a quiet night

It has been an eventful couple of weeks. With teaching as my day gig, the summers offer a wealth of possibility. Last week I was in the recording studio tracking for my as-yet-unnamed sophomore album as a leader. The session went great! I am working on a separate post to fill you all in.

However, the time has come to embrace my summer adventures. Friday afternoon I head off to New Jersey for the wedding of a good friend. On Sunday, I head south for a summer in Baltimore. While there, I plan to edit the album, write some new tunes, meet some new musicians, and grow into a new chapter in my life. I am very excited about it all!

But tonight, I am enjoying a quiet, contemplative evening in front of a backyard fire. I will certainly miss this aspect of my country cottage, though I think I will find Baltimore relaxing in its own right.
