It’s been the best of times and it’s been the worst of times. So I take you on an unforgettable roller coaster ride, it is my life as a mental patient and philosopher of sorts. God has taken the edges off my anger and sorrows, like the stone I once sculpted I’ve been chiseled down and hopefully made more beautiful. My trust is with him. I’ve been honed down so much I now can see beauty in the dust of a sun-ray and find peace in a rose petal slipping through my fingers. I was battered as a new born child causing me to have many dysfunctions. With my imagination, wit, and stout heart I found ways not only to survive but to enjoy life, if you enjoy seeing an old twisted healthy tree, you may enjoy my story, The Upper Room with a View. To see out my window I must bend and focus away from the dumpster to seek the beauty of the lake and mountains. In God I have trusted and been rewarded with a rich life of abundant love, great appreciation for his world and the creative life within it.
