"WHAT'S NEW" return to October
"Time, the philosophers tell us, is entirely a construct of Man
as we feel the change of season and realize the sun has
trekked across the sky several times, soooooooo, we
began to count those journeys and decide how
long an hour is and group the hours into days
to fit within the journeys of the sun we see,
and then we name the days so we can talk to
each other about them without having to refer to
"three suns across the sky ago", and then we gather
those days into months, and the months into years, and
we name the months for the same reason we named the
days and we number the years because, after all, we are
an organized bunch, we humans, and have always
been inclined to enjoy butterflies better when
they are on little pins in a box than when they are out cavorting in the wild because we are too busy,
too civilized and, let's be honest, probably too out of
shape to ever even see a butterfly out in the wild, unless
it's one of those little plain ones who sometimes come
around our own backyards to settle on the branches of
the flowering shrubs we have planted in such a way as to
imitate their natural placement in the woods because while we enjoy seeing butterflies, we are not apt
to go wandering into the woods in search of
them as proper footwear is never at hand when you need it, and there is absolutely no time in today's world for such crazy nonsense anyway".

"The hot sun has cooled a bit and the flash of thunderstorms has finally come again to signal the closing weeks of summer in my little corner of South Carolina. Our region has had unusual weeks upon weeks of temperatures soaring above 100 degrees and my thermometer, my garden and my patience in general has been taxed to their very limits.
Now comes a season of travel as I get to perform on the road in some of my favorite places. Mid-September will find me back in my native state of Massachusetts, visiting with friends and family, sipping coffee at my old haunts and giving shows with Mike Slahetka and his band, "Shakin' All Over". I'm really looking forward to it.

Once we get into October and November, I'll be down south in Florida and up north in Canada. If you're in either of those regions, check the SHOWS page for updates & specific information.
