The Wondrous Mystery of Dreams

A while back I wrote this, which pretty much no one read. Then, this morning, a woman from Kenya wrote me to say: “Hi. I had a dream last night that a pastor Lunalo came to preach in Kenya. He preached on a message and the whole street was paying attention to him. Unfortunately, I [Read More…]

The Play’s the Thing

  Last night, at the San Diego Repertory Theater,  I had the almost disturbingly pleasurable pleasure of watching a reader’s theater presentation of my mini, two-person one-act play, Mankind: The Preview.
