Gizmo’s Lullaby

My song, “Gizmo’s Lullaby” dropped a year ago and is available wherever you get your music.

I wrote it to celebrate the birth of my son. My wife and I didn’t find out the gender during the pregnancy so we didn’t know whether we were going to have a son or daughter. It felt strange just saying “the baby” the entire time so I gave him a nickname. It started during the first ultrasound we had. The image on the screen looked like a Gremlin to me (remember that 1984 movie?) So, I started calling the baby “Gizmo” and the name stuck.

Ideas Float, Grab Them While You Can

Denise Jaden has a theory.  She believes that “ideas float in the atmosphere, and they are fair game for anyone to grab and make use of.”

This is sometimes referred to as the collective unconscious. It seems to be something that we can all tap into. There are so many ideas out there and if we don’t act on them, someone else just might.

Jaden caution us to, “Make use of your ideas, or somebody else will!”

In her book, Story Spark, she gives writers a few exercises they can try to get some of their ideas on the page.

Still Trail Running in January?

I used to have an off season when it came to running. I never like running in the winter. So, it’s kind of surprising that last year, at this time, I went for a run outside.
