Talk Radio Interview

I am posting today a interview I did with the talented Lesley Riley many moons ago.  It is all very relevant and has become even more relevant to me as I am writing my Memoirs and having to do all of that thinking and looking back on my life has reminded me of the wonderful eclectic life I have had.

2016 Leigh Weimers Award

Yesterday was the ceremony for the 2016 Leigh Weimers Awards given by The Rotary Club of San Jose.  The location was beautiful and there must have been a few hundred people in attendance.
I love speaking about my "Swimming Upstream" installation and how it relates to everyone trying to navigate life and as we were only given a few minutes I felt proud to be able to give a clear view of the installation with the help of a power point. Below is a picture of the very unique 3-dimensional award.  Money arrives next week, I have to say this is a very proud moment for me.
