Sleep Walking Out of Afghanistan: Walking It All Back

I found myself caught in the middle of the biggest vehicle explosion to ever hit Afghanistan. While dealing with injuries and destruction my mind kept spinning out of control from horror to horror to my dysfunctional past. I did my best to replay my personal ordeals and the reactions of the people around me as accurately as possible. The journey starts out in a tropical country of Thailand where I was living a carefree life with no worries or drama. By happenstance I came across another retiree (Dylan) that took advantage of my drunken state while easily coercing me to dive into my life’s history. It was a life that I buried deep below the surface away from my kids, my family, my friends, my co-workers, and mainly myself. Each story is sure to affect you differently than the previous one. Dealing with what I had viewed as an imminent death helped to bring closure to where I was once open and exposed. The book touches on the sad, the shocking, and the schizophrenic behaviors that surrounded me until later into my adulthood. I tried to ratchet down those experiences with my sense of humor and creative out-takes. You are guaranteed to read this book over and over again! You may find yourself identifying with many of the events or characters. But undoubtedly, some of the stories will stick with you like nothing you have ever read or ever heard of before.

About the Author

What happens behind closed doors truly is only known by the ones behind those doors. My story, I’m sure, is the same as many others, yet known by very few. My quiet, mid-western life in small town, USA, now consists solely of peace, happiness and true love, thanks to my wonderful family and the few friends I have left.

Paper Roses

Growing up we learn that there is no such thing as the boogie man. We learn that shadows will not hurt us. We learn not to be afraid of the dark. We learn not to talk to strangers. We spend years looking under the bed and in the closet, just to see there really are no monsters there. We also learn that love is a good thing. Love brings us together. Love protects us. Love is where we want to be. Sadly, we also learn, not everyone is taught the same way. Sometimes all those demons do exist and sometimes hearing “I love you” should make you turn around and run away.
