Wisdom and photos from Fred

I really love hearing from you guys.


Recently, I got a Newletter reply (which always gets me excited to begin with) full of kind words, hope, and so many beautiful photos of another TMFRs outdoor adventures.


With his permission, I had to share.


Please take a look at the fine photography of Fred. The beauty of his shots and his encouraging words about complex trauma recovery might brighten your dark, disastrous day.


Meet Fred!




Wisdom and photos from Fred



My trauma and subsequent journey started 58 years ago in utero and took me to unimaginable places and decades of re-traumatization and self destruction before anyone ever mentioned PTSD. 


I'd like to say that was a turning point but it wasn't - just another point on the graph of my trajectory, there was plenty more pain ahead.


What I wanted to tell you is that it is possible to heal and find peace. If someone had told me that even five years ago I would have told them to fuck off it will never end.

How did it end? I'm not sure, but between thrashing about and finding the pieces of the puzzle it all came together. It's worth it.


Nature has definitely been a part of my journey also music, art, books, spoken word, cinema and architecture, all being forms of expression. They help me connect to humanity and the divine including my own which were missing at times on my journey.


They often require me to be quiet and still inside to feel them.


Other times they are loud and require me to feel at the other extreme. It is nice to have range of sensitivity not just rage or sorrow with little in between.
