When I was 59, I was writing my autobiography which I eventually turned into my memoir, Sherry Goes Sane. As I wrote, my favorite songs were playing on the radio, “Bleeding Love,” by Leona Lewis, “Apologize,” by One Republic, and “Viva La Vida,” by Coldplay. The mood sent to me through the catchy lyrics of these songs was electric. The songs were bearing witness to all the pages of my past. The ‘pain’ I was going through, my ‘apology’ to my mother, the high headedness that I ‘could rule the world.’ At times I could laugh at my circumstance but at times I cried. Great adventures and opportunities automatically came my way. I had just survived a knee replacement and my youngest grandson, Jacob was born. Here I am posing for my portrait in my art class in 2008, a great time of my life. My memoir Sherry Goes Sane: Living A Life With Schizo- Affective Disorder can be found on Amazon, CreateSpace,
paper back or Kindle or through Barnes & Noble, Powell’s Books and Central Library downtown Portland, Oregon.
