the return and the interview


After a wonderful 42 day trip, we have finally returned to Dallas.  We spent time in New Mexico, Colorado, Iowa, and Illinois.  We saw kids and grandkids and friends.  I also wrote eight songs, both music and lyrics.  I made a video on the back porch of one of our New Mexico houses. You can find it under videos on this website.  The beauty we lived in on the our trip was truly inspirational. 

Kunal Dixit and Tim Simenc, recent graduates of St. Mark's, made a professional quality video interview about my musical origins and inspirations that I posted on the home page of this website.  Enjoy!

The Good, the Bad, and the Good


Something good: I'm on vacation in New Mexico.  We went into the Taos Mesa Brewery and on a whim I got the email address of their booking agent.  I sent him an email and told him about my website and the new CD and asked if he had any cancellations or spaces for a possible performance.  He emailed back and offered me an afternoon slot on the patio on July 4th.  Pretty cool because they get big time acts in there. 

Something bad: Through miscommunication when I arrived I had no sound reinforcement.  I played for about 30 minutes, realized no one could hear what I was doing, and stopped playing.  Hmmm

Something good:  I've written three new songs on this trip.  One of them appears in a YouTube video that I will post.
