I'm considering trying develop a story based on the life of Dr. Jacques Delphin.
Here's the nuts and bolts of his life...
born into poverty in Haiti
wants to become a doctor
has no money or place to study medicine
publishes works of poetry written in French
comes to America to study medicine and psychiatry
has long and productive career in psychiatry
serves as medical director for a behaviorial health outfit
goes into semi-retirement
takes on problem causes and those very upset with their current provider
meets Royal works wonders through conversation and medication with Royal
in retirement becomes a celebrated Jazz musician, performing with his son.
