Guy Bala began his writing with scribbles of words, then lines and phrases, scratched on cocktail napkins and the odd scraps of paper, a pattern began to emerge, like a musical score come to life, a performance of dance brought to movement, or an inspiring landscape swashed across a canvas Memories, Thoughts and Dreams became the book it is today. A Michigan Dearbornite, Bala began his performance work as a circus acrobat. From there, he quickly advanced to teaching gymnastics and choreographing performance pieces of various genres for his students. While living on the beaches of SE FL, Bala was engaged in 1991 to spearhead the recruitment and training of one of the largest professional (upwards of 800 active) volunteer corps in the U.S. at the Broward Center of the Performing Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He settled in Highlands, North Carolina, within the Nantahala National Forest. Here he introduced a poetry reading program, "Poets at the Podium," for the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts and penned "A Mountain's Sojourn". Today, Bala resides in Tampa, Florida with his two rescues, Aki and Rafiki. When not working on his next artistic venture, he can be found in the kitchen, crafting a new gourmet dish. A true bon vivant.
