I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.

  1. Hi Genie,

    A nice memorial for your father! Is this for Memorial Day? My father was a veteran of WW2 also! He lived from 1916-1998.
