How I met Alton

While rehabilitating from my Spinal Cord Injury my attention was drawn by this kid in a wheelchair that was starting a foundation with his own name to make change happen for people with a disability, Spinal Cord Injury specifically. A nurse had mentioned him to lift my spirit. "You're not the only one fighting." She said. And it sparked a bit of hope in a room where hope seemed to be difficult to find.

I want to…; A wishlist.

I want them to learn what happiness is, how to accept it and that they will never need someone's affirmation to dare to say:

I have come from a long journey

I'm a Pirate at 41 and never have I had so many questions, never have I ever wondered, wandered and discovered as much as I do now. In a weird confident way I am doing very well answering questions that haunted me for life.

Where did all this work come from?

I see a world where we are. supposedly, connected, but people are just overwhelmed with questions. The past is gone but left the scars behind for them to carry.

Me too; A confession

I wish I could say I didn’t know better. I wish I had an excuse but all I could say would never take away my mistakes. However, I’m not going to stop there. I have a plan and I’ve been committing to it. I’m going to confess, I’m going to grow and I’m going to educate myself and all men and women, I can see or touch, around me.

Who, What, Why is that The “Recycled” Pirate

I took the little bit of life that was left of me and I went to change it. I had to see everything with open eyes, open mind and a forgiving heart.

I set on a new path of RECYCLING (my) LIFE!

I want to show you my world

I live in the world that I can share and it is magic. I see creations, people standing and applauding. I see people loving and caring. I feel people, and they want to share more but they are lost in a false sense of life. There are no right answers other than the right questions, and those make you challenge you.

A deep intimate connection

I am no saint, nor a hero. I’m far from perfect actually and I’m not afraid to confront myself.

What’s with the Pirate?

My life was a waste. For many years I was ruled by cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, sex, it was all so good but none of it brought me the life I desired. Insecurities, fear and anxiety destroyed hopes and dreams. "They" said I was "up to no good." I was a mess till I lost my life. I didn't die. I could still breathe, but everything else died in front of me...
