Name Me

Track 5 on Watershed. Comments?

I like the way the song builds, ebbs and builds again. Guitarist Chris Freeman did some great work on this tune. I'm not in love with some of the guitar tones -- especially since Freeman has become such a tone-master in the last few years (besides being a genius player and very good composer).

Art Cards with Creatures

Here's a close up of a few of the Creatures in Context series, as well as a shot of another card I did with a Nativity Theme (which sold over the holidays).

After all these years

To see what you see
After all of these years
Outside my fierce belief
I defended through my tears

Are there fields beyond these walls
Gardens planted, shadows fall on houses
Could I find myself out there
Could I make it out
of patterns I am now aware of

(from one of a number of songs I'm writing based on sabbatical experiences and changes)

A Chance Encounter

I ran into a kid in a music store. Conversation. I gave him the Watershed CD. The story ends. Usually.

This time the kid had a dad (well often that's the case, but this dad was unique -- stay with me now).

The dad likes the music.

The dad blogs about said music on his interesting, well-written blog (a much LESS common phenomenon).

(He's prolific, peace-loving, intelligent, conservative... hmmm, all those things always go together, right?... I feel honored, awkward, and gleeful to have my music featured on it (he posts sacred music on Sundays). I love 2012.

Steampunk Angel TShirt

I designed a steampunk angel tshirt. I like bringing together words I made up and something I drew (and now you can wear it). You can buy it if you like. The Etsy site continues to emerge -- I'm slowly but surely adding stuff.
