My Provincetown vacation is over and my mind is wiped clean.

I saw Kate Clinton perform Thursday night, and it was like watching one of those Japanese chefs slicing and dicing faster than the eye can see.

Gahlord my web guy is about to unveil a makeover of this site. I’m trying to figure out a way to put up info about my new book, The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For.
