You never know where life will take you.
When I was diagnosed with Parkinson's I was upset. When I was further
diagnosed with LBD Parkinson's, I was devastated. This atypical form of the
disease is more degenerative and has been forecast to shorten my life
significantly. That was just over two years ago. Thanks to family, friends
and colleagues, the services of CCAC, and many amazing doctors and staff,
including staff at Toronto Western's Mobility Disorder clinic and
Sunnybrook, I have been able to retire with some grace from the work I
loved as a Superior Court judge.
I am now finding pleasure and purpose through a renewed focus on
painting. Entitled "Chasing Monsters", this series captures the intensity of
my daily life: hallucinations, erratic memory, and generalized physical
discomfort...interspersed with many moments of joy and personal growth
in directions I have never before experienced.
