Call me George. I'm a 61 year-old disabled Viet Nam War vet and I recently retired after many years as a professional musician and music teacher. I've been writing all of my life - stories, songs, poems, essays and some newspaper articles - and now, in my near dotage, I've decided to make writing my main endeavor. I've been prowling around this site for a while and it seems pretty cool. I look forward to interacting with everybody. Thanks for having me.
