Et in Arcadia Ego

I am fighting for the things I love.


It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling…

My trip to Colorado Springs to visit my folks.


Can’t wait to get out of the city for a bit.

Prolific alt-country songwriter Ryan Adams recently sat down with Fender to discuss why the Princeton Reverb is his go-to amp for recording.

Two of my favorite things.

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat [or drink], or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
26Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?
27Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?
28Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin.
29But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.
30If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith?
31So do not worry and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or ‘What are we to drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear?’
32All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
33But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.
34Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.

—New American Bible, Gospel of St. Matthew
