Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

My friend and neighbor, Sandi McCree has a new webisode. Please do me a favor and take a look.

You might recognize Sandi from her role in “The Wire” (greatest tv show ever.)

Another friend of mine, Mark Zipoli, has his new novel, The Long Habit of Living, out and is available on Amazon.

Last but certainly not least my good friend Michael Lally has a new CD of his poetry, Lost Angels here.* It includes his very well known anti-war (and prophetic) poem, March 18, 2003. Michael is also the author of It's Not Nostalgia, which won an American Book Award.

*And now available at Amazon as well as CD Baby and downloadable at iTunes.

From John Rabe of KPCC:

"Dear listeners,
The LA photographer Kevin McCollister just sent me his slim but elegant collection of photos of LA, titled "East of West LA." The photo above, "LA River," is in the book.

...The book is worth having."
