Few people are lucky enough to experience close-up those mutually attracting worlds of politics and entertainment. Donald Webster is one of those. From his earliest memories he set his sights on Washington, D.C., where he imagined the fate of the world was decided. Over the years he realized his youthful dream --working in the Congress, the Treasury and the White House. But his political career failed to provide a sense of creative satisfaction, and when his first wife died, he cut loose from Washington and headed to a California beach and later to New York to study painting and photography. A long and winding trail finally led him to writing as his preferred means of creative self expression. His transformation from the world of politics to that of the arts took a decisive leap forward after he fell in love with actress Diana Douglas. Now married and living in Los Angeles, they have an ongoing creative partnership and a wide circle of vital artistic friends. The author's personal transformation in his work, his thinking and his innermost nature is substantially complete. This is the story of what happened along the way.
