Thanks For All The Fish!

Hey there, strangers!

I wish I could say that I’m adding this post because I am, at long last, returning to blogging here at Fish & Bicycles.

I really do wish I could say that. I miss it terribly.

Sadly, my life path has taken a rather unfortunate turn.

In July 2018, just a few months after my last post here, I was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, aka ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

I remain proud of the work I did here, but mostly it was a heck of a lot fun, a great vehicle for maintaining a regular writing practice, the birthplace of my photography pursuits (posting now to my Instagram account), and an occasional outlet for venting about politics.

Alas, the past year and a half has been pretty much all-consuming, and it’s just not in the cards for me to return here to blog.

That said, I HAVE been writing. In fact, I’m nearing completion of the first draft of a memoir that will provide all the details of my journey since diagnosis, it will be published right here on WordPress.com, and I will return to Fish & Bicycles one last time to add a link to the memoir.

Update – 1/15/2020: My memoir is complete and now accessible online:

I, Too, Heard The Owl

Thanks!

One thought on “Thanks For All The Fish!

  1. I am only just catching up with this and it is absolutely heartbreaking to read. I loved the interaction we had when we were fully engaged with out blogs. I too was absent from my blogs for a very long time but just from laziness. I am doing a 366 ( leap year) again. The last was unbelievably in 2012! Off to your other blog now.
