The Adventures of Ponyboy is my public chronicling of who I am at any given time. I’m always me. But there are a lot of different sides to me.

There are some huge gaps in what's been happening when. Those are clearly the lowest points.

In the words of a man and now an entire fandom, "Always Keep Fighting." And that's what I do.

For now I live in the Hollywood Hills somewhere near the Capitol Records building. As much as I love listening the traffic on the 101 (no, really, I do) a more transient life calls. It's going to require some serious, and quite frankly scary, downsizing. There is a storage unit in place. Now I just need to get organized and get rid of some of this stuff.

Being a writer, such as I am destined to be, does not necessarily bring home the bacon and most certainly does not fry it up in a pan. Over the years my bills have been paid posing as a ticket seller at Universal Studios, a high school lunch lady, a banker, and currently as a seller of fine fountain pens.

My Sprinter 4x4 is at the Mercedes dealership in Fresno. She’s a 24’ long, high roof custom marvel in metallic dolamite brown. In December, I go to Sportsmobile West to finalize the build and visit Estelle for the first time.

My new home awaits.

Thanks for joining me.
