The Quieting in 2020

I’ve been talking a while about the need to turn the volume down on external noise, the chief culprit of course being social media. The New Year is off to a good start so far in that regard. I still haven’t quite logged off of Facebook yet (or Instagram or Twitter), but I have avoided it more than usual the last 24 hours or so to end the Old Year and begin the New one. I’ll actively be doing more of that throughout the year. Even if I have to remove apps from my phone. The goal is to achieve a more virtual and actual quietude. For a clearer headspace, if nothing else.

Besides, I’ve got shit to do this year. Which is to say all the shit I didn’t do last year. And really who couldn’t use more reading, more writing and more rocking?

Noise-cancelling. Reclaim your attention. This is the way. You should do the same.

A Princely Evening

Having myself a Princely evening. I own the one on the left but paused around 1985 in the chronology (Around the World in a Day era). Starting the one on the left tonight cuz I was next in the library’s long queue of holds. I’ll finish whatever remains someday when I buy it.

The First Day of My Autumn Vacation Yields

. . . the latest addition to the #RuckRock fam. A Fender Frontman 212R that I salvaged from a buddy who doesn’t play anymore for thirty bucks! The damned thing is heavy and loud AF! I now have Marshall, Crate (for bass), Randall and Fender amplification. What’s next? Mesa-Boogie? Bogner? Orange? Who knows. 31 years ago I started with Peavy.img_20191012_171649_3263289351176836436904.jpg

Don’t remember when I took this, but I do love me some sunsets and sunrises, especially in Summer and Autumn.
