  • Manifest Destiny’s Child

    Clear cold water crashes against the craggy coast and sprays barking seals lazing on white beaches. Dramatic cliffs drop to sea level, giving way to farmland filled with avocados, strawberries and artichokes.

    A few of my hopes for 2013:

  • dream breaking

    I was very sad to recently learn of the passing of my friend Stephen Adams. He was the leader (in multiple ways) of the Dreambreakers, one of my all-time favorite musical collectives. The Dreambreakers – and Adams in particular – had love for, commitment to and belief in the music they played–British Invasion, psychedelia and […]

I feel like that. I have a sense of nervousness, the jitters, something, and I think it’s more than coffee. […]
