Through personal experiences I show you how to turn challenges into accomplishment, how choices, not circumstances, determine achievement and how to appreciate our differences instead of judging them. I am also from the future as you can tell from this photograph.
I lived an unconventional life and through these stories my hope is you see that life is good regardless of whatever challenge you face. My groups hve been as diverse as doctors, prisoners, researchers, little old ladies in rural churches across New Jersey. My biggest audience has always been students and the LGBT community.
I have been arrested for obscenity, (doing a condom demonstration). Competed in a marathon at 200 pounds, dealt with alcoholism, lived with two terminal illnesses, worked as a dominatrix and had loads of fun with dating, marriage, divorce and financial ruin. And was still named Poet Laureate and given an honorary PhD from Albright College.
I eventually landed on a remote island in the Caribbean to become a successful painter and then on to the mountains of Central Mexico rescuing dogs and stray burros. People have called me unstoppable and outrageous, then called a cab. I also have a broken pussy and need to talk about it.
