Title of this entry comes from a song about observances.

I just came back from a test run to Tampa Int'l Airport seeing as that I'll be flying out of there on Saturday. It is very typical for me to "test" driving to a location before going there for real to do whatever it is I have to do. Even before I had GPS I always did this. I don't consider it being over-cautious, but rather exercising the tried-and-true motto of the Boy Scouts.

It is easy to see why TPA is one of the best airports in the country. It's easy to get around it, literally. You can circle the entire airport and if you miss your location, you can easily circle it again or as many times as you need to so you can get where you need to go. TPA puts up a darn good argument against IDD, which to date is my favorite airport.. but I dunno, TPA's lookin' pretty good. 🙂 I'll be sure to write about it later, with photos hopefully.

train wreck / inside the author's mind

This Saturday (September 2) I will be flying out to Ohio where my mad skills will be utilized to complete Brent Simon's new album. And no, don't ask me what it will be called - even I don't know that part yet. 🙂

The only potential issue (but not really) is that I might be stuck at the airport (in Ohio) waiting for a ride to get out of there for two hours. Maybe. Maybe not. Don't know what's going to happen, but in the worst case scenario, two hours out of my life waiting for a ride won't kill me. It might be insanely boring, but it won't kill me.


One of my readers has crossed the bridge from just reading my site to speaking with me on the phone. She noted indirectly that it's a bit surreal when you physically speak to someone after reading their blog, because it's like you know the person before you even talk to them.

Connecting to someone through words on a (web) page gives me a wonderful feeling because it let's me know I'm doing something right. 🙂 There are lots of blogs out there which at best feel disconnected; you just don't get a feel for the author whatsoever. But when you read an author's words and are able to visualize and connect - that's just plain frickin' cool.

'Nuff said. 🙂


True to my word I got a new music release out this month, entitled Marque. I decided to do another classical thing and did three songs like I did on Piano Power!

Like before, the mp3's are at the ready for download, so check 'em out.

And by the way.. if you like the new tunes, please let me know. Thanks. 🙂
