    In 2005 I underwent treatment at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota for PTSD, having self-treated the illness since returning from Vietnam in 1968

    I had chosen not to be treated when advances in care became available in the mid 1980's, driven by a need to keep my security clearances in the defense industry. That dilemma is described in my book," Odyssey of Armaments" and is a story for another time.

    This journal has been a powerful catalyst in my recovery. It combines thoughts as I worked my way through a traumatic past with favorite photos of nature taken in my odyssey. The resulting marriage of written word and visual expression permitted resolutions to issues that haunted me.

    The journal is still a work in process but I am out of the darkness and into the light
