Patrick's blog was recently accepted/published by The Good Men Project (GMP) at www.goodmenproject.com. This site consists of essays written by ordinary people struggling with the challenges of daily living. Patrick was introduced to GMP about three years ago while working thru his issues of PTSD and abuse. During that time, he wrote an article (the backstory for this blog, you might say!) which you can read by going to http://goodmenproject.com/families/my-life-as-a-hermit-crab/
(PS Apologies from this editor who cannot' figger out' how to get these links to work?!@# You will have to cut and paste if you wish to read the above stories?!# BOOOOO HISSSS!!)
Patrick asked me to submit his blog to GMP because he was touched by the many stories shared there as well as the caring that humans bring to each other in a community which does not hesitate to discover and uncover the darker side of our condition here on Planet E. Now he asked that I "link" you to their site in hopes that you may discover/uncover more...MORE about your world...your community....your life and its impact on Our world!
