I’ve always been good with words. Ever since I was a little boy (yes, that’s me!), writing was the way I distinguished myself from the other kids, invariably with an eye toward pleasing my mom. I endlessly sought her love and approval, never realizing that she’d love me even if I didn’t sweat blood for it. And that’s pretty much how I became who I am today. I’ve worked as an editor at Rolling Stone and Men’s Health and have written for such publications as The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, GQ, Men’s Journal, and Antenna. And thanks to my mom, I’ve made several therapists rich beyond their wildest dreams.
Best. Writer. Ever. Period.
Wondering if you attended PS219 in Brooklyn, NY and graduated in 1968….. If so, I may have sat in the desk one seat one seat ahead of you
Guilty as charged.
Loved reading “MAYBE I’M AMAZED”, it put into words how it feels to finally find that special someone later in life! You sound a lot like my fiance…the Best.Year.Ever is so like us too. So I read all your other posts, last post 2013? When are you going to shed more of your words onto these pages?
