IN MEMORY: Two gifted talents who inspired me besides Steve White to do this documentary and to get it out to the world. Dear departed Ron Espinosa who wrote "You have told the life story of a great musician and artist...It took one to tell it.. Steve's story will sing on and on thanks to you, and the music you made with your visual creation....keep on keepin on...Ron Espinoza

and my dear friend Joy Doherty, my yoga spirit and friend and urged me to the finish line. Both gone way too soon.
