Welcome to My Neck of the Words

I’ve been entertaining my shadow-self since I was 14. 38 years. The majority of my life. Seems like I would be used to it by now. But I’m not, and I hope I never will be. 

As a matter of fact, the more complicated life gets (and we are on a roll lately), the more challenging it is for me to navigate my darker side. 

No matter how many depressive episodes I’ve beaten, no matter how many self-help books I’ve read, no matter how much the how-to’s make sense it’s a different experience every time.

Welcome to my story. My Neck of the Words. This is me and my story, splashed across words and books and pictures and art. Pull up a seat and stay awhile.
