I claim to be a struggling veteran but it has nothing to do with war or politics. It is about survival as an artist. The “nine wasted years”, state capture, corruption and resultant economic climate have made us all poorer. Bureaucracy (for my permits) and ill health has played their part and the hackers and thieves are not making it any easier for me. My website has been hacked twice! Abandoned for some time it has now been resurrected for the third time. To boot, I am well, my permits are in order and we have a new president. Aleuta Continua!
