What is a Strange Stew?

August 6th, 1996 at 02:20am is the date and time my life changed forever. A long weekend at a now former friend’s seaside cottage in Wallace, Nova Scotia went sideways when I had an accidental fall from a ladder, landed on my coconut and suffered a spinal cord injury. I was 35 years old at the time and have since lived my life the best I can. This blog is my way of sharing some of the experiences, thoughts and challenges I have faced since. The rehab process never really stops, just as one never really stops learning about life. It is what it is. I hope you enjoy reading what I have to offer.

I started out here by posting what was occupying my time away from work, cooking. That is, learning more about the kinds of foods I liked then searching out recipes and tweaking them to suit my own taste. I went on a tear posting recipes almost exclusively.

Fast forward a couple of years of inactivity on my website and I’ve decided to start contributing some of my personal experiences, thoughts and memories. I hope you enjoy what I’m putting out there. Cheers!!
