C’est moi!

So, I turned 40. And that amounted to nothing much different except that we had a nice excuse to take a break on a couple of days to celebrate. Nothing was really speaking to me in terms of ways to properly mark the occasion until I learned that Buddy Wakefield had booked a show in … Continue reading C’est moi!

One Month Down…

We're one month into 2017. Dani and I have been diligent in our work, although we have also made sure to get enough fun in to keep ourselves from going crazy. It's all been book work, online research, copious note taking and working with software. But the real, physical side of things are beginning to manifest. … Continue reading One Month Down…

Picture Pages – Volume …Since September

When people ask what we've been up to, I find I'm always a bit dumbstruck and I can rarely enumerate more than a few items before trailing off and wondering to myself what HAVE we been up to lately. On the one hand, I know we're keeping plenty busy because I feel remarkably well-adjusted at … Continue reading Picture Pages – Volume …Since September

Not Eating the Couch

"I firmly believe that we all need to find something to do in our lives that stops us from eating the couch." ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear Rest assured, the couch is safe. For now. What Ms. Gilbert is referring to in the quote above is how a creative mind that isn't busy … Continue reading Not Eating the Couch

Time Marches On. Strap On Your Boots.

It's a little hard to keep in mind all the aspects of what has been transpiring here for the past three or so weeks. It's also hard to keep up on writing with everything else that's going on - to say nothing of the things that still need to happen before winter! Since we last … Continue reading Time Marches On. Strap On Your Boots.

Big Deal(s)…

Winter is a big deal in Maine. Like a boogeyman almost. Many times we've mentioned we're new to Maine only to have people grow a little quieter and ask "Have you spent a winter here?" From some of the looks in their eyes you wonder if they're thinking "Are these people going to go crazy? … Continue reading Big Deal(s)…

A Change of Age – A Change of Season

It's been a couple of weeks since we did an actual blog post. That was our anniversary of beginning the Ambling Full Tilt journey. What has happened since has included another anniversary of sorts; an "annibirthary" as Dani calls it. I'm now 40. From the day before, to the birthday, to the day after I … Continue reading A Change of Age – A Change of Season

Mushaboom

...And we'll collect the moments one by one I guess that's how the future's done How many acres how much light Tucked in the woods and out of sight Talk to the neighbours and tip my cap On a little road barely on the map Old dirt road Knee deep snow Watching the fire as … Continue reading Mushaboom

And for Our Next Trick…

Finding time to write is very difficult when you work yourself to exhaustion every single day. In my last post I resorted to the last thing a writer wants to resort to: a bulleted list. Yet so much happens every single day that it's hard to conceive of a better way to communicate that we … Continue reading And for Our Next Trick…
