Sometimes I wonder....

Sometimes I wonder if having a strong and robust ethical code in this ethically-vacillating and relentlessly narcissistic world will eventually mean I'll need to find a nice mountaintop (overlooking the sea, I hope) to which I may retreat...making music to the rhythm of the sea-waves and painting the color of the whispering wind.

asongbird's double life

Working on two books at once just now and writing songs again in between...

Off to discuss "Zealot" at our nonfiction book club soon. Interesting book, very well-written, but not really anything new. The theories he presents are old ones. Several books on our shelves basically say the same thing. Going to pick up his mentors' books after this.
Trying out the new ITunes Radio. Some bizarro things ended up in our 60s British Invasion channel, but the LA Rock Scene 60s and 70s had some delicious surprises, live versions of familiar songs that were really interesting. Contemporary Classical also had some "Huh?" selections in it.

Still love Pandora, though, which served us up some really cool stuff too.

Life is good

Beautiful day; setting up a new gig, walk with my honey, cutting up credit card offers, reading, music, great lunch, cooked half by Jim, half by me. Life is good.

The deeper we sound, the further down into the lower world of the past we probe and press, the more do we find that the earliest foundations of humanity, its history and culture, reveal themselves unfathomable.--Thomas Mann
