blog.
As you can see from my counter, I am well over 700,000 visits (from about 157 different countries) since I started this blog in January 2016. Everyday, 60% are “return” readers and 40% are new. I enjoy writing, and I am pleased that all of you keep coming back to my blog, thank you, and thank you to all the new readers.
One last thought. I get a lot of traffic on my website/blog, and because of that, I thought it was time to encourage my friends/readers to visit my other major website www.itad-nao.com. I am serious about what the website says and what it stands for. So, if you arrived on this front page, please take a few minutes and visit The International Tabernacle of Abiding Dudeism as well. Thank you.
My all-time favorite quote of mine: “I’ve been trying to procrastinate all day, but I’m having a hard time getting started”
Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a recent documentary titled, “The World is My Country” Produced and directed by my friend Arthur Kanegis, this documentary is about the courage and beliefs of Garry Davis, who after serving as part of a U. S. bomber crew during World War Two, recognized the insane futility of wars in general, and gave up his U. S. citizenship, becoming the first person to declare the “World” as his “Country”.
You will be touched and hopefully inspired as well, as it is a film of hope and vision. it is well worth your effort. Please share.

This website is not filled with a bunch of “Click-On” ads for the latest in “Toothbrushes” “Fashion” or “Free trips to wherever” generating millions of pesos in income. If you do decide to donate a few Pesos because you enjoy reading my essays, that’s awesome, and I sincerely thank you.
