Well, here it is: autumn.

This year it seemed to me as if summer had just really arrived, and then, zoom, it was fall. I am getting used to the idea now. A crackling fire in the woodstove goes a long way towards encouraging my acceptance of the inevitable turning of the year. Less fur shed from my 4 legged friends is always nice, and listening to slightly spooky tales rather highlights the encroaching darkness of the season, even to make it seem welcome.

I've been listening to "The House of the Seven Gables" by Nathanial Hawthorne, in the event that you might perchance be taken aback by the new and unexpected development of rather noticeable wordiness in my composition, perhaps becoming evident as early as the previous paragraph.

As long as I don't start writing songs that way, I guess it'll pass.

Here are some upcoming performances:

In NY:

Medley's! I am thrilled about this. One of my very first Official Gigs was at Medley's in Corning, NY. Mary, the proprietor and chef, has moved the beloved Medley's to Prattburg, where it is now beloved all over again. The food is incredible. The atmosphere is charming. Every time I've been there it has been pretty full, so you might want to call and make a reservation, if you are coming.
I'll play til about 8:30.
