In 2014 I completed a full length memoir that pieces together snapshots my own medical journey with the sarcastic, idiosyncratic humor that apparently made it possible for me to get through it.  Also in 2014, I made the difficult decision not to pursue publication until my professional work on the issue had made some headway.

During the years when I was unable to read or write philosophy I focused on poetry, which has always been an interest.  Click the link to read "Waltz for Mind and Body", along with a writerly bio, at Literal Latte.


I am a relentless writer of essays.  Most of these concern the mind and its relation to the natural world.  These are unpublished.

"A profoundly complex concatenation of factors developed, and coalesced, in precisely the manner required to create this circumstance - and this is the case for every circumstance, great and small, without exception.  In this way the world is continually infused with perfection, with goodness."
