an amazing band, but is also the 11th hour angel who

Bookstore Café, 128 South Allen Street, State
The LAST independent bookseller in State College,
the CENTRAL community gathering, the BEST coffee in
town! Owned by one of my best friends, Elaine Meder-Wilgus.
Elaine has been a force in my life, and has supported
me along the way, from the very first steps I took
to doing the work I do as an activist. Gratitude doesn't
Chris Nelson - Web Master, Designer, Photographer, and Truly Wonderful Person
Chris was responsible for the development of my website
for years. Huge gratitude to Chris for initially creating
the site and for making the world a better place.
The Mighty-Mighty-Wiggus, Bill Wilgus - Producer, Guitarist, Designer, Amazing Person
Mighty-Mighty is responsible for the design of the compact disc the scorched earth: spoken, and for the support and encouragement that he offered to help me release it. Bill has been one of my best friends for years, and like his wife, Elaine Meder-Wilgus, he has supported me along the way, from the first steps I took to own my life the way I do now. I wrote the poem, The Dream Before Us (on the poems page) for them on their wedding day. The two of them have taught me more about love than I can even explain. And no one plays a guitar the way Bill does.
Bob Klotz - Producer, Sound Engineer
Bob is responsible for my compact disc, the scorched earth: spoken, which is the companion to my first chapbook, the scorched earth. Bob recorded the live tracks on this compact disc, and handled all of its production, in addition to the MP3 page on the books/CDs/films page of this site. Bob is one of the people for whom I am most grateful.
Judy Walgren, Pulitzer-Prize Winning Photojournalist, Warrior-Woman
Judy, like her photography, is amazing: Bared, utterly honest, and compelling. Judy took a few of the black-and-white shots on my site during a trip we took to NYC in 2003. The cover photo of the documentary short film about my work, One Woman’s Voice, taken in front of the New York Public Library, was one of those shots. Judy remains an inspiration to me, as she was when we first met in Taos, NM years ago.
Tolins - Bluesman of the highest order
Andy also recorded the majority of the compact disc,
the scorched earth: spoken,
and has supported me over the years with a huge heart.
Huge gratitude for that support and for his music,
which makes me want to only dance.
Paul Pascarella - Artist
Paul is one of the finest artists I know... painter, motorcycle-racing mad man, wicked good cook. He is the Paul for whom the poem He Paint Buffalo was written, which is published in Earthships: The New Mexico Poetry Anthology, 2007.
Paul Devlin - Independent Filmmaker
Paul is the force behind two international award-winning films, Power Trip and Slam Nation, and a multiple Emmy Award-winner for his work with CBS Sports. Check out:
