Carrying On

It’s wet outside, we’re not getting snow in Middle Tennessee like surrounding areas. I hear birds boisterously carrying on as if it were an early spring morning. Funny thing is, last Saturday morning everything was iced over, it was freezing outside, yet their mode was exactly the same. Maybe the birds have it right, nothing’s…

More Than I Can Chew?

So, to take last week’s thread to the next level, my first step at compartmentalizing goals and efforts is to have a weekly check in every Saturday morning over coffee, working around writing sessions, etc. This is not about being ritualistic, but that which brings about gradual improvements of self, as well as capabilities and…

Wring the Sponge

Pinch me, really, almost three months since moving to TN? Yes, in less than two weeks, we’ll turn that corner. So, what’s been happening, or not? Well, given we didn’t think the move was even going to happen as of mid-to-late June, shifting into high gear to pack ourselves and purge “stuff” along the way,…

29 Days

Not quite a month, but close enough. That’s how long it’s been since making the move from NC to TN. My body and mind pushed to unanticipated extremities, but here we are, in Fairview, TN. Population roughly 10K, and some 30 miles from downtown Nashville. It’s all still a bit strange, trying to reestablish routines,…

What I Know

What I know is very little. I sense, assume, perceive, plan, adjust, and seek… but I know very little. I know what I believe, what I like, who I like, who I love, all subjective to anyone but me. And I know I have pretty good instincts, at times to levels of disappointment way in the red….

Nobody Wins

Of late, I’ve put a lot of effort into skirting the edges of social media and the news. Every now and then I get my feelings onto paper, in hopes of a song. The emotions are strong within me, I’m torn, confused, angry, and very much sad for our country, and the world we live…

Happy To Be Here

I don’t watch sports intently, though I do generally get sucked in when it’s playoff time or like now, when March Madness is down to the wire. Last night I heard one of the coaches from a winning team, don’t recall which (told you I don’t watch sports intently), say that in previous years they…

No Uncertain Terms

It’s been a long time coming. And I’m thrilled to finally have pulled together the right combination of musicality for a song that I honestly believe has a dreamer’s chance at being published, maybe even cut. My learning process over the last few years is summed up in this song titled “I’ll Know When I…
