From Mary – My first feature since this sorta appearance (photo) at a Poetry &Art/SDAI reading in 2016 (was surprised to see that I was featured in an article about it/hence this photo). Was sick and/or otherwise out of commission for the last two scheduled. So it will be a lot of newer work, with mb a little song & dance. I promise nothing, really, & hope for everything.
