I turned 55 this past October. Didn’t think that would be much of a big deal but this birthday affected me more than hitting 40 or 50. Those are supposedly the ones that cause more heartache but the big 55 was worse. Not sure why but it made me really think about mortality and exactly […]
If you’ve paid attention to media reports of David Cassidy’s passing you have probably heard the story of his last words. His daughter reported that the 70’s singer’s final words were “So much wasted time”. I can’t think of a sadder ending than this. The former teen heartthrob must have had quite the life growing […]
I’m reminded lately of time passing. It seems that birthdays come much quicker than they used to. Now we count friendships in decades rather than years. Old friends are on your mind more than they used to be. You care deeply about them and how their life is going. I recently had the immense pleasure […]
Tomorrow starts my mission trip to San Salvador, El Salvador. I’m looking forward to a new appreciation of this vast and varied world in which we live. I’ve been told these are the types of trips that will change your live for the better and give you a different world view. I’m open to that […]
I’m getting an early start on 2016 and the things I want to change both in my life and around me. Music – I recently bought some musical gear to rekindle my desire to write and record music. I’ll spend more time on that this year and hopefully I’ll post some songs before the year […]

If my math is correct I haven’t played an instrument since the early to mid 90’s, so more than 20 years. That changes this week. I have ordered a guitar, bass, drum machine, keyboard midi […]
Most of you who are friends on Facebook have seen some of the images we took while we were in NY this past week. These are some of the pictures I took. I’ll post more once Suzanne downloads them from her phone & camera.
We’ve all heard the old adage “Time flies when you’re having fun” or “Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted” (John Lennon). Funny, but it seems annual events come around quicker these days. My family and I enjoy the Germantown Charity Horse Show each June. It seems we have just finished emptying the cooler and […]
My Mom passed away back in 99, same day as the Columbine massacre. I think of you every day and wish you were here. Love you Mom.
This story is part of another one of my favorite memories from my youth. The back story: My Grandmother bought me a set of drums for my birthday when I was about 13-14. It was a sweet kit for the mid 70’s and I played it for hours on end. I guess it was 76 […]
