Delightful meeting Steven Salmon Again

While in Wisconsin, I met our author Steven Salmon at the concert on the Square in Madison, WI. He introduced me to two friends, also disabled, who aspire to be authors too. Steven's positivity and joy in life continue to impress and inspire me.

Happy Birthday to Author Grace Scott

This is a day to celebrate Scott Grace, author of How to Evolve During the Trump Experience Whether Humanity Joins You or Not.  Happy Birthday to a very dynamic author who is out there with his improvisational skills, his creativity, and his quest to make this planet a better place.

But Scott somehow seems to waltz through life with joy in his heart.  He gave me a CD when we...
