Welcome to a place for thoughts, musings and passages of this old Floridian. At its heart, stories, and reflections on the lives of Americans.
Alexandar Hemon said, "The whole character of my personal sovereignty is formulated through the act of storytelling. As long as we're trying to imagine someone else's life, someone else's spirit, we are all connected."

So I apologize for the raw recordings, but that’s me—unbridled and unvarnished.
