  • When Being Social Destroys You

    This is the story of how a recent social event destroyed me. I think my own unmasking as a voluntary aspect, and an involuntary one.

  • When Being Polite Is Merely Superficial

    Sometimes being polite to someone is actually just a way to get them off your back. People are strange. Neurotypical people are the strangest.

  • Aphorisms Of Love: To Find Lasting Relationships, You Must Allow Those That Won’t Last

    A reflection on those relationships that don’t last. I was lucky when I met my ex-wife. It was my first relationship. It lasted 26 years, and our marriage lasted 22 years. It was a “hole in one” so to speak. Mind you, we did have some rumbles during our first year. We broke up four…
