This is an open-ended blog ranging from news about my latest gigs and publications
to ruminations about politics, world affairs, culture and whatever piques my interest—or ire.

The Open House at Sylvaine's studio in the Bywater last night was sparsely attended but a lot of fun. Visitors seemed most interested in the 8-foot pecan log (a victim of Katrina) that she is sculpting into a kind of wavy obelisk with hammer and chisel, covering the floor with wood chips that would make great kindling if we only had a fireplace. We also offered some music along with the wine and cheese crackers, as Seva Venet joined me on guitar for a little jam session in the corner.
