7.7

This is the advertisement that introduced me to the Marianists in March of 1980.
I love the copywriting. It could still be used today —
just substitute a Nissan Sentra for the Beetle.
I had a Chevette and sold it to a brother who was leaving.
Life is amazing… how we all have a path.

I am excited, thankful and honored
to have been accepted into the Annual Juried Issue
of Letter Arts Review (Winter 2018)…

 

I feel this recognition would not have occurred if it were not for the gift of many wonderful creative cheerleaders in my life: my parents, Andy & Betty were always interested in and supportive of my creative endeavors; art teachers: Holland Patent Central School — Grace Paull, Miriam Kashawa, Martha Deming, Helen Rusinek; professors: Mohawk Valley Community College — Paul Bowers, Sam Patterson (who encouraged us to keep a sketchbook); University at Buffalo — Don Nichols, Tony Rozak, Paul McKenna; Syracuse University — John Vargo, John Sellers, Ken Hine, Murray Tinkelman, Larry Bakke; and Marianist brother mentors: Gary Marcinowski, Bob Hughes, Joe Barrish, and last, but not least… Mel Meyer… thank you, all!
