About the Author
Michael is a gentle old soul with a heart of gold and a very rich diamond mind. He's been around and around, just won't go away. If you have a hungry mind, he'll feed you well, just read his stories and they will tell. Everything is worn and torn on this old blind man, except for his imagination! Michael is friendly, he is kind and still learning how to be somewhat refined. Take him with a grain of salt and a pinch of gold because he's really on his way to getting old. He's had a rough life, full of strife with many go-rounds and still he lives without a frown. Sure thing, life has taken its toll, but this man named Michael is a special soul with lots of life and a mysterious role ! Michael has had the misfortune to lose most of his sight over the years and is now settling down to publish a few of his adventures in this life. Michael has been a story teller, a researcher, a self-published author, an artist, a public speaker, a traveler and an adventurer. He has had the opportunity to travel to over 40 countries. He lived in the Hawaiian Islands for several years and had the opportunity to sail into the South Pacific for a nine month adventure. There he was shipped wrecked and nearly lost in strange shark infested waters! He also lived in the Amazon jungle, 300 miles from the nearest city, while attempting to begin a coffee plantation in green hell. Michael has been mugged, waylaid, robbed and lost in dark places but lived to tell the tales. He has visited and traveled through Australia on long stays over a period of several years, lived in his own stone hut on the Red Sea, traveled across the mid-east in the heart of winter and survived to tell the story. An old time, on the road hitch-hiker, with a thousand strange tales. His mountain excursions into the Himalayas and treks across India and his extended life in Goa, Armenia and Russia have added many aspects to his repertoire of medleys. He was a shepherd for a time, a logger, a woodcrafter, and a very incredible landscape-gardener. There is more, but all this was done with the title of being legally blind. Yes, there are some really good stories to tell and we hope the readers from young to old who might be looking for something just a little different, will come to know this old time author. Michael will now begin an effort to share some of his adventures both in life and through his insightful experiences.
