As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, for close to two years I’ve been embroiled in a family fight over money that has created…Continue

Musical Youth, the manuscript of mine that placed second for the Burt Award in 2014 and is soon to be published, was fresh in my mind, recently, as I dug through my e-folder filled with scraps of things – unfinished things, ideas for things.
