Sorry for the delays here, folks. I've gotten involved with someone new over the last six weeks, and it has become pretty serious and pretty mushy pretty quickly. So I've been spending less time here. I apologize for that, but I'm not going to apologize about having a real life again.
I'm still listening to music and reading, and that will continue. Still hitting-up my local Goodwills for cheap treasures. Latest scores include three Nick Drake CD's, Al Stewart's YEAR OF THE CAT, Creedence CHRONICLE best-of, John Lennon LEGEND best-of, Dylan's BLONDE ON BLONDE, Joni Mitchell HITS, Joan Armatrading best-of, Supertramp best-of, three Steely Dan CD's, best-of's by James Brown, Jim Croce, Warren Zevon, Roy Orbison, etc. Goodwill has been berry berry good to me.
Not finding any cheap CD's by Pink Floyd, Queen, Motorhead. Odd how that works.
My buddies at KPLU got their $7 million in public donations, so I assume their weekend "All Blues" program will be continuing. You can hear that great stuff from 6 p.m. to midnight Pacific Time each Saturday and Sunday over their streaming service at kplu.org.
I'm involved in yet another new writing project -- trying to turn the rock and roll novel I've been trying to write since at least 1982 into an after-the-bomb-drops fantasy/folk setting with magic and music and all the great friends I knew in and after high school. I'd like to make them all immortal -- especially since some of them are dead now. I'm 12 pages in, about 6,000 words, and already this writing just-for-fun is surprising me. So we'll see where it goes and I'll keep you posted.
Again, my apologies for not writing here more often. But I'm very happy and life is good ... and love is REALLY great. Hope all you out there are doing well, too.
