Welcome to my blog, and thank you for reading my “Maiden Voyage” post. My goal is to curate and invent content that entertains you and maybe even enlightens you! 🙂 Jazz, the creative process, suburban farm-to-table (I’m an avid gardener), these are a few of my favorite things …
Some of you already know I actively post on my Facebook page and Twitter about famous musicians’ birthdays, as well as quotes from them that I find inspiring or amusing. I will use this blog space to further reflect on some of these pearls of wisdom, the ones that are particularly germane to my own creative process and/or philosophy.
I also like to garden. And eat. And specifically, tend to a garden of things I can eat. I am blessed with a beautiful garden featuring not only raised beds where I grow fresh herbs and seasonal vegetables, but a veritable orchard of fruit trees that provide a bounty of fresh, organic produce year-round. My garden is a pretty good size by San Francisco Bay Area suburban standards, but by no means is it huge. So, I hope to offer tips on how to care for plants, how to harvest and store the fruits of your labor (I’ll try to keep puns to a minimum, promise), and share some of my favorite recipes and uses for various fruits and veggies.
A lesser-known fact about me is that I used to run an editorial business. One of my clients was Sunset Magazine … so, I’ve had more than a casual exposure to some of the best gardening and cooking information I feel is out there. I pored over copy every month in that publication’s production stage for the better part of 10 years. How could my experiences working for the West’s largest and longest-running lifestyle publication NOT influence at least some of my subject matter here? I loved my time working with Sunset.
I also love music … if you’ve found your way here, you probably know me as a musician. My main website has tons of info, music samples, video clips, and photos for you to peruse regarding my music. I figure I don’t need to spend too much of this introduction here regurgitating info that already accessible at the top and bottom of this and every page of my site. 🙂
Well, thanks for reading, and I’ll be posting something again in a couple weeks! Every other Wednesday, that’s the goal. Till then, keep swingin’, siempre en clave, dig it!
