Exploring men's issues, masculine psychology, and recovery from abuse via poetry, essay, and art
Best of the Blog
From 2008 to 2014, I regularly posted poetry, short essays, and other writing, as well as occasional bursts of artwork, on my blog, poetry, dreams, and the body. I used a number of expressive modalities (poetry, personal essays, video, artwork, book reviews, etc.) on the blog as means to explore topics such as men’s issues, masculine psychology and the male experience, dreams, creativity, recovery from childhood abuse, and the search for psychospiritual wholeness.
The entire blog (about 350 posts) was lost due to an unrecoverable software error in September 2014, but a thorough sample of my most significant posts has been restored and archived as PDFs below. Click on the titles to view.
