It’s not about a girl…. It’s about a ‘68 Chevy Impala. I saw this car at a car show in Maine this summer. This is my dream car….not because of value, but because of nostalgia. Growing up, we had a ‘68 Chevy Caprice, and it was EXACTLY like this car. I remember a lot ofContinue reading “the one that got away.”
Eight things I’m thankful for at the beginning of my day: Jenn Lauryn Katy Clarity Sunshine Music A job where I feel valued and respected LOVE.
Yesterday was about getting the negativity out of my brain and on the page….today is a step forward.
“I’m still standing, better than I ever did. Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid.” I won’t mention you by name, but I will respond to your venomous comments, because I doubt you will see this anyway. Yes, I love music – I don’t sit in with other bands to say “LookContinue reading “for “miss vitriol 2019”…”
“You take the high road, and I’ll take the low. It’s time that we parted much better so.” Although I’m proud to be an alum, and I’ve participated in a few Homecoming events, I have more bad memories than good ones, and it’s not a part of my life anymore.

I TOTALLY started playing in a band for this reason, and I offer no apologies. In high school we triedContinue reading “it’s truly all about the music.”
This nickname was given to me by Jeff Butash, when we worked together at Prudential Investments in 1997. I had all but forgotten about it for 22 years. This spring, I started playing with the Ryan Forrester Band in the DC region, and I decided to bring this nickname back. As this band has someContinue reading “L Train.”
Prince. Grape soda. Barney. (OK, maybe that’s pushing it.) Purple……I don’t have any bad feelings about purple…..from a music and color point of view, I always hear a Gb Major 7th chord in my head when I think about purple, but I digress….purple is very peaceful and serene, and there’s something truly badass about seeingContinue reading “purple.”
“You gotta know when to hold ’em Know when to fold ’em Know when to walk away And know when to run.” This is the perfect description of how I currently feel about social media. After 10 years of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat, I had enough. I had nearly 2,800 “friends” – people fromContinue reading “kenny rogers was spot on.”
