Keller Williams: The Child Who Would Not Grow-Up | Review

Writers need inspiration. Second to inspiration, writers need misery; at least the writers I identify with.

Jam in the Dam | Amsterdam, The Netherlands | March 2012

There's a lot to be said for just dropping off the grid.  I'm not talking 'move to a desert island' kind of grid dropping.. But the temporary, and temporal sort; where one's mind, body and spirit can take a break from the burdens of life.

At Home with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

It’s everybody’s birthday at an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros show, where several dozens of fans are welcome on stage to dance and take over the vocals, more or less, as they are struck with the desire to do so.
