Oddball! Yes, I’ve been one my entire life. Thank you for noticing. Welcome to the Underground Garden.

Poetry, music, song, dance, love are my favorite of the Human Experience. I’ve been with pen in hand since my pre-teen days in Lawrence, Massachusetts. First heard a muse in Freestyle music then energized my body with House music all night long. My mind relaxed with every detailed sentence of my day. Writing is Life.

Here at the Underground Garden, the word, through conversations, will welcome you to local talent, their inspirations, accomplishments, future projects and spaces they create filled with passion and artists.

The word at the Underground Garden, in rhyme, comes from good old fashion Life Lessons, through teacher and student.

Be it an interview, an essay, a poem, Rooms from The Other Sides or a You-Just-Have-To-Check-This-Out! feature, the Underground Garden, with its fresh dirt from which the Muse’s seeds will rise, has arrived.

I look forward to sharing with you the greatness of our cities and its talent, pieces from past lives, stories from other times as well as music, parties or special events for all of our enjoyment!

Writing is Life and I thank you.
