There are some memories that will be forever etched in my brain.My little brother and I always loved to spend time with daddy. My mother hated it. We'd beg and plead. "Please, mama! We want to go with daddy!" We were quite adept at wearing her resolve, and eventually, against her better judgment, she'd consent.Daddy was our hero. Daddy trapped Steven, the 9 year-old neighbor kid who'd touched my privates, under the little house at the back of our property. Daddy cussed out the kids down the…See More

"There are countless ways human beings fail at their goals. Judgment follows and then can fail itself. You've spoken eloquently here of your understanding of that."

"I think when you spend so much time holed up in your room, as he often did, it makes sense that he had so many online/long distance relationships."

"striking to me as the onion is peeled that James had this sort of relationship with so many, and his words written long ago, in most cases, hold so much insight into his struggles and small victories alike."

Like so many writers here, James and I met on Open Salon. After the site went down, we continued emailing back and forth just about every other day.
