I can't play videos too well on this aging computer, but it sounds like you are doing some creative stuff in honor of your dad. By the way, I will be finally updating this computer, but it's just a task waiting in line for now. Cheers and love to all, Lurene

Yes, I understand your points. Today's news events were so horrific, though, that I do not even feel I can predict the events of the next two months in the Mideast and United States.

The best way to embrace the writing life is just to embrace it. Starting with what you call yourself.

I’ve been thinking a lot about choice lately. Not about the choices in my life specifically but about the power of making decisions. I believe it speaks to the core of our humanity, the ability to make a choice and change your life, even if it’s something…

Oh good. What's his name? I will remember his name; he only really tried once to nip me and then grudgingly let me touch him (note the grudgingly)

Story
Tagline
writer, photographer, and life artist.
Introduction
A master of reinvention I've studied civil engineering, but ended up studying journalism only to get a job in 1988 and thrive as a photojournalist until 1999 when I made the ill fated decision to strike out on my own and engage the craft of video. This led to movies and film making which led me back to photojournalism where I became a war correspondent for the Army Times. Being immersed in war led me to writing. And now I'm finishing my first novel, From Rum to Roots. Confused? So am I......

Bragging rights
I am proud to call myself a survivor. You wouldn't believe what I've been through...
