Not necessarily related to hunting down open mic sessions across the United States, apart from the natural byproducts of it, which includes seeing expressions of civic pride and love of art in the cities we have been visiting. One on the trail thus far that most finds...

Last night in Asheville was how I envisioned this adventure going. Debra and I had crashed on the down-low in the parking lot of a Camping World parking lot the night before, even hooking electricity up to one of their demo posts. Pretty radical and subversive counter-...

Yesterday’s musical adventures included a three-hour studio session with Rick Watson, doing vocals for my aborning CD project, which is tentatively titled, “Funny Bones and Broken Hearts.” I sustained a nasty vocal injury in the 80s that crippled my voice pretty badly;...

It was another day of reconnecting with family, with all four siblings and Mom gathered together for the first time since Christmas. By the time everyone was deposited back at their domiciles, mine and Debra’s being my mother’s house, it was getting toward seven. One o...
