My very first webpage began, "Home is where the heart is. These are the projects where I live." It contained one-page summaries of StreetWrites, StreetLife Gallery, SHARE, WHEEL — each of which has grown into its own sizable website (most are offline being updated.)w

I still have many enthusiasms, I write about them all, and I put it all up on websites.

Every now and then, a visitor asks to know about me: what was my personal experience with homelessness, with bipolar disorder, with childhood sexual abuse; how do I live now; what's a "day in the life of Anitra" like; where did I get that name anyway? They even want to see photos. Some of them want to know if I'm married, and what I'm doing Saturday night.

       So here's All About Anitra
       And yes, I'm married. And Saturday night he'll probably be watching Mad TV,
       and I'll be updating my website.
