Sunshine Jackson dreamt of being a Solid Gold dancer but was too young and too round. She roller-skated her way through high school until she finally fulfilled her life long dream of becoming a waitress. She waited and waited and waited?. to be discovered, like most waitresses. Discovered for what? Who knows? Now, finally, she is a Gallery Owner/Photographer who still loves to disco.
