A parody by Valeriu Buev

An abstract from the story “Personal Projections” by Jayseth Geberman

published in the magazine “Mercator’s World” March/April 1997

Several years ago I was watching a children’s television show with my nephew, who was about a year and a half old at the time.

On the blackened screen appeared an animated outline of Africa. The outline then changed shape several times to form an outline of a lion, an elephant, rhinoceros, and then back to the African continent – each time… Continue

and bookmark her spot

for food and playtime

were bothersome lots

one day while visiting

the land by the sea

she spotted a tree

as grande as can be

a mighty old oak

branches silent and… Continue

Looking for Work

My brother Eric and I play mostly traditional Irish music (there are some samples of us on his page as well as mine), and we are looking for a couple venues or whateva to play at... we can also play music that's a little more 'mainstream' if that suits anyone who is interested. Does anyone know a few places that are looking for live music?

I may be "quiet" online for awhile...

Just a heads up.... I no longer have my own internet access from home and have to get rides to other places to get online. But I will try to log on a couple times a week.

So if you leave a comment for me and I do not respond right away.... don't take it personal! However, if you really need to reach me... send a message via the email option which I will be less likely to miss when I do log on.

Thank you! and Thanks for all your support!

O.K. so the Foot Fetish II show was kind of a on...

As we all might know, art shows don't always go the way we want them to. The

FOOT FETISH II show was not very well attended but on the positive side of things, everyone worked really hard. The BBQ was delicious and the entertainment was great (Lance Canales, True Blue, and Jon Artz performed), and those of us who did participate had fun. We even had Big Foot running around the ballroom. Saundra King gave tours of her lofts. The art was really cool, the dancers were hot and when it was all… Continue
