I could tell you I’m a real bad-ass because I grew up in Revere, Mass. But that would be a lie.
Since I’ve reconnected with quite a few of my old Revere neighbors of late, it seems appropriate that I feature some of the blog posts that focus on my Point-of-Pines childhood:
THE BRIDGE RATS: The author reviews the imperfections of childhood relationships in search of all his OCD triggers. Along the way, old bullies become friends.
LOST BROTHERS: Remembering Michael S. Brenner, 1966-1984.
MARLEY AND ME: Remembering Sean J. Marley, 1966-1996
ADDICTED TO FEELING GOOD — A LOVE/HATE STORY: The author reflects on some of his dumber quests to feel good.
PEACE AT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME: The author visits an old thinking spot behind a boat yard in his old neighborhood and finds something he forgot about.
