Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. More sadness than horror in your story, Mark. I couldn’t help thinking that we humans are all fast becoming empty shells like Nick in a world where the vast majority of our species are disposable.

  2. This story was painful to read, truly horrific.

  3. Nothing to compare to a football game. I agree with Liz. It was just too painful a story. I imagine that even at that time of the year too many of those stories could be told.

  4. Many Psychiatrists have no idea what it is like to be depressed. Most of them are scornful instead of being empathetic. However, patients have to go to them. There is no alternative. A well-written story. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks, Nightlake. Points well taken. If mental health professionals were required to take ECT in med school, they would have a different perspective, I’m sure. ECT is a last resort in most cases and many people have improved as a result. ( Just to keep a balanced perspective). Thanks again for your comment.
