Hi from Maryland. I have found that putting my disturbing memories in writing tends to release them from my head. It is nice to sleep with fewer demons inhabiting my dreams.
I am male, happily divorced, more than half of a century old, retired-twice, presently re-attending college for a degree in Forestry and then planning to pursue a PhD in Psychology sometime before I go to...whatever the next level of existence is going to present itself as. I am not a learned writer, but I am enjoying a Creative writing course in college that seems to have helped with my development and I enjoy learning from all of the writers contributions here.
