I’m making a few changes to (hopefully) uncomplicate certain aspects. There are two things in particular on which I’m focused. First, streamlining communications with me and, second, how to change my day-by-day living. The latter is available because I believe Ryan is physically stable; in a medical sense, that is.
- I permanently shut down the text/telephone number, 571-305-2662, that was set-up several years ago (2012, I believe).
- The public Facebook Page Ryan’s Rally: We Got This will continue operation, but my personal Facebook account is inactive; to include messaging and posting. If my life ever changes, I might begin using it once again.
- If you wish to contact anyone in my family, please use the email firstname.lastname@example.org. By sending a message to this email it will reach multiple people in my family.
To summarize, email is now the ONLY way to reach my family. This just seems to be the easiest method.
In another effort to “simplify”, I intend to take Ryan to our family’s cabin in West Virginia on an extended (perhaps even semi-permanent) basis.
I’ve actually been kicking this around for a while.
I keep asking myself if there is a compelling reason(s) not to take him there? I wonder, what is keeping us here?
It’s not my family. My daughter, Kari, has begun building her own life. My wife, Sue, must travel so often that she is typically away on business for five days each week.
It’s not friends. Sadly, people have moved on in their lives and we don’t benefit from the local support we once experienced. I, solely, take the blame for this. The fact is, there is too much preventing me from being a true friend with people. I’d even go so far as to say that by trying to build personal relationships it eventually harms me and those involved.
It’s not fair to anyone.
In the scheme of things, most people will not notice any difference based on where I physically put myself. Mainly because I’ll keep an online presence on Ryan’s Facebook Page and this website (ryansrally.org); to include Ryan’s Wish List. I hope to keep myself accessible — albeit, more streamlined — by whittling down direct communications to email, exclusively.
