In 2004, I suffered a sudden and dramatic loss of vision, which left me with diminishing eyesight, extreme light sensitivity, constant headaches, and fatigue. In time, I adapted to my new way of life, and turned my attention to Opera, Gardens, Yoga, and the Greek myths I had always loved. But my days as an art critic were over.

I had a great run. I saw many marvelous works of art, met many wonderful artists and friends, and wrote hundreds of Stories about Art. Some stories were lost, and others existed only in tattered Xeroxes, obscure computer files, or obsolete radio tapes. Now I am finally posting my archive on the Web, here at

I hope you will enjoy reading my Stories about Art as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Thanks to all the Artists and Friends who inspired me along the Way.
