John Stewart--It Ain't the Gold
Long ago and far away. . .long before there were such things as blogs. . .long before there was an internet. . .there was an idea for a newsletter--quaint, now. . .Ben Blake and I wanted to publish a music and book review newsletter (and Ben, I swear, when I become more organized, I'll take a picture of the banner you just sent me not too long ago--it's here somewhere). . .blogs and newsletters have grown (maybe we have, maybe we haven't). This will be an attempt to recreate in spirit what we were after.
For Ben's sake, this blog has no affiliation with him whatsoever. He is still gainfully employed and has a reputation to keep. I'm looking for a new career (read employment--drinking wine with Anna--my wonderful neighbor next door--while my blushing bride goes to work every day--has netted me zero dollars--$0.00)--so this will be educational, fun, and hopefully bring a smile to someone's face and PG, but with my humor, verging on PG-13 at times. No NSFW stuff here. Did I mention I was looking for a employment? Anyone?
Along the way there will be bits and pieces of one of my "novels in the drawer," Dreamers on the Rise and two other books I'm working on. Works-in-progress with works-in-progress titles. One fiction: Permanent Declarations of a Temporary Love. One non-fiction: Someone Has to Sell the Wine: One Man's Search for Meaningful Employment, Mastering a G-Chord on the Banjo, and Discovering Zen Moments
Speaking of a work-in-progress--this blog will also be one--right out of the gates I admit to having absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Please be patient.
