Dream. Believe. Do.

Dennis Hodges was Sir Dudley to my Queen Elizabeth Iin Vivat Vivat Regina at Southwestern College in the1977-78 school year. He was 2 years younger than me but just as charming as Sir dudley. He was also and is kind, creative, and a true “Renaissance” man.

His group of classmates never failed to invite me to all their class renions. With the advent of Facebook, I was able to reestablish many of the college relationships I had in the 70’s. In fact, I probably have more relationships with people I wasn’t friends with college now. Age and maturity do a lot for relationships.

Dennis is largely responsible for me starting to write again. It was a statement he made on Facebook that resonanted with me that got me started again.

As a result, we were able to reestablish a much deeper and meanigful relationship- philosphically and creatively over the past year.

I am deeply honoured to be interviewed by Dennis for his web site, Dream. Beleive. Do. It is a validation of my own artistry. Thank you, Dennis, for helping me to realise the value of ME.
