# 34

What kind of story would Munish tell? After the production of #34, at Regina's Globe Theatre, I stayed for the opening night party. I chatted with Munish, congratulating him on his success as the playwright and performer. He told me that when he started developing the idea for this story he was prompted by the...

54 Successes Big and Small

A couple of years ago I started an annual post around my birthday where I created a list with the number of items coinciding with my age. I intend to live a long time so I may need to rethink this concept in the future. For now, with a little thinking, I'm managing. Check out... Continue Reading →

Genius!

I'm a teacher as well as a writer, so let me add this, "Yeah, right…" I have never had my IQ tested. I don't care. These tests... Continue Reading →

Happy Anniversary to Counios and Gane

Blessings of Travel

Last night from the balcony of my bedroom in Thessaloniki, Greece, I felt a familiar calling from the long-ago times.
