Every day I see a lot of ugliness in the world, but I see quite a bit of beauty too, in both the simple and the complex. I went through some dark days back in high school, but then one day I fractured my C-1 Vertebra and was only alright thanks to a birth defect. Since I recovered 5 years ago pretty much every day has been a good one.
Hi, I’m Greg, as the name implies. I have ADHD and have gone through a couple of near death experiences (broken neck, nearly bleeding to death in the Massachusetts state police barracks (thats actually a much funnier story than it sounds like), and as a result I think I see the world through a different lens than most people. The same things are there, but different things come into focus.
