Twenty Blocks North of the Rock Pile–a new play coming to Florida

I’m pleased to announce that my play TWENTY BLOCKS NORTH OF THE ROCK PILE has been selected in the Orlando Fringe Fest lottery (Okay, third tier) and thus will be one of the pieces performed in Orlando next May. I had despaired of ever getting this play produced, and I thought this was the way […]

The six year cycle (a retrospective)

It’s a mandala, I tell you. The road goes on forever and the party never ends (sorta). I began writing this blog a little over six years ago. I’ve been looking at old stories on this blog, and there’s something like 650. Some of those were reblogged from other sources (Hello Kevin Hester) but I […]

Support the Arts today!!

The Trumpsters are coming after all funding for the arts. According to the National Endowment for the Arts, (NEA) we spent $146 M of federal money for galleries, music, dance and theater last year.

Guy McPherson packs it in(sort of)

If you’ve followed this blog space for any length of time, you know that I’ve been greatly influenced by the work of Dr. Guy McPherson. He has been postulating that we’d passed a point of no return on climate some time ago and that (at the end) only love remains. Anyway, this video found itself […]

The ‘Planet Hospice’ Yeast-Sex Tour

I wanted people to know that if they missed my play PLANET HOSPICE (a theatrical romp through human extinction) at United Solo and the Ithaca Fringe and the Tampa Fringe (and most recently at the Tremors Art Show at the Point Green Gallery), there’s always an opportunity to see it. I’ll explain below. It’s a clown play/comedy […]
