Time for all my relatives and friends to purchase the first of the four books in my Autobiography series. “Walk With Dann Collection”
The titles go in this order;
DAMAGED – BANE. – BOON. – UNKZ – A CANADIAN COSMONAUT.
UNKZ was to be the final book of the series but then the cancers came along.
Now, with me working on a real-time account of my life, or perhaps my “Death“, my brain is constantly in battle with my moods and my beliefs. The mind can be a mortal enemy if giving the wrong information.
It is a very emotional book for me to author. Not easy at all. I will come across as a chaotic and eccentric borderline crackerjack. I suspect that I may well be one by next month.
I find it relieving to put my life in type. I want my grand children and their grand children to know who I was. To hopefully trigger in them the Verner stubborn
Sometimes I wish I could just live in one of my books. I would prefer it be my standalone book,
“The Last Canadian Cosmonaut”.
Simple life of a hippie on a Harley simply living a simplistic lifestyle.
So, this how it came to be that I am currently authoring a real time, diary/day planner/patient account of what it is like from the patients view.
I am writing it as it happens or as I am informed of various tests, etc.,etc.
Due to the nature of my life and the chaos of travelling for treatment to three hospitals and having a fantastic Treatment Team of 23 Five Star Medical, Emotional, Surgical and Support Staff keeping me alive, the book itself shall be chaotic and at times perhaps confusing.
I will try to keep it as real as possible while still maintaining the integrity of the process and my story.
I will not hold anything back. Not my tears, nor my joys. I will tell you what I feel or felt through each phase of my battle.
I also delve into the strength the hospital staff must have to do what they do.
After having been in the hospital for 22 of 29 weeks, I have witnessed first hand their anguish, joys and emotional upheavals as they come to work each day and do what they may to ease the suffering we patients go through. Their’s is not an easy life.
We patients are Blessed to live in Toronto and have access to the finest care on this planet.
My other series, “Walking On Dawes Collection“, also teaches us that life was designed to be lived.
Out of respect for Ernest Hemmingway and his works, I decided to entitle it:
“OLD MAN WITH THE ‘C'”
