My love of music came first. Closing the bedroom door to my adolescent man-cave, I would grasp the corners of my LP album covers, admiring the art. Then I opened it to find the lyrics inside. Discovery in words. While the music has always come first in my world, I created this blog to honor the verse and the poetry. My music in the background.

One Word: Humid
In the humid apex of summer we languish
Taking days in stride, pacing ourselves
From shaded vantages we sense the rotating cicadian drone
The undercurrent of life shifting compost in the dew
