Writing has always been a great love and release for me. If I believed in God, I would thank Him now, for the wonderful and challenging experiences He has thrown my way. But I don't. So I won't. All the rest is in my poems, an aborted translation of the new testament, and a currently (May 2016) unfinished biography of my father.


And happy travels.

This comes directly from the heart, no pretence, the person has felt these things intensely, and has spoken with poetic eloquence and insight. It also highlights how destructive addiction can be, and that one should not throw around blame, as we...
