March 1st, 2015 Blessing In Disguise

March 1st, 2015 Blessing In Disguise

Two solid workout days in a row! That feels good after a week of sickness and less workouts!

My intention was to be up early this morning and listen to NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday over the air on KOSU. I woke up with the alarm, fumbled with the radio--and after having a few issues tuning it in, decided to go back to sleep and listen online, later. I slept well.

I didn't know how NPR would edit the pieces--or who else would be included, so it was all a surprise to me upon listening. As always; per their usual, they did an outstanding job with the ten minute segment. It was heavily edited, as expected. I don't know how long the others were interviewed, but my raw audio was 36 minutes. I was pleased with the finished piece. You can listen to it in its entirety by clicking the link below:

I extend a big thank you to NPR for including me in the discussion!

I can now say with certainty, I'm feeling 100% again. Thank goodness.

I know I've expressed it before, but it's worth repeating. The entire relapse and regain period was a blessing in disguise. It truly was. I needed to learn more. I needed to experience every bit of that scary ride. I must get started on book number two soon. There's plenty to explore!

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. It's too bad they didn't break up the interview into three separate segments so you could do one by yourself.

    1. Yeah--there was a lot more to be said. It scratched the surface of a few things. A different, long form type program, could go deeper. But for the type and style of segment, it was well produced, as expected! Thank you, Michael!

    2. I thought the piece was very well done, I just would rather of heard nothing but your story for 10 minutes rather than intertwined with two other people. Guess I'm a bit biased, what an I say. :)

    3. I would love to do a deeper story. There are so many facets to it all--it seems a bit of a tease to simply scratch the surface... You know it and I know it--plenty of others who have been where we are, know it... This journey, for most of us, can't be summed up in small, neatly edited actualities. You're biased--and I appreciate your bias! Thank you, Michael.

  2. Looking forward to listening! Your hard work and accomplishments are truly inspirational!

    1. Thank you, Alati! I hope you had a chance to listen! I appreciate your encouragement!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
