Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some other beverage. It is a little chilly out there, but I think almost as warm as it ever got yesterday. I just got back from a long walk, and have to report that it is still as windy as yesterday! But today will be relatively warm and sunny, a perfect early autumn day. I plan on spending every free moment outside, though it is too windy to kayak. Oh, where am I? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from Cape Cod.
I drove down to Cape Cod on Wednesday night, as I often do. I worked Thursday and Friday, which I can do from here. Thursday was rainy and I didn’t feel well, so it was a wash. Friday I felt much better and the weather was nice, if cold and super windy, but my work day was pretty insane. I did get a chance to exercise after work and took a few long walks in my neighborhood, but I did not get away from the house.
As stated above, this was a typical work week. I was able to exercise a few times and got out for a couple of runs. I had massage on Wednesday. I walked the dogs often while in New Hampshire (only the cats are with me on Cape Cod). Typical week.
Last week I said I had a surprise. OK, I need a little background.
Some of you know I write and play music, but you may not know that in the first decade of the century I was deeply involved in composing “contemporary series music”, that is, modern classical. Back in 2015 I released a CD for my Hamlet Symphony. I had planned on putting out other music from this time period to close it out, but I never did.
I just released a (download only) CD of piano music. It has two piano sonatas and 24 Preludes, one in each key. Yeah, that is 32 tracks and about 90 minutes of music, but since it isn’t a physical CD, it can be done. I don’t have links, but if you search Spotify or Amazon or other places… Yeah, I will try to get some good links for you.
After I put out the CD, I also put up a recent instrumental pop song, For Her Heartbreak, as a downloadable single. I felt that this was the best fit of my recent music with the classical piano music from a decade back, a good transition. Again, no links, but you can search Spotify or whatever to find it. Oh, if you didn’t see the video back in the winter, here it is again.

I plan on making pages on the blog for these releases soon. And hopefully I’ll get good links without having to pay…
Anyway, that was my week. As I said, I have a need to get outside and soak in some sun and nature.
Thanks for stopping in! If you have a coffee share I will try to stop by for a virtual drink. Hope you have a great weekend!
