He was the initial holder of the McMillan Professorship in Analytical Psychology at Texas A&M University (the first of its kind in the world), and is now Affiliate Professor in Psychiatry at Oregon Health & Science University.
Currently living in Eugene, Oregon, with his wife Lanara, David walks, paints and sees analytic patients. He also enjoys creating visual art, performing stand-up comedy, and writing haiku and ten-minute plays.
"If Salvador Dali's Don Quixote gave up tilting with windmills in favor of exploring the depths like a good Jungian … that is how I visualized the illustrations for Spelunking Through Life." Diane Katz has illustrated many books of haiku, including Learning to See the Truth; The Stone House; Beneath the Willow Tree; and In the Night Shallows, which are available from Rosenberry Books.
Diane also created artwork for David Rosen's The Tao of Elvis and Time, Love and Licorice: A Healing Coloring Storybook, available from Wipf & Stock.
She is currently illustrating The Whistle Prayer and is the author of On All My Holy Mountain: A Modern Fraktur; Apples Dipped in Honey: A Jewish ABC; and The Story-Letters from Appletta Tooth Fairy.
