Born New Bethlehem, Penn. Go Starlighters!! (H.S. slogan). Chautauqua summers, Buffalo winters. Crouse Hall, Archibald Stadium with Owsley dreams. Ferlinghetti flights and Earth Day wishes. Lennon manifests and Zappa compositions. Classical Europe and Contemporary L.A. Mid-state NY commune with apple wood in kitchen stove. Travel to the Gathering of the Tribes. White Buffalo in the mountains. Ann Arbor with weigh station and oak covered home. The farm in Maine: jazz still echoing down the Passadumkeag. Start a family down by the lake. Draw what I see or paint what I feel? Driving roof nails, jacking up porches, designing kitchens—hey an artist has got to eat!
