My self-summary
For the first part of my life I was too serious, brooding, tragic, damaged. None of it ever helped me get anywhere. So now maybe it could be said I've over compensated by being Goofy, trivial, care free and devil may care.

It's better this way.
I can still get a little moody or testy on occasion but once I notice it I'll catch my self and turn it off. It is better to be thought of as trifling and silly than to cast gloom and judgment around you.

When I was a boy I watched too much television. Later I went through a long phase where I refused to own or watch a TV and I said and thought disparaging things about those who did.

Now I'm a lot more casual about it.
What I’m doing with my life
My father gave up his trumpet playing to get a career and provide for his family. That's a decision I admire but I could tell it left him a little bitter. But what the hell it was the fifties and trumpet players weren't the up and coming thing.
``I've managed to stick with my music but, like the old joke goes..
Q. What's the difference between a New Orleans musician and a large pizza?
A. A large pizza can feed a family of four.
And yet I have no regrets because, in the end, having the courage to dare to pursue your dreams is of more value than the size of your house.
BTW, mine is small but quite comfortable. My house I mean.

And sure I make a living, as I don't mind working days to have what I need, but it's time to start thinking about the next phase.

There is no reason to give up my band or to stop playing but maybe it's time to think about starting a business, buying a farm, or opening a bar.

Got any Ideas? Life is full of possibilities.

Extra bonus points for ideas for any business we can run while living on a sail boat in the Caribbean.
I’m really good at
I can cook a few things really well. I try to master a new dish once every few months. Next up Lasagna, then maybe gumbo. I"m also good at seeing things from other peoples' points of view.
Of course I'd like to think I'm good at my job and my craft too.
The first things people usually notice about me
How could I possibly know that. I'm not them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Saw a newish Vietnamese place I'd like to try on Maple street.
I want to listen too something new, or something old, or one of my friends.
I hope that helps avoid the classic rock quagmire, My punk rock cred is punker than yours or the neo-hipster name dropping Olympics.
Oh, and I want to go to the symphony.
Six things I could never do without
Home cooking
Art shows
My music
road trips
A child like sense of wonder
And a bunch of crazy freaks that are infuriating, difficult, brilliant, and yet endlessly entertaining. That's seven I think.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have no typical Friday night. Sometimes its Friday on Tuesday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cheated a little on my politics test to make the answer come out centrist/democrat in stead of socialist.
You should message me if
You can boogie on. Enjoy a little fun and foolishness here and there even if it it's not your main thing. There is never going to be, or ever was supposed to be, a good definition of what Boogie on means but you need to be able to do it.
The two of us
