Denial: I have to wonder what this is really all about. Over the decades, as psychology has gone more mainstream, it has infiltrated every aspect of our lives culturally and socially.

What to Look at
It appears even to me, that much of my writing is heavy, and even full of anger. Reflecting upon what this is all about, many things raced through my mind. One is how someone once wrote inspirationally is now turned to a style and focus that has brought attention to bear upon the darker side […]
