Pinned oot

I borrowed a guitar & am haphazardly trying to learn to play this little toy. Finessing these tiny strings is harder than it looks. Hoping for lessons when *all this* passes next fall maybe?

Another roll of black & white film from Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. I learned a lesson. Thought I was taking advantage of the “golden hour” light, but the sun was shining straight on to the stones, which made the beveled lettering hard to read on a lot of these. Need to go do this section again around 1 or 2 in the afternoon.

What a couple of weeks. Haven’t posted in a bit, so I just wanted to report that we’re all healthy here at the house (me, wife, mother-in-law, son, son’s girlfriend) and hanging in there. It’s springtime which is a thing. I have work for now, though I’m piecing it together. Everyone else is retired or furloughed.

Lockdown & anxiety = all day to worry. I need structure.

It’s been a while- so here I am with my granddaughter- she was drumming on me which I apparently found hilarious. She’s a pretty happy little kid.

if you ask me, Achilles' Achilles Heel was his heel

Went to a party & there was a jam session on the patio. I played 3 songs, then Kyle Brock (!) played, & he didn’t have a bass with him so he played mine. It Has Been Anointed! Seriously, Kyle is great - he’s toured with Eric Johnson most of the last 20 years.

THE SEVEN SECRETS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE

1. Private school
2. Legacy Ivy admission
3. Nepotism hire
4. Seed capital from family
5. Club memberships
6. Personal assistant, nanny, ghost writer
7. Journalists who ask, "What's your secret?" and uncritically publish the answer

Here’s a rough mix (w. scratch fox) of a song I co-wrote 25 years ago, that is perhaps being resurrected & finished at long last: music.metafilter.com/8730/Fire

Moods:

1. High on Benadryl.
2. Clogged full o’ snot.

Drove 4 hours last night to go caving in the middle of Edwards county. 5 miles from the pavement & the cell service is immaculate. 😕 I kinda wish it didn’t work out here. Oh, also, it’s cold! (That’s not really a complaint)
