How to Dance for Your Meal


I’ve been in this business awhile so let me tell you something right here and now. There are no handouts in life.

That’s where you’re are wrong my friend! You have the one gift, bestowed by Jesus and Van Damme, that cures all wounds and pays all bills. I am, of course, talking about the gift of the dance.

An Author’s Broken Heart…


I understand that the subject of this piece may sound bitter, and off-putting, and I assure you, that is intentional. Why do I seem to be so heart broken? The weather is nice outside. It’s Friday! Well, please allow me to tell you why I’m so upset, through the power of Grammy Award Nominated* Album cover art!
