This is the memoir of Bruce Lippert, a prominent biochemist, husband and father, who lived an active, engaged life; whose work and interests took him to live and do research in many cities and many... More > countries. But he is also someone with what he describes as a “time bomb” in his brain and spine. He has MS. It is a story that moves from a time when he was young, active and strong, and enjoyed hiking, camping, and extensive travel, up to today, where he lives in a nursing home in Brookline, Massachusetts, unable to move anything below his shoulders. But it is not a tale of sorrow or grief, but one of resilience and stamina and even humor.
