A rash… Continue reading Bipolar Bankruptcy.

The Bipolar Writer Has Been Gone, and I am Sorry

It has been a while friends, and I am sorry. I was mad at the world. No one in particular, or at some level, I was angry at God. My faith, my foundation, and my life shaken to the core the day my mom passed away on December 15, 2019. The anger I had inside… Continue reading The Bipolar Writer Has Been Gone, and I am Sorry
