What Parkinson's Disease Feels Like

I don't know about you, but my email is filled daily with email from people who don't know me sending me generic appeals for things in which I have no interest.  So I was surprised yesterday when I opened my email program and found an email from a Website called Townspot. It was written by an actual human who had obviously looked hard for what she was after, and given some thought to what she would say. They are interested in including my videos about Parkinson's Disease on their Website as examples of quality work being done in Anchorage in the video medium.

What? You haven't seen the videos? That's an OUTRAGE! (By the way, how can "enraged" and "outraged" mean the same thing?)  Luckily for both of us, this gives me an excuse to post the videos here. Again.  These are not meant as complaints, (Well, maybe the last one is an exception) merely as descriptions of what it feels like to have this LOUSY, CURSED, INFURIATING DISEASE! Oops, sorry for that little outburst, nothing to worry about. Just a little tear in my cloak of invulnerability. Here, you watch the videos while I go off and patch that. Roll film! ( I am posting two versions, apparently iPad users cannot see the first one. Sorry the second one is cut off, but if you tap on the frame it will take you to YouTube where it willplay full-frame.)

I am proud to be your fellow patient and blogger, Peter. This is extremely well done-- educational, entertaining and really, really true. Thank you! Dan
