Grateful for This Day

Good Morning!

Grateful for this day. 

A couple of things that may inspire you to take action:

In that never ending quest to remove folks from their cars,  squeeze more money out of folks who can barely afford it, and killing what is left of nightlife in our still beloved Little City,  SFMTA is soliciting feedback about their stupid plan to extend parking meter feed hours to 10 pm on weekdays as well as Sunday afternoons. 
If you go to their website, you can read some ridiculour sales pitch about how increasing parking meter hours is supposed to reduce carbon emissions and 
They are soliciting feedback - please write them to let you know this is a horrible idea at

Thanks to Leah Garchik for the heads up. 

Thinks that we need more high rises in Marin. 
If you haven't been paying attention, it's because you probably have been busy trying to survive. Get ready for the next California Gold Rush, or get ready to form a community housing trust. 
I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow may bring. 

I'm singing on May 20th. See you at The Saloon, 4 - 8 pm. 

Have the best day you can possibly have today.

The Landfill Diversion Project

"Landfill Diversion Project"

Start: Marin Open Studios 2023
Targeted Completion: Marin Open Studios 2024 

Artist Statement: A performance art journey into our attachment to "stuff, in holding on and letting go.

 Over the years, we collect things. I have reached the point where I find myself surrounded by so much "stuff" that it does not add value or serve a purpose, and feels overwhelming and blocking my creativity and life flow. 
Over this next year, I will work on adding value to these items and/or passing items on to someone who can find value in their current form. The main goal is to divert them from landfill and in the process, engage in the art of more creative living.
Join me on this journey, and perhaps we can learn from and inspure each other!

Earth Day/Weekend : Blues and Some Good News

 Hello All! 

Dropping a note in your inbox to say "hello" and to let you know that my friends and I are stoppin' by the old Saloon to play some tunes this afternoon! 

And, in the spirit of Earth Day/Weekend am happy to share that The Saloon has been recycling beer bottles for many of the 161 years in its existence! 

If you are in the neighborhood, come by and say "hi!" We will be there 4 - 8 pm.

Speaking of Earth Day, every day is earth day.

Spring Forward | March 12, 2023

Hello Everyone! 

It's that time of year again, when we are to move our clocks forward, shifting an hour of daylight in our social time construct from the morning to the evening. 

If you choose to follow this practice, set your clocks forward before you settle down to sleep. 

Hope the change doesn't hit you that hard on Monday morning.

We All Have Troubles

Riding Out the Storms in Life

 I've found it helpful to use storms as metaphors for life. They are great lessons for being present and living in the moment. 

If you are in the middle of a storm, whether literally or figuratively, you either have to shelter from it, or ride it out, depending upon where you are. 

Think about it.
