    I’ve made major strides over the past half-year or so, and it feels like I’m a new man. People always tell you how this or that is the best thing ever, but you can’t really know until you go through the experience yourself.

    It took Barry many months to make it to the top of the attic steps. Always before his fear of darkness and heights combined to hold him at bay.

    The road was slick with rain. This came as a surprise, because leading up the slope of the hill the tarmac was dry and dusty. This is why Robert felt safe with the odometer pegged at 120. Of course, the […]
