9.1.03 Transom.org accepts Dangling Woman, an audio version of a piece I wrote for Mad in Pursuit in 2/01. It will be part of a trilogy of personal essays. They will pay $150, which also gives them the right to air it on their New England public radio stations. How cool is that? I was walking on air for hours.

7.17.03 Great news: "The Valentine 1955" was chosen for the United Nations Association Film Festival to be held at Stanford U. in October. There were 30 films chosen on the theme of "Promotion of Universal Respect." At two minutes, mine is the very shortest. I have stardust in my eyes...

5.5.03 Today's entry not only celebrates the Irish-American song, but also my digital triumph over the home-recorded 78 of the 1940s. The Same Old Shillelagh was a favorite in my mother's family. If you don't get it from the song words, a shillelagh is a gnarled stick with the sole purpose (as far as I can tell) of hitting people. Imagine that: a minority culture celebrating violence in popular song...

7.16.02 I completed my first website for someone else: Koehler Kreations It was an enjoyable project because their product is so imaginative -- full of swirls and grace and whimsy. I dallied way too long over the graphics, experimenting with photos and photo effects. I was less concerned with conveying information than with conjuring up magic and excitement. Then the challenge was turning all my pretty little pictures into a cohesive set of web pages.
