I have surprised myself a little today. I have been going through my notebooks. Saving what has promise. Trashing what in my mind was unsavable. As I went through my things I got this brain storm in my head. I decided to write my life story. I don't know why. I mean I haven't done anything yet that...

When I was a child, I had new beginnings, just like any other children. I was born in Oullins (France) and I had partially grown in both France and Republic of the Congo. When I moved to the Congo, things were also great for the first time and I was always hopeful. But...when I was four, I was...

My thoughts as a child were only to marry a loving man who was kind and generous; have two beautiful children that were perfect in every...

Thomas Hoving died today. Met him once, this famous, urbane former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was a Central California museum event and Hoving was the guest speaker. I was standing with the Sacramento artist Gregory Kondos. Hoving walked up and we talked. Don't remember a damn...

  "And then, a man entered the room. But he didn't."     THE CLOSET    Cheated I walk Defeated I pass Tears give in Hopes take on   Apples fall Prisms break Sins scream Colors smoke    A wrath in his eyes The blood on his mind The skin of my back A whip in...

A twing of agony grips me as I write this, an effort to free my mind of the clutter, confusion and chaotic universe that has defined the last 342 days of my life.  A violent collision of fate, reality and misfortune broadsided me this year. In the process, I have learned the true meaning of loss,...
