If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

I think Samuel Beckett would have been an interesting person to meet.

What influenced you to submit to have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

Recently I have been writing Plays, Short Stories and Poetry. All seems very depressing and it is something that I am trying to get out of my writing. Have to include some hope.
