Ernest Hemingway once said, “There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Many people think writing is something certain people choose to do. Believe me, it is not a choice. At times it’s like your head fills with words and the only relief is to write them down…be […]

I guess it’s bound to happen when you’ve been listening to songs as long as I have. A line jumped into my head and I could not for the life of me remember where I’d heard it. Then I realized I had not just heard it, I’d written it. It was in this song from […]

Called Harvesting Light (from the album Beneath a Flagless Moon) it has to be one of the most positive lyrics […]

I have just completed a new book of poetry. No, not that new book, a new new book. I know Of Which We Have Spoken has only been available for a short time but the global pandemic gave me not only the time but also the inclination to write. The result is RIGHTING: The Pandemic […]

If I said this was a song about committing suicide I doubt people would flock to listen to it. So I won’t say that. Not exactly. What I will say is this. I was sitting in a hotel room in Barcelona having just visited one of Anthony Bourdain’s favorite tapas bars. I was thinking about […]
