  • Prisoner Express Poetry Anthology 15

  • Goals for 2015--Review

    1)   Write a book.  As expected, I’ve had the most luck with this goal.  I’m about finished my third, a memoir about my dysfunctional childhood as a misfit.  Early readers compared it to Augusten Burroughs’ and David Sedaris’ work.  I just hope I...
  • America's Got Talent Season 10 - Finale

    Paul Zerdin, the ventriloquist, won America’s Got Talent this year, which is cool.  His act is original, utilizing innovative robotics.  I’m sure his Vegas shows will sell out.   Drew Lynch, the stuttering comedian, took second place.  In my opinion, he got the symp...

  • R.I.P. Gary Salles 1952-2015

    R.I.P. Gary Salles 1952-2015   My best friend and life partner, Gary Salles passed away on Feb. 13, 2015.  He was 63—far too young.  I don’t know the official cause of death, but I’m pretty sure it involved diabetes-related complications, because that’s where...

    I recently received a copy of Transcendent Visions 2015 (see cover image in art gallery), which features an excerpt from my forthcoming memoir Dispatches from the Borderline, which is about my experience in AXIS II, an intensive year-long residential program based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DB...
