A beautiful sunny day out there today. Only thing on the calendar is a luncheon at a Thai place here in town. We usually do Joe Rogers Chili but it's nice to try something different every now and then- especially since I'm one of those folks who settles in and does the same damn thing over and over again, ad nauseum. Eats at the same restaurant, orders the same meal...
Two gigs near the end of the month. One is with the Samba Llamas, and I rehearse with them this coming Monday. They even asked for a tune of mine to include in their set list. Well hell yes, son. We can do that.
Just haven't been in a YouTube frame of mind lately, as far as any new posts. Plenty of stuff to check out though, as I've posted like a madman(when I'm hot, I'm hot). At some point I know I'll be back with a vengeance, but for now I guess I'm on hiatus. Still practicing, at any rate..
Still working on my new blog at Roger U Roundly. I've been editing what's already on paper, and writing more in my head. Like I said, this one is more personal, so it's tough dredging this stuff up from my psyche.
Just like YouTube, there may be something in there on my blogsite you'll like, so feel free to check it out.
Along with testosterone and melanin, I think I'm losing ambition as I settle further into retirement. Music is no less joyous, as far as playing and writing, but playing out is something I've pared down to occasional appearances. And making new CDs has kinda ground to a halt.
But I feel calmer. There are and probably always will be things that get my dander up, but in between those 'lapses', it's getting more peaceful. That's actually a pretty good trade: melanin, testosterone and ambition for peace of mind. Not a perfect state of Sahaj Samadhi mind you, but mellower than I've been.
Boy howdy, this is a lot of tongue-wagging. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Time to move on for the day. Happy Thursday to you! More later.
