One in ten people are now on anti-depressants in America.I am sure some people really need them so I do not judge them. My life in the arts has been a battle beyond words and there were some serious days in the "art gutter" I always picked myself up and got back in the ring. I always prefered the rawness of life, even if it was painful, to some brave new Soma
Pill reality. No one said it was easy and there were days when a bottle of wine helped forget that I just broke a 25k glass piece on a cement floor...I made it thus far staring down the,sun of reality and I suppose I will bring the ship home in the same manner...awake, aware and ready to box my way out of any corner.

Mr. Halper denies that he had any real hand in starting the protests but I find it hilarious and surreal that a man very close to the origin of these protests (his close friend basically started the movement itself over a dinner conversation) Is a "one percenter" as they call the top income earners and he hangs out with the protesters down in Zuccotti Park. Im not picking a horse in this whole race, I just admire a good dose of Lewis Carrol logic, some true NYC Surrealism...You cannot make this stuff up...By the way, the protesters will be marching to the Upper West Side tonight, maybe he will invite them inside for some bubbly and caviar. Rich guilt?
my info. from this article was gathered from a NY Times article
- "Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
- And can't tell where to find them;
- Leave them alone, And they'll come home,
- Wagging their tails behind them"

"I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defences down
All those wounds that I can't get unwound
I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around "
