I cannot tell I am a Social Media Animal but I used to post regularly telling about forthcoming projects, performances and new creations; not for the last six months . . .

I have been working on my debut book of poems, pictures and reflections …which I am now happy to announce, is currently being prepared for production under New Departures’s aegis. More about this soon . . . / 2020 UPDATE: THE BOOK IS READY.

ALSO : — New Performance, this time in California @ Beyond Baroque,  681 Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291 — Looking forward to it . . .
