I normally blog as The Trash Whisperer (about picking up trash, plus my humorous graphic art), but I felt the need for a purely political and philosophical blog in which to gather the best of my articles (many published on the Huffington Post) about my political and spiritual philosophy.
I am a gay, HIV+, leftist, sober, 53-year old graduate student in the Humanities. My twitter address is @marquismarq. I believe in creativity, spirit, compassion and humor. I love words.
