Are You a Book-Lover?

Righteously Indignant

I find myself wanting to be angry over the death of my youngest daughter.  I want to be angry.  ANGRY!  But at who?  Not my daughter.  Not at my wife.  Not at any of the rest of our family.  Not at friends or the community. The devil, our adversary.  That’s who I want to be... Continue Reading →

Hear Yourself Talk

Something I read recently: Being a musician … is first and foremost about observation.
