"It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it." - Anais Nin
As writers, we know that the magic happens through hard work, through craft. Dana is a hard-working writer at the top of his craft--making magic happen. Last night he was up against the Harlem Globetrotters at SMSU. He could go toe to toe with them as far as artistry--just in a different craft.
Dana is currently at work on a book about the history of the highly successful SMSU Women's Tennis Team from 1979 to 1992 under the leadership of Head Coach Hugh Curtler, professor emeritus of philosophy at SMSU and former Director of the Honors Program.
