Great stuff Mike. I’ve lived 26 years with one-arm and chronic pain. Life can be challenging… obviously. I’ve only ‘discovered’ Stoicism in the last six months and it has been the best tool I’ve added to my toolkit in about 20 years, and I have studied many different things over that time.
Anyway, I *really* liked the comments about the sea. His story sounds fascinating, look forward to devouring it.
