Jay Thiemeyer

“I spent more than two decades not knowing where I would sleep each night.” So begins Jay Thiemeyer’s introduction to Marginal Notes. Twenty years on the street, fighting alcohol and inner demons, Jay’s story is one of hope and good fortune found in nurturing friendships, which helped him to extricate himself from the unkind fate of so many street people. His education, and ability to articulate his experiences no doubt played a role also. He writes unsentimentally about life in the underbelly of society.
