About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Pine Cleaners

It is Saturday morning, April 9th. The Sun is shining and it looks to be a most promising day here in the North Country. The photo presented here was taken in Watertown as I was leaving Musicology (the music store I teach at) after my guitar lessons. I love city scenes such as these. What helps this image is the late afternoon Sun. One man's eyesore is another man's art.

I would like to go there again at the same time of day with a video camera and wait for someone to pass through the scene.
Today I am laying guitar at the Taste of the Town at the state office building in Watertown. The event features 35 area restaurants and raises mone for the Victims Assistance Center. I volunteered my time for the event. That's not insignificant because I locked the date out for weddings and guitar lessons. I am hoping to showcase my guitar playing for these restauranteers. Hopefully I catch one or more of their ears and they ask me to play in their establishment. Otherwise, it's just a good opportunity to practice in public. From there I am going to play for a bit at Musicology. They are celbrating their first year anniversary being in business. I hope all is well in your world.

Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.
