So, I haven't been writing daily,  but I've been working pretty hard in the studio, this is what I've got so far:

Work is going along fine.  The weather has sucked.  Pretty broke now, so listening to old favorites on audible and living out of the freezer.......

Inspiration of the month:
Yoko Ono!

So it's Fall, and finally cooling off.  I've been working hard (well, hard for me) in the studio, and on my web-page.  I'm really struggling with my poverty though, and to add extra pressure, got wait-listed for the Baltimore ACC Show, which is usually my main money maker of the year, so.....

I think more than that, I've had to deal with the fact that I'm struggling with motivation when it comes to physical activity.  Ever since I had Lyme's Disease, I've felt tired and so I've gotten out of shape.  I need to start doing something.

Yay!!  September is is why I'm happy

the weather is bound to cool off (eventually)

had a great visit with Lexie, and will have another one with Lexie and Richie in a couple of weeks,

The piece above, is titled "family" and was inspired by a family gathering this summer, to commemorate my Uncle Chas.  Each of the houses represents my mother and her brothers and sisters.  The windows are their children.

Fall shows include:

Northampton, Mass. -

Philadelphia, Pa. -

Washington, DC -


Boston, Mass. -

Labor Day Weekend

so, here i am getting ready for Lexie to come for the weekend.  Of course, I have to clean like mad, which is why i'm blogging!!

it's been a fun summer, i did some okay work, went to Texas, and saw friends and relations i hadn't seen for eons......this is where i would post pictures of them, if i hadn't accidently erased them from my camera (dammit).

I'm trying to mainly come to turns with being poor, which is really hard.  I have to depend on a lot of people, which I've never had to do before, and I HATE IT!!  But, la la la, oh well.

February - March

February and March have been okay months.....two big shows, a breakdown in Georgia, that totally sucked me dry financially.  More tests it seems.  But Sky and I had a wonderful time at Universal Studios, I just wish that I had a camera to record my pale window, my boy on our adventures.

Reflections on a new year

It's hard starting out a new year with (what one hopes) is the saddest day you'll ever have.  But there it is.  I've had a few sad days.

My daughter's stillborn day.
The day I had to tell Sky about his father's death.
My own father's death.

But I have to interject something here, maybe off the point, because my mind is just rambling now.  I remember a few years, this same daughter called, on her way to the Emergency Room, could I meet her there?  I don't remember what was wrong, a miscarriage, I think, but it could have been something else.  I don't think I want to remember.  But I was also in a black-out drunk.  Because that was what I did in those days.  I don't remember much, but I know I made a drunken scene in the ER, I do know I was of no help whatsoever to Kathy.
So, I should be grateful (small mercies) that I could be there for her this time.  Hold her hand through the whole birth, knowing what was coming, but not knowing yet the look of anguish only a mother can have for her lost child.

I hope I never know that.  It's been my biggest worry with this child for the past 10 (12?) years.

I could write a whole lot more about anguish, because of Bill, of course.  But that rests for another day.
