Forced to Shut Up and Sit Still

I thought I would start by telling why I chose this title.
All my life, I have been running, always busy and always talking.
In January of 2004, I was diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease. But this blog is not about that; I have a separate blog for that called Living With ALS, which you are welcome to read too.
But since I am now confined to a wheelchair and cannot speak anymore, I have been forced to shut up and sit still, and reflect on my life as a boomer [born June 7, 1955]

I will first open with a paraphrase of a question posed by the John Cusack character in the film "High Fidelity"

WAS I MISERABLE BECAUSE I LISTENED TO POP MUSIC, OR DID I LISTEN TO POP MUSIC BECAUSE I WAS MISERABLE.....

HMMMMMMMMM
