I am would-be writer who thirty years ago accidentally went to school for music instead.  Here I am trying to figure out whether it might be worth trying to change my mind at this late date.

What can you expect to find here? These topics among others may be touched on:

Books I like and why you should like them too.

Music I like and music I love to hate, with extensive and entertaining explanations as to why. Under this heading look for my open letters to WCRB, which are most unsporting because I don’t actually send WCRB the letters.

Essays on my experience of slithering helplessly down the far side of Mt. Fifty while trying to keep an expression on my face that says, more or less convincingly, “I meant to do that!”

Snippets of memories presented with the thickest, most sentimental emotional manipulation I can come up with; you’ll feel as if you’re reading through an amber filter and if I do my job right you might actually cry.

Weaknesses in my character revealed not to be faults but in fact to be endearing and even desirable quirks.

Lists that seem random but are in fact carefully contrived to give structure to unconnected things I would like to show off my esoteric knowledge about, such as for instance a list of things I like that begin with the letter P, or maybe a variation on that staple of the ‘everyone’s a poet!’ school of poetry, the acrostic poem.

Opinions. (Really?) But not political opinions. Not because I don’t have them, but because I’m a coward.

Rants, but not nasty ones. I can be very snarky but I never swear in print.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoy.
