UPDATE – May 2019:
To all of my friends here on the blog-o-sphere, I am thrilled to tell you you can now call me by my real name Dwain if you like. Or Professor Taboo, PT, or Prof., they all still work. Whatever pleases you. 🙂 For the very personal update intended for very close friends and close family who are interested, click here.
I am named after my mother’s all-time favorite twangy Rock-n-Roller guitar player, Duane Eddy, while she was up in New York City in the mid-1950’s flying as a flight attendant with Eastern Airlines. His most popular hit(?)… “Rebel Rouser.” I suppose it fits. I am indeed unconventional and march to my own swing beat.

A son, father, former professional teacher (Special Ed), Psych/A&D assessor and therapist, Bohemian, freethinking humanist, unconventional friend, former pro athlete, and fond of all things inspiring. This web blog is a Heart-n-Mind café where friends and other like-minded or somewhat like-minded people visit, take part in discussions (or not) on topics typically avoided or oversimplified, or understated.
The prude is in fact the libertine,
without the courage to face their naked soul. — A.S. Neill
I also have a side few recognize or know about: a darkside in a Dark Art. I do not push it in anyone’s face. I only share my Private blog and posts for those who are very curious, open-minded, of legal age, not easily offended, and who request access to it. I would also show the same discretion in a person regarding this private adult side.
With a background in Psych/A&D rehab and treatment some of what is researched, discussed, and written on my blog and comments will be used for my thesis and Master’s Degree.
FAIR WARNING: You are not going to be able to breeze through my blog and magically or psychically absorb everything; I do not or cannot write or blog in such a fleeting way. If you have only 1-2 minutes to browse, then it would behoove you to move on. Not seeking to make this web blog a marketing cash-cow, win an award for the most visitors, or make anyone smarter and wiser…well, maybe a little the last one…at least for myself *wink & grin*. Hoping hearts, minds, and souls are pleasantly engaged and always expanding while here.
A fastidious person in the throes of conformity is a rich source of suspense. With each throw of the dice or raising of the veil, their beauty I find, arises ironically with our colorful decadence.

Footnote — for those investigative viewers, specifically “faith-followers,” below are my seven combined years of degreed educational institutions, past under-grad and graduate studies, respectively. Yes, as unconventional as it may seem 😛 :
