Western North Carolina, USA

I am a retired mental health professional, having worked in SMI Case Management, Crisis Services, and Substance Abuse/Addiction Treatment. I retired in 2006 to become the primary care giver for my father who then was then beginning to suffer from dementia until Dad died in late 2013. Prior to getting into mental health work I held many different jobs including cab driver, toy maker, welfare case worker, and others. I am an Army veteran of the Vietnam conflict. Looking back on my 70 years I like a quote from a line from a song,”What a long, strange trip its been.” Looking forward, from another poet, “Where to? What next?”
