Falling off the edge


My name is Tucker, I'm a 26 year old male, (just in case that wasn't obvious to you,) I live and work on a Colorado guest ranch known as Lost Valley. Something else you should know about me is that like 14 million other Americans I suffer from a Bi-polar disorder. While I have fought a seeming less endless battle with this sometimes debilitating disease I refuse to let it define me. Something else you should probably know, I have spent most of my life living on the edge, flying by the seat of my pants, walking the tight rope between sanity and insanity and enjoying every minute of it. Occasionally I take a nose dive off of that precariously thin tightrope but fortunately for me I have an amazing support system of family, friends, and doctors who are always there to pick me up.

I have thought long and hard about what I wanted my blog to be about and what I wanted to represent in it and after a harrowing adventure last night I finally reached a decision. I want to share with you the reader, life as I see it. Life with all of its ups and downs, triumphs and defeats, heroics and cowardness, faith and doubt, big and small, and every thing in between. My love for life is only surpassed by my love for God and so with your premission and patience I will also occasionally discuss God as I see Him! I am not a preacher, so I promise I will never preach to you nor try to force you to see things as I see them, I will give you only my opinion on things and you can do with them what ever you choose. Life is fantastic even in the gloomiest of situations. I hope you enjoy reading this blog and my blogs to come.
Until next time, keep smiling and God bless.
