Community and Music have been my focus.
My latest musical adventure is writing out, and making a
video of a very funny original composition, combining spoken comedy, rock 'n roll or popular music in one hand, and classical music in the other YouTube Video
last ten years have been about meeting and connecting with many thousands of people, making friends and social contacts. It has also made real for me that I have a spiritual life. I was
married and divorced during this period, and I am ever-grateful to my ex-wife/family for the crucial life lessons they taught me.
I have launched a Community Center, or a Community Resource Sharing Center, in
Bayside Queens, NYC, NY.

I want to thank all of you, my friends and fans, the already existing organizations such as Institute for Self-Healing, Landmark Education, and Shalom Mountain, for the possibility of beauty and harmony being ever-present.
Thank you for keeping me on track for living a life I love, and being powerful.
