DOWN-TO-EARTH GUY

Hi, good day to you!

I will do my best to describe myself as accurately as I can. My name is Todd, and I live with
Ataxia type 8 and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Ataxia is a genetic condition that affects my balance,
timing, and (to a far lesser degree) some of my finer muscle control. I am still the same guy
inside, as Ataxia does not in any way affect my intellect or thinking.

I was raised in Monroe, back when it was very small. I loved both my mom and dad, but both
have passed on now. I am an only child, as my older brother died at birth. I went through
school in Monroe, then later graduated from a local college, after getting a GED, as I
dropped out of high school.

Today, I am probably one of the most easy-going guys that you will ever meet, both very easy-going and very honest. I am EXTREMELY down-to-earth, maybe even to a fault. I could also be described as a simple man, simple, but not in a financial way, as money and good credit are mine, but only to help me through life, and are never my goal. I am truly thankful for what I have, My only two aims in life are charity and romance.

I have two kids, both live locally. They mean everything to me. I am retired now, but had a fun career in the Electronics/Computer Science field. I now mostly spend my days playing and writing music (which I am NOT very good at, but it is just for fun). I also enjoy helping others when I can, hiking, gardening, volunteering, or just watching TV. I guess I am in great shape for 60, except for Ataxia and Arthritis. Oh, I almost left this out, I bring no baggage, drama, illegal drugs, or addictions with me.

Since who we are inside is what matters most (to me anyway), here is a quick glimpse of my feelings in the words of a song that I recently wrote about the way I see life. I have included this song (poem) here, because it reflects my inner feelings. I guess it is the only song about my feelings that I ever penned, as I tend to write love songs.

----- NOTHING LEFT TO PROVE -----

Time went by so slowly
in the days when life was new
The road went on forever
beneath a sky of blue
Now it's half a lifetime later
I'm alone like I began
Eternity looms larger now
for I'm now an older man
~~~
And I have nothing left to prove
and nothing left to hide
nothing left to lose
but this emptiness inside
Never liked head games and such
honesty speaks out
If I can't do things honestly
I guess I'll do without
~~~
Life should be about my kids
my sweetheart, and our friends
It took this long to figure out
now I hope life never ends
So please come and take my hand
join me for all time
Together we will find our way
we'll find the perfect rhyme
