I have heartburn and what I mean by that
is that my heart is breaking
thinking of the relationships
I have betrayed over the years
(And continue to betray)
with whatever level of intention
I have brought to them
Creativity at its best is a matter of following and leading. I learned about “following and leading” from InterPlay where this is one of the basic forms or practices. The rules are simple enough: participants chose to either follow or lead at any given moment. When leading, I initiate. I start from nothing. When [...]
Last night, an awesome group of people (that I get to “play” with almost every week) were part of an incredible Samhain celebration at Columcille Megalith Park. Each of them — Anita, Brad, Brian, Heidi, Jill, Patti, [...]
Sunday was my birthday. I could have chosen to make it special by doing something completely different from normal. So, I did and I didn’t.

The butterfly effect.
I step out of my door early in the morning
And choose to let my foot drop to the ground

muse and music for the present moment
I look for ways to re-invigorate our human experience of life. I want us to drink up every moment with enlivening spontaneity. One of the ways I do this is with improvisation -- especially improvised music. With voice, guitar, percussion, piano (keyboards) and friends, I develop "in the moment" creations. I also play classical and pop music for the vast joy it brings to know the composers and songwriters of the past and present through their music.
