In News & Stuff, The Italian Incident, Uncategorized by David87 Comments

Just a quick note to let you know an unexpected spot has opened for me at The Rehab Centre in Ottawa. It’s a residential thing, so tomorrow I’m moving back to the hospital for the month of August. There they will kick my ass for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Then they’ll let me go home for …

Rio Grande, NM. 2011. Size: 1920×1200 Click the image to access the larger file. What an amazing 3 months. It’s now almost 15 weeks since my accident, and there have been times I didn’t think I was ever going to walk again. I’m still nervous. But I have hope.

OK, New Plan. Part I

In GEAR, Jessie and I, Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Travel by David76 Comments

I think we can all agree that this year went a little sideways. If things had gone to plan I’d have picked Jessie up in Atlanta over a month ago, spun through the Florida Keys, lingered for three weeks, then come up the Eastern seaboard, and back into Canada. By now I’d be heading east toward the Maritimes, finally to …

Recent Interviews

In Life Is Short, News & Stuff, Pep Talks, The Italian Incident by David13 Comments

Over the last week I’ve done podcast interviews with two great guys. The first was with Matt Brandon, a great friend and collaborator. The second was with a new friend, Martin Bailey. Both interviews touch on similar themes and gave me a chance to talk about my accident, the brevity of life, and other topics that gave me a chance …

In Life Is Short, News & Stuff, The Italian Incident by David157 Comments

June 01, Coming home and crawling. On June 01, the good folks at The Ottawa Hospital kicked my ass to the curb, threw confetti in the air and told me to come back some time when I couldn’t stay quite so long. I’d been there for 34 days, and left hospital a full 40 days after the accident. It’s fantastic …
