I am such a bad bad bloggart.....

And I am ok with that. I hope you are I have alot of respect and not a little awe for folks who can maintain a web connection for years at a stretch and can document all the odd and wonderful things around them, I am sure that with enough lightweight technological gee-gaws and thing-a-magigs and whack-a-doodles I too could twitter to you day and night with the ease of simply thinking it onto the web for all too see, a brain cam is months away, I am sure of it.... That said I have seen some beautiful places and made some wonderful music over the last month and a half, I do really wish I had a way to share it with you. Hopefully I can replace my stolen camera sometime soon, but I did do a couple of radio interviews, I am hoping to get at least one that I think was recorded uploaded as a podcast, if I am successful I will post a link. I worked with some great musicians, my friend Chris Campbell and Blake Moore put together a great group of musicians for me to work with at our gigs.

But for better or worse, though it was hard coming home from the gorgeous weather in Northern California, I am so happy to be back with my dear Amoeba and my 25 year old zombie undead beagle, Lucy the Dog. I have a lot of great gigs this month and I hope you can check them out!!
