POD 2020 Donation

In the busyness of shows and rehearsals and holidays, I realized the other day 

that I forgot to share the donation we made from our Peace Day 2020 Celebration. 

The $50 we raised from virtual ticket sales went straight to Peace One Day 

and their fabulous organization. Thank you SO much

to all of the amazing family and friends who gave their time, 

energy, effort and enthusiasm.

$35.50 GBP = $50.65 USD

I hope you are all doing well and I look forward to collaborating for Peace Day 2021 !

Celebrating the two year anniversary of my book, A Branch, A Few Words... with a poem.

Still humbled and a bit amazed that you can find my book in paperback and in Kindle format on Amazon.

Fun fact : I first started recording my poems last year, during quarantine, when I literally had no other excuse not to. Lol 

I always have fun making these videos. Thanks so much for listening !

This is, "all keys"...
