It's the new year and nearly 6 months since my last post. I would apologize but the words are empty. The first two lines of my last entry sums up very well why I keep a blog and unfortunately, the conditions to provide the tales and inspiration to others have not found...

Land life woes have certainly taken their toll. I've wanted to write so many different times, but I like to write about exciting and interesting things to inspire others, not gain pity or become depressed. 

Recently, I have a few pictures that caught my attention to sha...

In the last three months I've had to do some scrambling and sorting to figure out where and what and all the good stuff that comes with that. It's been days of extreme exhaustion, falling asleep with the light on, only crossing one menial task off the to-do list at a t...

Now, I work out a lot and love doing so. I'm a big hiker in AK, an avid mountain biker, love to play cont...

Yes, technically I can get in an airplane and fly, but that's not the point and you know it.

Now back to topic.

What in the world has kept me busy for over two months since my last post? Work. Silly question. 

In order to survive, it's been back to the orchestra circuit a...

Not in real life sillies....

Still no permanent address for mailing purposes. 

But, I've officially moved my blogging from here to!

Hurray! Excuse for a party!!

If you enjoy reading what I've written so far here on Pla...

This blog entry might be more interesting if I was eluding to a symbolic life lesson, but I'm not. My car battery just died; plain and simple.



Currently I'm driving around the MidWest playing a couple of Christmas symphony gigs. This last weekend I was in T...
