Some days start out normal and then seem to stray.

Wedding gigs are a typical part of most string players' lives. They bring easy income without intense effort. In my current situation of financial incapacitation, I'm usually thrilled when offered a wedding within a cou...

After Thanksgiving, hearts are still heavy, but it's time to go back to work.

My voice is back but the cough is stubborn. Even after a couple of weeks it still plagues me daily. 

Even with the cough it's been a week of travel. Traveling back to the Mid West from Cali and...

This week of Thanksgiving had been a week I was looking forward to for some time. 

Finally, a vacation. Flying to see family in California, spending a few days in Yosemite National Park hiking in nature, and resting just because.

Today is another d...

The weekend is almost over. The silver lining to the cloud is that my awesome video editor in crime got a fever last night eliminating the long drive I was going to be making Sunday evening after my second concert. 

Why title this post 'A "Tank"'?

It's the nickname I've...

True to form, the more important things I have on my plate, the more my "brother" seems to like to hang out. My launch party weekend being no exception.

The day before my launch, so two days ago, I started to feel a bit week and a little icky but not bad. Then yesterday...

It has been a long road...a very long road. The blog I used to mostly regularly maintain,, has not been updated for nearly a year. It has been abandoned for multiple reasons, but the biggest reason has been to be able to commit the time...
