More Writings

My Hunter High School reunion piece was finally printed with some typos/edit issues -see page 11 of the PDF.

Also - I started an intro for one possible book on 'mating' in middle age- May post more soon with survey questions for my 'research' and to check out my assumptions and presumptions.

How well can we (men and women) match- is it different in middle-age? (This is not a history project- not a focus on the Middle Ages)

Anyway got the bulk of my web site up for an Educational Web development class. I will propose a Dance Hub for real to the schools, or town - or just host it myself-

My UMASS personal web site.

Enjoy- Spring is here

I Was A Little Chicken


Mother’s Day has come and gone- and spring certainly seems like it has established a steady stance. Looking towards Father’s Day…
This weekend I received this announcement:

My contribution of a ‘letter’ to my own father - a birth reflection- will appear in a book to be released in June:

Letters to Fathers from Daughters (Paperback)by Sharon Alworth (Author), Bonnie Birnam (Author) - You can order it via Amazon:

Book Description: A touching, inspiring, and ultimately healing book of writings from real people. Composed of letters and poems that depict brief snapshots of women’s relationships with their fathers with an overall tone of gratitude, or of valuable lessons learned, often despite difficult circumstances.

I am excited- and pleased-

My Piece, “I Was a Little Chicken”, is a reflection and reworking of a birth memory. Still emerging as a person, creator, and writer - I welcome this opportunity to share myself and thoughts with a larger world.

I always found it fascinating that my last name is Ozer. It can mean ‘healer/helper’ in Hebrew. Ozersky is ‘of the lake’ in Russian.

I do hope my work/contributions in the world will have some depth and facilitate healing and growth.
