Fantasizing about spring...
Seems like I did nothing but experiment with changing my animation formats from Quicktime to something that would make a gorgeous DVD.

Barrett Brothers Park. The inauguration of the Hip Hop Garden at the St Louis park named for my mom's cousins is happening April 4. They are giving a kind nod to the Barrett family and their history in the neighborhood. I decided to fly down there and be the family spokesperson for our 2 minutes of fame.
There is the possibility of additional coverage by the Historical Society and some local media, so I've written a 2-page family history for the event's media book and am busy straightening out the kinks in my jumble of Barrett family web pages.

MANIFESTO: TELL STUNNING STORIES. Dial up the volume of my voice; take risks; make it impeccable.
