INTRODUCTION

RON RAMDIN by Dalia Daza

Welcome to my personal web site which I hope will facilitate better communication between myself, friends and colleagues throughout the world. In these pages I hope to be able to give visitors, whether here by accident or design, as much information about my life and work as they require, whatever their purpose. I want to make more accessible to a wider audience samples of my work, news of work in progress and to put these in the context of a life which has spanned continents, been enriched by association with people from a huge diversity of professions and beliefs and been informed by the spoken word as much as by the written word.
