Some of you may know1 that before came, a blog that charted the progress of my life in the uncertain times leading up to my life-saving double-lung transplant in 2007.

The old blog was hosted over at ( and served as a way for me to keep a little perspective on the things going on in my life.

Long story short, I’ve migrated all of the old SmileThroughIt archives onto the servers so I have an easy-access archive of my entire blogging life. You can check out the old blog’s archives2 right here.

I’ve just re-read my very first post on the blog and it makes for insightful–if scary–reading. Baring in mind the fact that we all know it ended happily, it’s odd to look back and see just what kind of head space I was in at the time.

Browse and enjoy at your leisure3. The updates on my professional and creative life will continue on this site, business as usual, so you can readily ignore everything on the other page if you so wish.

Happy New Year, one and all – here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011.
