Songs From Quarantine #5

How was your week?

Mine was pretty eventful! I celebrated the twin high holidays of Bicycle Day and 4/20. I became the voice of the poor dog who lives next door and is neglected by her owners. The neighbors did…

This Is the Good Stuff Vol. 8

What a week.

Annie and I both had big work-related stuff going on. The world continued its newly preferred state of near-constant agitation. We had a houseguest – who was lovely and amazing. But still, having even the most welcome…

My 2020 Vision

I have good eyes. My vision is pretty great. I do not require glasses. I can read stuff, with accuracy, from impressive, if not improbable, distances. I notice things in the periphery. Stuff like that. And I'm grateful. After all…

I Just Don't Know How to Describe My Music

You would think that by now I'd have come up with some go-to descriptors of my music. But you would be wrong. I am happy to tell people that I am a musician, songwriter and performer. But when they inevitably…

What Is Success?
