As noted in the header, these are notes on a musical, poetic and ordinary life. I have all of these things in various degrees every day.
For the poetic part: I am a poet. In my younger days I was quite prolific and produced a lot of work. But then other things took over and reduced my ability (and sometimes desire) to write as often as I did. But it’s still there, some days more than others, but it’s always there.
For the musical part: I enjoy live music, mostly made by the amazing musicians who are doing their thing here in San Diego. I lean toward the acoustic singer/songwriter scene and have made many friends within that scene. I used to host (2000-2008) one of San Diego’s premier house concerts that I called Meeting Grace.
For the ordinary (but still essential) part: My family is a constant in my life, and they do keep things interesting. I have recently struck out on my own once again after a 10+ year relationship. I moved to a downtown apartment for a drastic change of pace. I’ll try to keep up here with all my downtown adventures.
I work with words for a living and always try to keep a song in my heart.
