This book chronicles, through pictures and selected journal entries, some of the events and locations that I have come to believe collectively represent the mythical door that opened for me when all others seemed to slam shut. I wrote this book to remind myself of the journey, and mark the place in time, when I reached the summit of my ordeal and looked back, not as I began, with anger and confusion, but in recognition of how far I had travelled and how much I had learned.
I worked in law enforcement for 22 years doing crime scene investigation and forensic analysis. I now work for the military doing Forensic Intelligence and Fingerprint Analysis. Photography is still something I do for fun and occassional profit.
