To be saved from folly, you need either kind friends or fierce enemies.

Paris S. Singer

Adam's mother and Co-Author, she has resided in Washington, DC since 1970 where she became a professional photographer for congressional committees, Journals, and travel documentaries.

Her 9/11 photographs are part of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History's collection, "September 11: Bearing Witness to History."

Paris is an active participant in long-distance caregiving with the Caring From A Distance organization.



He is a denizen of Doggie Park on Capitol Hill and a rescue mutt from Homeward Trails. He has grown into a true cynic in the best sense: tasting everything for himself, while showing the essentials for an authentic life.

Now that he is old enough to drink, he is preparing for his next role: Cocktails with Diogenes.

He continues to look for an honest man.

Dr. Adam H. Russell

The Co-Author, was born in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC, where he now lives with his wife, Bartlett and their foundling, Diogenes. A Rhodes Scholar and a rugby player, Adam supported Bartlett's insistence on rescuing Diogenes, especially when they saw the abandoned puppy trying to lift a stick three times his size. Bartlett said, "That's our dog," and Adam, who knew a fellow "warrior-poet" when he saw one, agreed.
