I've been on a hiatus due to the mounting of my production and recuperating from all the hard work and the wonderful experience.  In the midst of preparing to remount another production as a recipent of a Space Grant I found out that I had possibly unknowingly been suffering for years with a rare hereditary and progressive illness. Since I only know my maternal side of the family there is no one that I am aware of who has or has had this condition.  And to add more mystery my symptoms seem to match the form of this condition that only affects people of European Ancestry...  I doubt if the test results will be in before this show but I will keep all abreast of what's going on.  Whether it is the rare form or the form found in manyl ethnic groups it is hereditary and not known to any members of my family. This is so ironic because last year I started a petition requesting free DNA Tests for Ancestry for dispersed groups and abandoned or adopted folks and advocated strongly about this topic on this show.  It is for this reason that I have subtitled this show "The Total Irony Of It All".  

I will also discuss the very spiritual element here regarding ancestry and why this seeming "coincidence"?

Please take a moment and sign in the meantime...
