Thanks for visisting my website richard e ward.com and welcome to my blog. I am Richard E. Ward. I am a blogger, I write, I am an artist of sorts, an author and the publisher of Tydbyte Media.
As a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Survivor since 2000, I have had many struggles. But then, who hasn’t had their own struggles in life. I also survived a heart attack in 2004. Notwithstanding the ups and downs of my life here on Earth I have been sober since 1991.
As a TBI Survivor, as the years go by, I am coming to appreciate more and more the expression:
“Be practical & expect miracles, if you just take the first step forward every day.”
Taking the first step every day can be so difficult when your TBI mind often wanders around, from one thing to another, like a young child.
I was born on February 20, 1948. Attending McGill University and Concordia University in Montreal resulted in 3 partial degrees (Commerce, Theology & Communication Arts).
I can’t claim to have had a career. Rather I have had a wealth of eclectic and varied life experiences.
I have been recording the experiences and people that have had a significant influence on life in my Points of Reference and my Teachers, Guides and Mentors and the people, places and things that interest me in Richard’s Directory.
My first job was as a Milk Boy delivering dairy products on Saturday when I was in grade 4 (Man, that was fun!).
My life experiences have included bouncer in a Montreal bar, special assistant to a federal cabinet minister, communications consultant, IT headhunter, government relations consultant, green chain hand in a lumber mill, life guard, co-owner of a holistic healing centre, swimming instructor, personal coach, federal, provincial & municipal campaign advisor and manager, public relations consultant, publisher, reiki practitioner, tour guide, salesman, shamanic practitioner, software developer, web developer, writer & author.
I have an abiding interest in Chinese culture and all things Chinese. Although I was scheduled to go to China in 1977, I first visited China in 2009 and lived in Beijing, China in 2011 & 2012 and visited Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Kunming, Urumuqi, Wuhan and Yantai.

Sounding Board & Counsellor
As a Sounding Board & Counsellor I work with a few clients in the hope that I will help them to achieve their goals, or maybe define their goals and gain new perspective on life or perhaps help them find the job or career of their dreams. The beauty of modern technology is that I connect with clients around the world and in different cultures.
