I love the Spring. It is such a relief from the dreary cold that this area gets. I am from Miami, and have never really adjusted to the seasons. With Spring comes the symphony of birds in the morning. It is such an absolute joy to start my day with coffee while listening to the …

There are periods when I get really immersed in some of my work. These are very productive times, and I get a lot done. But there can be a price to this flurry of productivity. It is a disconnection from who I am. I stop doing the things I love. This includes taking walks, reading, …

What is Conceptual Art?

I went to music school for seven years. I was exposed to all sorts of innovative ideas, and even embraced Avant Garde music for awhile. Studying the likes of John Cage, Arnold Shoenberg, and Anton Webern gave me a sense of exapanding traditional music ideas. I have always been open to artistic innovations. There is …

Is Facebook Fading?

I am now starting to wonder if Facebook is fading. Will it become another MySpace? It is true that the younger generation does not use Facebook very much any more. Things such as Instagram, Snapchat, and Pinterest have stepped in with new ways to communicate. One can see diminishing use of Facebook by the younger …
