 About the Book 

Someone just like me is out there who wants to know she/he is not alone in feeling like the outsider...so far outside of the box...a box that you didn t know existed until one day it hits you like a brick.

No, youMoreSomeone just like me is out there who wants to know she/he is not alone in feeling like the outsider...so far outside of the box...a box that you didn t know existed until one day it hits you like a brick. Actually, no, it doesn t hit you. No, you run into it...run right into the invisible outside brick wall of the box. And you re like, What the frick?! You feel like an idiot for running into something, like tripping on the sidewalk and looking back to see what that heck made you jerk forward so hard while everyone else is laughing. Do you know what I mean? I gotta believe there is one person out there in our seven-billion-person-world (or so) who gets that. Now, mind you, this box wasn t placed there intentionally to make people miserable and excluded. No...I m convinced it started with good intentions, but we all know where those get you, right? I m telling you, that s the one piece of wisdom that never made much sense to me as a kid. But, Holy Crap, it certainly does now. Many a road to our personal Hells has been paved with the ever well-meaning GOOD INTENTION. It s one sneaky, little, seductive force too, used for eons as the excuse for something that has clearly gone astray from the original intent. For example, many of our society s traditions supposedly celebrate love. A noble idea. I m all for love. But these traditions developed into really limited acceptable formats...you know...concrete categories of love and rankings of love...like one form of love is somehow greater than another. And it was a slippery slope from there...
