Happy Birthday, Alison

You would have been 44 today. We still miss you.

Honku: The Zen Alternative to Road Rage

These are great. Anyone who drives a lot should get a kick out of them. Here's a sample:

What keeps me from just
pelting your honking auto
with rotting garbage?
Psycho behind me
what do you want me to do-
hit the crossing child?
Together again
at the stoplight-was it worth
all of the speeding?
Natural rhythms
moons and tides supplanted by
yellow, red, green
April signs of spring-
nesting doves, blossoming trees,
blood-spattered roadkill
The evening sun sets
white moon journeys up the sky
I'm still in traffic

A book deal!

No, nobody's publishing me (though I had an article in AIM Magazine a couple of years ago). But, on the basis of writing this blog, I've been sent an advance reading copy of Randall Sullivan's new book about mracles and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Watch this space for a review...

Just In Time For Lent

Not for the weak of heart - a hard rock version of Psalm 130. This one's not so much designed for church as for shouting from the mountaintop - we did use it a few years back in LifeTeen, but a much less aggressive arrangement. Just click the link above, "Song 130" is right on top. The "Dafduc" thing? Long boring story - just turned into a nickname...

Here's the radio link, bunch of my stuff in rotation now (cos RPMedia is new and I'm one of their beta testers).

New News Update

The Sunday after my 1/14 post, I got a killer case of vertigo - at church, in the middle of playing, with the new bishop there. Sheesh.

I threw up 7 times that day, finally went to ER. Been around with about 4 doctors since then, see a fifth day after tomorrow about some stuff they found on the MRI. Still no hearing in left ear, either.

Prayers will be cheerfully accepted!!!
