Labor Day - Fall 2023
by adg on Mon Sep 04, 2023 10:52 am
Well it wasn't much of a summer. We watched the flowers come and go, and various creatures came and went. But, we're into my favorite time of year. It's supposed to be even warmer than usual. In a couple/few weeks I'll make my way to familiar places to photograph the colors of the season. That's the plan anyway. We'll see what happens.There's a few lingering birthdays and family events coming up soon.

I'm still at my desk - Drinking coffee, and thinking about things, occasionally even writing about them.

Announcements aren't what they used to be. After retiring there's not much to actually announce. So I get to write updates etc., or comment on the state of things. There's always something going on. If not with me, there's certainly lots happening anyway - There always is. Writing is kinda like a "note to self." Most of my songs were in that category anyway. Nothing new I guess. I just witness it all. Now I get to see the fall, and I'm loving it. :)
Mid-Summer 2023
by adg on Tue Aug 01, 2023 11:22 am
It's already August 1st - Not only is it Ramblin' Jack Elliott's 92nd birthday, but it also mean we're halfway through summer. It seems like it just began. The last few days and weeks have been more like late spring, with the smoke, fog, rain etc. Maybe summer will encroach upon fall. Not sure but it sure isn't what we were expecting. It's even a little on the cool side today. Had to put on a jacket just to stalk butterflies and other bugs. In August!

It's not like we weren't told that climate change would have some extreme weather, and even though this isn't really extreme - It's close enough for horse-shoes. Friends south of us are enduring extreme heat, other places are extremely dry, or extremely wet - I guess it is kind of extreme.

Here in Western Massachusetts for the past 48 hours, it's been nice! But it used to be nice most of the time, and then we'd get bouts of crazy. Now it's mostly crazy with bouts of nice. I'm making the best of it and hope you are too wherever you are and whatever craziness you have to endure.
Summer Time 2023

Well with all the smoke in the air, the summer isn't starting like it usually does. If it isn't smokey, it's cloudy. But, it's keeping the temperature a little under the weather - as it were. It's cooler. It's also more muggy. There were a few sunny days in June when I got to go out and play in the cement pond, and I'm looking forward to more of those kinds of days over the next 8 weeks. It could be worse.

I could be up father north with my Canadian buddies, or farther west where it's been too smokey to go outside. Or I could be with my kids in Texas where it's be ridiculously hot. I'm staying put for at least the foreseeable future. Marti & I are making the best of it, and the flowers in the garden are loving it - Because we're here helping them out.

I hope everyone gets a chance to have some fun this summer... Enjoy the holidays - There's a few coming up.
See you somewhere!

What's Left Of Me 2023
by adg on Wed May 31, 2023 1:46 pm
We've finished our What's Left Of Me tour. The last gig was in Stowe, VT May 27, 2023 and it was filmed. We haven't seen any of it yet, but at some point within the next few weeks, we will try to create an edited version for the folks who wanted to see the show but couldn't make it to any of them. Well also trying to add some closed captioning etc. There's stuff to do. Stay tuned. It might be coming to your house.
Spring 2023 Yippie!
by adg on Sun Mar 19, 2023 5:20 pm
March 20, 2023 marks the first astronomical day of spring. I'll take it. Meteorologically, spring began March 1st. Coulda fooled me. But in either case the days are getting longer, more day light, less night time. I'm still looking out my window at a few feet of snow. There's friends on the left coast with 10 times that or more. And there's friends down the road a few miles with not much at all. Happy equinox to anyone reading this.... :)

Happy New Year 2023!
