Death, You Are Not Welcomed Here

Death, you are not welcomed here You are not a traveler I long to see Your home is not a place I want to be. Death, you are not welcomed here Yours is not a story that need be told Yours is not a hand I wish to hold. Death, you are not welcomed here. […]

Petulant

What a small, petulant man He who would blame, besmirch, and smear. What a small, petulant mind He who would blister, belie, and slander   What a small, petulant child He who would belie, befoul, and soil What a small, petulant heart He who would blacken, blot and smudge   What a small, petulant man, […]

I Remembered You Today

It wasn’t a song, it wasn’t a sound It wasn’t a note of your hand in the box that I found But I remembered you today. It wasn’t your voice, it wasn’t this place It wasn’t a photo of your joy and your smiling face. But I remembered you today. I remembered the feeling of […]

Don’t

Don’t believe in the falsehood. Don’t look at the water and expect it to carry you. There is more than enough sunshine for us all. But don’t try to measure your own. Don’t look into the past too long. Don’t believe in the future too much and expect it save you. There isn’t as much […]

Half of the Country Did Nothing

47% of the U.S. did not participate at all in the “historic” 2016 election. Don’t worry, I’m not going to drone on, but I am still going to harp on this FACT: 47% of the country DID NOT VOTE AT ALL. That’s embarrassing, as it always has been, but it’s also important. When you say […]

Spotify is Not Going to Save Music

Get over it, streaming is not the savior…yet  This may be hard for some of you to read. I’m sorry. Spotify continues to tip their hand at their true intentions, and it is as I — and some others — have long suspected, not to save music. Hell, it may not even be involved with music at some point.

Saying Goodbye to Books

The brutal work of downsizing I’m not a hoarder. I’m not a clean a freak either. I’m somewhere in between, I suppose. What I definitely am though, is a softie sentimentalist. This week begins a necessary purge of my offices and studio. Anyone who is a creative has tons of little tchotchkes (like my Jesus […]
