consciousness. Again, I am alone in my room.
Again, I begin the slow journey from zombie-dead mind to floating
muddled self, grasping for airborne memory pieces to glide me down to earth,
the wind blown white parachutes of dandelion seeds looking to latch themselves
to secure soil.

Mosaic # 18 Comic Actor from Lackawanna
(imagination)…reveals itself in the balance or reconciliation of opposite or
discordant qualities: of sameness, with difference; of the general, with the
concrete; the idea, with the image; the individual, with the representative;
the sense of novelty and freshness, with old and familiar objects; a more than
usual state of emotion, with more than usual order…
Coleridge, Biographia Literaria

BACK COVER: BOOK SUMMARY
The true struggle of a steel-city,second-generation working-class youth growing up Polish, Catholic and Bipolar in Lackawanna / Buffalo during the mid-20th Century becomes the journey of a perpetual underdog.
Even the breakdowns morph into an underdog brotherhood. In Buffalo, the manic outburst of a comic of Jewish origins (Lenny Bruce), and in New Orleans, the punching frenzy of a black boxer (Muhammad Ali).
The book's title traces back to shooting a game of pool out West with Native Americans, a primary underdog.
In 52 stories and 29 works of original art and photos, BIPOLAR BUFFALO, a powerful, creative and moving story that gives life to your spirits and embrace your heart and mind is dramatically revealed.
