Make me Laugh

When I look back on my earliest posts 7 – 8 years ago I notice a couple of things. First, I notice how dramatically better my writing is today compared to back then. I guess writing for 8 years helps one to hone their craft. The second thing I noticed that bothers me more than […]


Despite my horrible memory, I can easily recall the loneliest moment of my life. It was the afternoon of September 28, 2003 in Studio City, California. It was my 40th birthday.

Creativity, Bipolar and Genetics

A link between bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and creativity. We’ve all heard about the likely connection dozens of times.
