The Man Behind The Blog

The Man Behind The Blog

Pain goes in, love comes out.

A childhood watching the abuse of my mother, followed by my father dying in my arms, then, years later, repeating the experience with my mother. Not long ago, I fell down a flight of stairs, got up and walked away. Excruciating pain has been my loyal companion ever since.

After suffering so much pain and loss, many would turn to alcohol or drugs, not me, I refuse to let it define me.

Hola, my name is Andrew, but you can call me Drew. Or one of my many blogging nicknames; Lonely Author, LA, TLAB, Vagabond Poet, El Vagabondo, Lonely, and the Beach Boy.

I am passionate about many things; being positive, life, love, music, poetry, writing, and then there’s my greatest passion of all – women.

My heart is filled with love and admiration for all women. I adore their laughter, playfulness, even their head scratching prerogative to change their mind. Love to see them in beautiful dresses, jeans, and barefoot. I am attracted to their curves, fascinated by their mystery, inspired by their scent and femininity.

I am a single guy, a dreamer, a poet, an ex-New Yorker living in Orlando, Florida. Hoping to get my three manuscripts published and two screenplays to the big screen, and who knows, maybe I will find love along the way….

      1. Thank you sweet Drew. I’m well friend. Still struggling to find steady work and an income of any kind (haven’t had any since the middle of March), but I have lots of interviews, so I know the right one will come soon. 🙂 In the meantime, I have wonderful family, friends and my faith to keep me going. But my health is good and I’m enjoying life! Now we just need to get you all fixed up permanently so you can get back to enjoying your life! My prayers will continue for you. Love you my friend xoxoxoxo

    I once knew a New Yorker ❤️ Oh my god! He was awesome … I loved the way he talked and he was a former New Yorker construction worker – so he was hilarious … telling me I could stop traffic and you know really pouring it on lol … he used to pretend to have a heart attack when I came near him cause would say my beauty was killing him, his heart couldn’t take it lol .😄🙄 he was funny. ❤️ New Yorkers – quite charming.

    Will be thinking of you – hurry back!

      1. Ya know they say laughter is the best medicine right? Keep doing that… even when my Sox’s take your Yankees down lol ✌️

        Funny how the best teams come from the Northeast huh? Lol … I could be biased but whatever ✌️😘

        What are you doing in Florida?? All those northeast people retire to Florida lol

        I used to live in Winter Springs, for a little bit, back in the 80’s when I was a kid✌️ I love Sanibel Island 🌴

        I see you must be spoiled by weather like me? I am in California now… we all escape 😄😄😄 ✌️

        It’s funny my friends HERE in California always say… “ohhh I would love it to snow or be cold like New England 🤨

        I give them a week of the bone chill 😄- these California people lol 😘✌️

        You take care 🙏 💕


      1. Lovely to hear from you, Andrew. Like people in other countries, we, too, live in uncertainties. I’m fine, reading extensively. When feeling trapped/lost in our sometimes confusing world, I always turn to books. I hope you’re happy and well, with all my heart. Take care ❤️


  3. Wonderful introduction of yourself. I think that I will call you Andrés. The sound has much more flare to it. I think you have found love already, it’s all around you and yet I know the love you speak of. Best wishes for what’s to come. Thoughts and prayers going your way.
