Doug Ward Today: An Update
I live in Arizona, Doug lives in New York. Our communication is primarily by telephone, letters and email. As you know Doug is recovering from a very serious cancer related operation. This was last May and his recovery has been slow. I spoke to him last week and I am happy to report that he is sounding clearer and sharper than he did before. To me a real sign of his recovery is that he’s anxious to get back to several personal projects he had to put aside due to his illness. Particularly the film/video production of his single character drama Dessalines the third play of his Haitian Chronicles. Besides that he is also looking forward to Christmas with his wife, his children and grand children.
He also asked me to convey to all how moved and pleased he was by the outpouring of support that he received from so many of you during that difficult time… He has promised to send me some of the letters and notes he received so that I can publish them in our next issue.
