My Bio

I enjoy reading well-written copy as much as the subject it conveys. In my spare time I enjoy going treasure hunting with my metal detector, searching along the beaches and waterfront here in Toronto, Canada.

Having had chicken pox as a child, the herpes zoster goes dormant for years or even decades in the nerves and can later in life become active, causing that burning, stinging girdle or belt-like pattern I am experiencing.
