I’m tony (A longshot Lucky Winner – same as You). You have landed on my creative website. Whether you being here is random, by intent or you’re a coerced friend or family member, I do hope you’ll look around.
I would like to give credit to my beautiful (scout’s honor) wife Hessie for her encouragement and tolerance (note: I think I have the order right – for more on such seminal realities, check these pages further) . For 50+ years we have partnered on a variety of projects, most importantly: making our way in this world; begetting, raising and caring for our children as best we knew/know how, and, lately, as attentive & adoring grandparents whenever the opportunity arises.
In all matters, of which those creative are a small sub-set, she has provided support, while bravely offering constructive criticism (knowing full well how I dislike but need criticism). When I first met Hessie, I posed as an engineering student pretending to be an artistic type (or was it the other way around?). I showed her pretty face some of my artwork (if it wasn’t very good, it was in my Physics Book which was I correctly surmised might prejudice her favorably – bingo). Only later did I discover that she has more talent and is more steadfast than I in most endeavors, including painting, but also with respect to some technical matters (e.g., she is the one who can be relied upon to read and understand an instruction manual, or remember where it’s stored).
I continue to try to entice Hessie to join me as an equal partner out here in cyberspace. So far I have managed get her to allow me to exhibit some of her art on various landings (e.g., as embeds in some of my poems and short fiction). Plus her own “Still Moments” pages are being constructed). And she continues to be an integral part of our videos, either in front of the camera or in post-production. Also, Hessie proofs most of my prose so that it at least approximates reasonably standard American English (easy to spot those posts, they’re the ones with few or no typos).
From this “Overlook” home page you can easily navigate to any of the the content, viz., by clicking on the headings at the top or on the Categories buttons shown on the right. (The latter method will get you to more embedded art.)
You can instantly leap over to my Youtube Channel (with >50 videos by clicking on the avatar on the bottom of the page of me lumbering into the sunset.

Do come by again sometime if you feel like it and get a chance. I am sentimental enough to look forward to reunions, actually sometimes enjoy them, the good ones anyway.
P.S. I would like to thank webmaster Joshua Gelwicks of NoDeadEnd whose prowess has been essential to the launching of weighty me and some of my stuff out into these cosmic fields…spatial ethers…cyberwhatevers.
