I was born in 1942. I have done many things for money, never making very much. I have done many things for love and have been gratified for that. Just a few of both: graphic designer, taxi driver, assistant to theater directors, actor, dish washer, writer, painter, filmmaker, photographer, garden designer, garden restorer, building contractor, and bar tender. I have been called a project person and an outsider artist. I stake claim to both. Dr. Alagari has many compartments in his cabinet. I invite you to look into as many as you like. Except as noted, text and photographs are original. Copyright © Tom Parrish

I am going to be out of commission for about 5 weeks.  I’ve been having trouble with an old hip replacement prosthesis.  Since before Thanksgiving, it has bee coming apart, and I have surgery scheduled next week to fix it.  I’ll be away from my computer and my camera, but I should be back with working parts beginning in March.  Take care.  Carpe Diem
