Life Is Worth Living Because...
“Life Is Worth Living Because Of: Kids, Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Sisters, Good Friends, Pets etc… The goose bumps you get when hearing a great song for the first time – and anything else that gives you goose bump or those good kinds of shivers... The pleasures of a good meal – something to enjoy everyday, 3 times a day (or 4….) Those times when you come away from a book, film, song or piece of art feeling somehow moved or enlightened – getting that magical feeling of connectedness to the human condition”
My Story
“After wrapping things up at school with an undergraduate degree in psychology from Carleton University I set off for a bit of fun on a trip to Asia – not knowing at that time that my trip would extend to a decade and more and that I’d find myself a new home country in tropical Thailand

A little bit of teaching soon led to the opening of a small restaurant, which ultimately led to the opening of a slightly bigger one – which I still have to this day. At the same time, also a number of years ago, I started working as a freelance writer, eventually coming to specialize in mental health and addiction writing.

For the last 5 years or so I have authored and researched hundreds of articles and blog postings on addiction and mental health, have authored ebooks on finding care and, for a short time, even ran a free help line out of my own home to answer questions about addiction and treatment and to help people in need connect with treatment they could afford.”
