A JUNE 2, 2019 UPDATE:
After 17-years of anonymity under an alias of Professor Taboo, I can FINALLY disregard any probability of having my Visitation rights suspended or taken away from me and/or my Child-support unreasonably raised by connections of me to this blog. This past March my youngest, my son turned 18-years of age. The Texas Attorney General’s Office legally notified me in mid-May to “Please stop sending us your monthly child-support payments. We are trying to permanently close your case/cause #.“ How many divorced Dad’s get THAT sort of notice from the Texas OAG?
With this official notification the only way my WordPress blog-content and topics could be used against me to deny visitation with my kids or further exacerbate my monthly obligations/struggles caused by this office, Texas Family Law, Texas Labor Laws, and by my kid’s mother is to sue me, take me back to court. A very expensive, exhausting process with no guarantees. I cannot tell you all how ELATED I am this day has finally arrived! Seventeen years.
Now I have nothing to hide about who I really am and proud to be. All of it within my legal rights as an American citizen — barring any number of insane Texas state laws or provisions. Hah! If anyone understands the centuries old fight for “state’s rights,” you know what I am referring to.
To all of my friends here on the blog-o-sphere, you can now call me by my real name Dwain if you like. Or Professor Taboo, PT, or Prof. still works. Whatever pleases you. 🙂
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. 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 the Private blog and posts for those who are interested and request them as I have and would also do in person regarding this private adult side.
Some of what is researched, discussed, and written here 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.
