[Agora Index] [EMail] [A Self Portrait]
An agora is more than a marketplace. Ideas take form when intertwined with the commerce of goods. The exchange of barbs, quips, insights, and sighs take on a vibrancy when coupled with the exchange of services. Socrates, himself, swore he couldn't s tand it when separated from his beloved agora.

Woody was born an only child, a mistake soon rectified by his parents.

Now he lives in California, wondering if his words do glow like the gold of sunrise.
Photos and film clips will complement a stream of conciousness narrative. May God be with you (he turns, makes a flourish with his cape, and exits).
