I’ve released an album, it’s the first of four that I’ll be kicking out into the world over the next two months. This one is Part I – Winter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): At one point in his career, the mythical Greek hero Hercules was compelled to carry out a series of twelve strenuous labors. Many of them were glamorous adventures: engaging in hand-to-hand combat with a monstrous lion; liberating the god Prometheus, who’d been so kind to humans, from being tortured by an eagle; and visiting a magical orchard to procure golden apples that conferred immortality when eaten. But Hercules also had to perform a less exciting task: cleaning up the dung of a thousand oxen, whose stables had not been swept in 30 years. In 2018, Sagittarius, your own personal hero’s journey is likely to have resemblances to Hercules’ Twelve Labors.

I had a dream the other night, Tuesday I think, where I’d been invited to play with some significant folks and my bass playing was woeful.
People, audience members, friends, would come up to me and talk briefly, with circumspection, with sadness in their eyes. And I continued to play blithely ignorant to how poor every aspect of my performance was. I was not invited back.
Seldom does my unconscious manifest so strongly.
Life to me mostly seems like how it might be for a cat with a spinal injury, except in that nobody thinks I’m cute as I struggle to do the basic things that everyone else appears to do with ease.
It’s a shame to feel so jaded.
There’s a meme-ish app doing the rounds on Facebook called I Write Like which compares a portion of your writing with successful writers.
So far my style compares with Agatha Christie, Vladimir Nabokov, Arthur C. Clarke, David Foster Wallace, H.G. Wells and Stephanie Meyer.
Even though I’ve written no fiction for over a year, I feel quietly pleased with these results…
Have a wee go!
