About

I grew up in a small, picturesque New England town. I’ve spent some time at sea. I’ve spent some time at war. I’ve been arrested a few times for civil disobedience. I’ve traveled a bit. I met an amazing woman along the way and I now live off the grid with her on a farm in Hawaii with chickens and ducks and cats and dogs and a wise old owl named Owloha.

I write when I need to, sometimes because I enjoy it…mostly just to stay sane.

I can’t just sit down and write, things pop into my head and I write them down. It happens very randomly, oftentimes in the middle of the night, sometimes when I’m driving down the Turnpike, sometimes when I’m on the 6 Train, sometimes when im at the beach…

  1. your letter to the IRS is on point…if i were a U.S citizen i too would be compelled to write something similar….. is it a legal act to donate to the organisations that one chooses ?

  2. Hi Jay .: awkwardly shifting and diverting eyes, like I’m your biggest fan girl:.
    I’ve finally been able to read your writing (like really, without distractions, time restrictions, or guilt. I’m sorry I hadn’t let myself do so years ago). WOW. I knew you had a way with words, but my mind is blown. You have an unbelievable ability to make the reader feel authentic empathy with each piece. I’m hooked. I must admit I’ve seriously been working out ELA skills I haven’t used in years, with the artistic complexity of your structure and content.
    I’m sorry it took so long for me to read, analyze, and compliment! I just wanted to say hi, since candidly and obviously binge reading your blog is quite rude. I do miss you good sir, & and I would love to pick your mind about some of your imagery. Your words are admired and its nice to get a glimpse into your mind.
    Always, Nessa

Still and all, why bother? Here's my answer. Many people need desperately to receive this message: I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone. -Kurt Vonnegut
