Don Quijote rumbles through my veins. I will stop at nothing to bring justice to people who have been wronged. When the Superintendent of schools fired our deaf ASL teacher for repeatedly failing the English portion of the teacher competency exam, I brewed up a maelstrom of public and media dissent. Teacher retained job, Superintendent went elsewhere.
A similar passion play got choreographed when the School Committee tried to fire a colleague from Barcelona whose jovial and sociable mien got him into scalding water with some tightwads. I’ve been eyeing another ‘windmill’ churning shame, ignorance, and fear about our sexuality in the collective human psyche… My pen is my sword, and with passionate strokes of prose, I banged out The Rejuvenating Power of Masturbation.
I’ve met Betty twice and was radically transformed by her candor, eloquence, spunk, vitality, and honesty. I consider Betty an avatar of the greatest crusaders. I’m getting to know Carlin via our correspondence, her blogs and Youtube clips. This team of intergenerational, sex-positive feminists wields mighty swords and has made meritorious strides in liberating women’s sexuality from eons of repression. To all their tenets listed in theircredo, I declare “right on!” except for one- debunking the myth of love everlasting. I believe love can transcend one lifetime and bond people for eternity. I am deeply honored to be able to contribute blogs and POVs to their awesome website.
Beyond my efforts to educate people about the transformative dimensions of human sexuality, I am a musician, garden artist, teacher, dream explorer, dedicated husband and father, and fitness buff.
