Twas a lovely misty foggy day here. Still slowly chiseling away at writing the song ‘Cost of Living.’ Often when songwriting, I get overly attached to a particular melody or chord progression or lyric and have a hard time changing it or scrapping it altogether if it’s not serving the greater purpose of the song. Then I’m mired in the sand. So I might call in for reinforcements to help me wrestle this one outta me. And Kelly Clarkson on AmIdol tonight… that girl’s voice is a national treasure!


I emerged from the Union Square subway at dusk to find blaring hip-hop beats and throngs of people cheering an incendiary rapper. Huge Tibetan flags. It was an Asian dude. A Free Tibet Rally. Great city.
