A Drum Circle Arrangement of “Galang”

Friday, January 9th, 2009

I’m imagining some possible scenarios where I could lead a drum circle into a sort of performance.  Most facilitated drum circles enter into spontaneous or random rhythms and are then led to compose the music.  I would really like to lead people (sometimes naively) into known songs.  There’s an extra sense of excitement when you [...]

Zune 30 Pandemic

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Oh, good grief! I awoke this morning to find my Zune in a less than pleasing way. I was concerned that the number of times I’ve dropped the device had finally caught up with me and I was paying the ultimate price. However, I decided to check out what was being said online [...]

A Comment on the Weather

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I got a Christmas card from the nice folks at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – the Climate Witness division. You may recall the article I wrote for them concerning the pitiful state of Lake Lanier (speaking of which, the scientific review of my story is now available). The card reminded [...]

Would you like fries with that hamburger? Took a spill on the bike this morning and attempted a base-slide into work. Didn’t work, I’m out! #
I think my pants are damp with lymph fluid – that’s going to suck later when I have to peel them off. #

@mcottmeyer You missed a good time digging post holes at my house! Maybe next time. #
@brianb You’ll go blind playing with that thing. #
@HamWithCam Their balance bar routine was stunning – better than the Chinese scores. We’ll see if it helps their floor scores. #
67°F this morning. That makes for a chilly bike ride [...]

The First Day at School

Friday, August 8th, 2008

Yesterday was Balthazar’s first day of school. It started early that morning and the whole family was up for the affair. We drove him in and walked him to his class. It’s one of those “big steps” in a child’s life. I am excited about the idea of him becoming independent [...]

Tastey Nuts

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I’m a fan of the seed and nut family, as many can attest. I maintain a supply of them at my desk at work for the occasion of snacking, which comes regularly. There are also infinite jokes to be told that never get old:
Hello everybody. I have brought my nuts for everybody [...]

News from Philadelphia

Monday, July 21st, 2008

People really get into their American history in ye olde American colony, Philadelphia.
The U.S. Postal Service – the first one – flies no flag. At the time of its inception, there was no flag to fly under.
We saw a young man riding his bicycle with the Libery Bell tattooed on his forearm. I think a [...]

Reading Boy

Monday, January 21st, 2008

My son, at nearly 5 years of age, is big into the whole good vs. evil concept. He loves superheroes, Star Wars, and nearly every incarnation of fictional character one can imagine serving one of the aforementioned roles; good or evil. We played “superheroes” most of the day, Sunday. I was “The [...]
