In May, I read in Paris at Shakespeare and Co. with Ping Pong Magazine. 

Arts in the Woods happened last summer. I facilitated a writing workshop and bonded with some very interesting young writers. 

My novel, TWO AUGUSTS IN A ROW IN A ROW will be published in February, 2015, with Publication Studio in Fellow Travelers Series.

We Are the Champions (DJ LGBT Remix)

Here's a new video for your viewing pleasure, a remix of Freddie Mercury's Champions. I appear at 3:40 minutes.

So much is going on these days. Voter rights being taken away in a flash by elderly racists on the supreme court. Citizens' privacy has been miserably invaded by the government. Citizens are being treated like enemy combatants for speaking up. Things are upside down at the moment. 

Meanwhile, on more optimistic news: NYC finally put together an outside group to watch over the police department. The racial and gender profiling stop and frisk has been voted out, thank the goddess.   And we have more rights as LTGBQ citizens in this country!

Here's a quote that articulates the moment well first from an unknown source: I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.
Then from Martin Luther King jr. : 'Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.'--MLK Jr.
