Industry Communications or Media
Occupation writer/gardener or gardener/writer
Location In plain sight, everywhere, United States
Introduction I'm an unknown writer, retired; FIU grad--school of journalism/mass communication. Despite sending off scores of resumes, I never worked for any mainstream media organization. Supporting myself through a variety of low wage jobs, I understood at a young age that I was a wage slave. I wrote a book about it: Diary of a Wage Slave; it resides on a flash drive, unknown like its author. Never made much money but donated what I could at times, and threw myself into activism at other times. This blog will not be monetized. If you like what you read here, please consider making a donation to a righteous cause. Charity Navigator is a good place to look for one. No fiction here; all writing copyrighted 2006-2016.
