I'm a young man in an old man's body, trying to catch up to myself, trying to find pieces of me I left back in a disconnected youth and the early years of manhood. I'm a stereotype of many in my generation who can play the 'blame game'. We are the sum of all the scary kid-emotions we experienced, the gin mills, piano bars that became our sandboxes of pleasure - lotus eaters of the worst kind, the love affairs that did not quite settle us down, the poetry & songs written in bars and motels along the way. A Dreamer! A Wanderlust! The world needs such fools as we to write our books, poetry, songs, to offset the madness that plagues the soul.
