There is a spot of rain this morning. Just a touch. It is refreshing. Cooling. I hear a rooster crow in the distance. It is a quarter past 10 in the morning. The old boy must be off schedule or have some important news I cannot translate. I do not speak chickenese. Andie is at the Barber Shop. Kayden is building an army of Lego's to play Indiana Jones based on the stories I have told him about the movies. I hear the dryer tumbling and feel the wet coolness of the morning air slipping through the window screens. There is an A Minor 11th chord playing on the wind chimes outside. I am planning the day or thinking of planning the day or just day dreaming. All of the above is the truth. Overs by Paul Simon is playing in my head. Snippets of Meet Joe Black are drifting in the background of my mind. My coffee is cold yet I still sip away at it. I sit waiting. Waiting. For what? Perhaps Peace of Mind. A new song. Purpose. Right now that is calculating with Kayden how many hours, minutes and seconds in a day.....
Missing California in some ways.

House hold chores today. Pulling these strange alien looking vines off the fence at the back of the property, painting, measuring and cutting molding for the bathroom. Kayden and I were going to go "mining" for crystals but it required an early departure from home to ease the time in Friday traffic. It didn't happen. It seems about suppertime every day I feel tired and ready to sleep. I tried meditating in the middle of the night as I lay awake unable to sleep. I suck at meditation! My focal time is shorter than my memory and that is crazy short. There is a multilane highway of simultaneous thoughts running. I still my mind and attempt to pray or just feel the stillness and a rocket fueled barrage of thoughts ensue. It is as if I dropped the reins of a team of runaway horses pulling the wagon I am on. Woh doesn't work. Still I will continue to continue as best I can. Hopefully new songs are brewing in the back ground.

I am performing two Thursday nights in July at The Wild Vine Bistro . It is an acoustic mellow show. July 18th and 25th.
I am working on a to do list and need to set time lines if I am ever to get anything done. Kayden is playing with toys next to me. I manage to grab my guitar and get a lick or two in through out the the day. I have been straightening up the studio as it is in a sad state. Just getting it cleaned up feels good. It gives me more of a sense of well being.
Last night a sack of garbage was left inadvertently on the porch. The raccoons thought it was a fiesta and made fine work of spreading it all over the deck. I heard them partying last night but thought they were only eating cat food. Oops! All clean now.
It looked like rain today but the sun has once again broken through. It is a peaceful day in Machias.
I feel songs are coming.

Sending out the love
