The end of another lightening fast year. A lot more silver threads among the gold (not that my hair was gold). My skin, doughier and slipping its mooring. My drooping left eyelid and the drooping left side of my lip are more and more…well, droopy. And so another Christmas, my 62nd or 63rd. And once […]
I don’t know how I neglected to post this, but better late than never, I guess. I’m overdue in reporting on my week as an instructor at The Road to Stanfest Songwriting Camp. Wow. What a year.
