The pain can stop, if you just hold on.

Years ago, what seems like lifetimes ago, I tried killing myself a few times. I wanted the pain to end. I wanted the life I had to end. But, what I really wanted was a new life, a different life than the one I had. It's all about change and the choices one must make … Continue reading The pain can stop, if you just hold on.

As I sit here, next to you  I think of all these moments of time. The moments of my life, so long ago. My life was adventurous. My life had promise.

I am an immigrant 

​This is the face of an immigrant. Our family came over from Peru in the early 70's. Like many Hispanics and immigrants, we came over for a better life, better education. All I know is this country.

To Dare

To Dare To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach for another is to risk involvement.

A message from me to you

From Me to You, I first started this book twenty years ago after an incident I’d had with my pimp in Hollywood who had worked the streets for ten years before moving the business in-house.

My grandfather … Continue reading I matter
