Bridge Out on Memory Lane

In the movies, when the long-lost father/mother/brother/sister/whatever crosses paths with their kin, directors show us the visceral connection. Look in their eyes; they know something just happened. Nice for story lines, but no connection to reality.

3-Week Itch

Writing music always pulls emotions up closer to the surface. Weather changes make me happy. Or sad. Depends on what changes and how. Listening to my older daughter's music is always emotional. But really, I think what I'm feeling today is the 3-week itch. We've noticed as we travel that when we land somewhere for … Continue reading »

I Want to Live at the Edge of a Lake

After an event we drove around Lac Davignon. The causeway across the lake, the trees along the shore, the houses reflecting in the rippled surface . . . it's a memory I wanted to keep. We weren't talking about anything of consequence so I dropped in three of my songs which almost fit within the … Continue reading »

Scary Suspension Bridge Over Vancouver's Lynn Canyon

Catching up on some more video from our Vancouver trip. Someone told us about this swinging scary bridge 150 above the floor of Lynn Canyon, so of course, we had to go see. Fiona was very brave. I don't know what Sue was, but she seemed to like it. Here's proof that I crossed it. … Continue reading »

Montreal Itinerary

Looks like it's going to take 2 full weeks, 14 days, to make Montreal. Guess I'm not the road warrior I thought I was, but I just can't imagine pushing that hard for that long. Also, I guess I can't just drop in on my Mom, who I haven't seen in nearly 10 years, for … Continue reading »

The Real Challenge

I wrote a few days ago that the real challenges are inside us; the journey simply exposes them. Here's my challenge: guilt. And I don't even know, for certain, why. I feel like I'm cheating the system. Living without the cost of a house and its utilities is less expensive. I know a lot of … Continue reading »

Fiona Needs More Rooms

Yes, 'rooms', plural. As I was making lunch she sat at the counter telling me about how boring our house is. "I've seen every room in the house, and no matter how many times I look, there aren't any new rooms. I wish we could add two hundred million more rooms so I wouldn't be … Continue reading »

Sue's Thoughts of the Great Big Scheme

Where do I start? So much has happened in the last two weeks. We've had wonderful supporters and of course those who have their concerns. We've tried to address any concerns and realize that there will always be those who don't fully support our ideas. That's okay. I wanted to to step back and start … Continue reading »

The Reasons Haven't Changed

It's going like gangbusters. We have sponsors. We have prospects for work above and beyond what we'd normally be doing in August. We have what we'd normally be doing in August, still happening. Support. Cheers from the crowd. Enthusiasm and excitement. And I found myself thinking, boy, now we have to go. No we don't. … Continue reading »
