E 9

my life is not always poetry it can be formulated as, i guess the straight facts are this :
1) born 1961
2) i graduated high school 1979
3) worked 28 years pursuing the 'American Dream' until I achieved a nice house in a nice small town with two nice children that i'd put through college, a devoted wife of 25 years, my own moderately successful small business (automotive repair), three cars in the driveway and...


4) i was absolutely fucking miserable and didn't know why.
5) i walked away from all of it, gave it away. (2007)
6) spent 7 years 'finding myself' (low-income jobs/vagabonding/short stints of homelessness)
7) discovered 'Art' and started selling what i made (2014)
8) and am now living a life of intentional impoverished minimalism so that i have time to pursue what i've come to understand as my Life Purpose, to make Art.
