Lately, I have
  • been writing songs
  • been directing events
  • been getting some sun
  • been nursing a badly wounded heart
  • been pounding my blues away on Kyle - my new toy djembe given to me as a gift by the other half of Kokum, Konrad a.k.a. Piper (love you!)
  • been watching a lot of Discovery and National Geographic
  • been busy relearning the piano to help me write songs
  • had my hair shaved
  • had Kokum's logo tattooed on my arm
  • been seriously considering getting a permanent tattoo
  • been living free and easy - no tight schedules!
Whooo! I love my life!

The Chronicler's Creed

Where there's water and sun, where there are friends to see or new people to meet, where there's something new to learn, experience, or do, where there's life, there I will be.


Y fue a esa edad... Llegó la poesía
a buscarme. No sé, no sé de dónde
salió, de invierno o río.
No sé cómo ni cuándo,
no, no eran voces, no eran
palabras, ni silencio,
pero desde una calle me llamaba,
desde las ramas de la noche,
de pronto entre los otros,
entre fuegos violentos
o regresando solo,
allí estaba sin rostro
y me tocaba.

And it was at that age... Poetry arrived
in search of me. I do not know, I do not know where
it came from, from winter or a river.
I do not know how or when,
no, they were not voices, they were not
words, nor silence,
but from a street I was summoned,
from the branches of night,
abruptly from the others,
among violent fires
or returning alone,
there I was without a face
and it touched me.
