24 Aug

I guess I’m officially “old” or something now. Empirically, when considering actuary tables, I’m on the downslope now, whatever that means. I don’t feel that old, at least mentally, I don’t feel any different than I did ten years ago. Physically, the body is sometimes letting me down, but for some reason, I’ve had to […]

One of the things I’m doing this week at the office is reading and evaluating all sorts of documents I can’t talk about because of the many non-disclosure agreements I signed saying I wouldn’t.

For all […]

Things are quiet in this space. That’s because I’m busy learning songs and earning new calluses as I play lots and lots of bass guitar. The big gig is coming, and I am working dilligently to not embarass myself. my goal is to be off-book for two dozen songs or so by the end of […]
