It's the Holiday Season: Photography, Music and Other Gift Ideas

It's the Holiday Season. Books make great gifts, indeed, but here are other gift ideas.

How about photography books, or art, photography or music?

If you like music, check out recording and performing artist Ira Weitz. His new CD is You Read, You Write, You Rock, offers educational songs for children ages five to twelve. To learn more about the artist, check out my interview with Ira Weitz, "Addy-Addy-O, Time to Let Go."

Another interesting recording and performing artist, and also an LGBT activist, is Lovari. I got to know him a few years ago, and also I got to photograph and interview him a few times. Check out his new hits at www.lovariworld.com


If you are a fan of photography and art then check out a spectacular award-winning artist, photographer Kurt Weston. And read about his life and art story in Journeys Through Darkness: A Biography.
