Catching a Breath: 10 Things I’ve Learned in the Past Month

I have had a lot going on lately. There have been quite a few life changes and believe me, I’ve wanted to write a coherent blog about every single one of them. But I haven’t been able too. Maybe because I’ve been busy using a pen and a few pieces of scotch tape to jerry ...

Philly, I Bid You Adieu

In Mid-August of 2006 I packed up a U-Haul trailer, hooked it up to my blue Chevy Blazer and headed south for Philadelphia. The rearview mirror was full of Portland, Gram, my family, my band and the boats & crew of Casco Bay Lines. It was Saturday. I would be starting graduate school on Tuesday. ...

You’ve Changed- Making Sense of Let’s Start a Cult by Rustic Overtones

I think the problem is the length. That’s what she said. No I’m serious. So is she. Moving on, I’m talking about the new Rustic Overtones album, Let’s Start a Cult, and how my problem with it, the main hang up I have about it, is the length. It’s too short. That’s the stumbling block. ...

Trying to Move On: 5 Things to Think About Today Besides the Super Bowl

All right, the Super Bowl is over. Cue…sports angry! But it’s Monday and unfortunately life has to go on. The Bachelor is on tonight. It’s not all bad. But still, I’m baffled by the number of people who call out sick today. First because of the balls they must have to do it and second ...

Selinsgrove by Sunset: matchbox cars, party jams and door knobs

At 10 o’clock at night I found myself locked in the bathroom. This particular Monday had started much earlier- around the usual time with all the usual tricks. There wasn’t much to report. Traffic was a tad bit heavier than normal, but nothing to get too worked up about. And as for most of the ...
