Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



No power
But still have a roof

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  7. That’s a darn good point! I’ve been in Vegas seven years, have yet to feel any kind of quake, I hope it stays that way but there’s no warning! I used to live in Dunedin in the 1990s, lost the house, car and too many things in a major flood. The home was on the Intracoastal waterway…
