Welcome! I'm glad you've made it this far into the site. It probably means that you know me, or would like to know more about me. Either scenario works for me. I hope you enjoy my rants, raves, disappointments, joys, observations, epiphanies, frustrations and triumphs that are all part of this grand thing called life.

    If anything touches you, rightly or wrongly, drop me a line to discuss it. I'd love to hear from you.

"Writing turns you into somebody who's always wrong. The illusion that you may get it right someday is the perversity that draws you on. What else could?"

- from American Pastoral by Philip Roth

When people who can't paint try to paint they can usually step back when they're done, smile a rueful smile, and admit that painting's not their talent. But when people who can't write try t o write they often can't tell they're not good. In fact, they often think they're pretty close to wonderful, and they're genuinely hurt--and often suspicious--when told otherwise.
