"May you have an interisting life." is an ancient curse.

I was raised on the Confederated Salish and Kootani Indian Reservation in Western Montana. I joined the Army when I was 18 and became an intelligence analyist. I went to schools in the south, and in Arizona before I was stationed in Texas and joined a Pentecostal church. I spent a year in Korea. I got out of the army for two years and starved. I went back in as a desiel mechanic. I was stationed in Texas, and served in Iraq. I got out again and worked for government contractors. I buckled under the constant strain of being so close to the "war machine" and fled to quiet cool Oregon two years ago where I stayed with my brother on a houseboat on the river before I got my own place in the city.

My soul feels worn out. I write to escape, not to confront reality.
