Remember your Roots

In my latest Blog post I discussed “the things that I’m most grateful for from 2021”. However, soon after posting the piece, I realized I made a grievous omission, which I intend to now add to the long list of things I’m grateful for. I can’t believe that I forgot to include my Parents. SomeContinue reading “Remember your Roots”


Today is my 42nd Birthday. Which means my age is now the same as the answer to: “The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.”  For all you Douglas Adams fans, you recognize this from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. In the book, “42” is given to scientists by the super computer “DeepContinue reading “42”

Charitable Giving

For some time, I have grappled with something. I know that I’m a fortunate individual. It makes me want to give back. But how? For starters I owe nothing less than being the best husband, father, friend, and colleague that I can be. While this goes a long way towards making the world a betterContinue reading “Charitable Giving”

Vivek Puri

Vivek is one of those “first to meet you” individuals. More than just a social butterfly however, Vivek has a lot of insightful things to say. Lucky for us, he’s eager to help other People with Parkinson’s (PwP) avoid some common pitfalls. Also, he’s competitive, fun, and just an uplifting dude. I recently got aContinue reading “Vivek Puri”

The Privileged Parky

Many people on this earth are struggling. It could be your neighbor, your friend, your co-worker. It could be you. Yes, there are so many people that have difficult lives. I am not one of them. I’ve done nothing extraordinary to deserve this comfortable life. I’ve worked hard. But so have so many others. I’mContinue reading “The Privileged Parky”

Non-Parky Perspective

This is mostly satire. But there definitely is some truth to this. Also, the events I mention did happen. However, I actually have no problem with the vast majority of people Parky or not. I’m going to be a little hard on a few of you non-Parkies* tonight. I’ve got a bone to pick withContinue reading “Non-Parky Perspective”

The Middle-aged Newbie

When it comes to my career, I’m a bit of a late bloomer. Early on in my career, while my peers were busy getting good at what we do I was busy wondering what the f*** was wrong with me. Spells of wonky walking, stiffness, coming up short on words, frustratingly slow thinking, awkward timing,Continue reading “The Middle-aged Newbie”

Have you ever

I wrote this poem tonight for my fellow humans. All of you. I felt a little bit unsure about a few things and it made me wonder if I’m the only one. I doubt it, but I had to ask… Sometimes I wonder if my motives are badrepresenting myself as one so very strongbut thenContinue reading “Have you ever”

Parky Persistence

Here I recount the events from a day that took a little persistence to see something through. Persistence despite living with a chronic illness. I’ve been living pretty hard lately. I offer this story to say that despite Parkinson’s, it IS possible to live fairly intensely. As for how long I can keep this up?Continue reading “Parky Persistence”
