About the Book

It is always difficult to write about oneself with objectivity, yet I have written my own autobiography called Indelible Memories and found it was simply a stream of consciousness. I have lived a freedom-loving life, where I have been extremely dedicated and diligent in my life choices of dance, mime, clowning, and yoga. I have also experienced motherhood twice and have been blessed with wonderful and creative daughters and now two gorgeous granddaughters. I spent some time in 1960s living with the nomads, an indigenous community in western Australia, who lived independently from white domination. They were guided by a great man named Don Macleod, who fought for their rights of fair payment and working conditions. I have travelled to America and Europe, but my main interest and passion have been my many trips to India, experiencing the extraordinary spiritual culture still remaining intact. Lessons learned on issues such as life and death, the law of karma, and one’s life’s purpose.

About the Author

Why did I decide to become Henry Maas’s biographer and produce this book on his creative life? The idea began to develop when I found one of his scrapbooks of past shows of the Busby Berkley with Sam Angelico, Peaches La Crème, and Noel Busby. So much history and it was slipping into the abyss with no hope of recovery. This is how the memoir began to take shape. I searched through archives of photographs, torn and battered reviews, and very few other details, although Henry certainly helped with memories. Having been fortunate to witness Henry Maas during the last thirty years with his self-expression and performance, both with the music and singing, as well as his paintings, it has always amused and impressed me how unattached he is to anything he has achieved in this life.
