and so it goes
that once again we have approached and passed
the place in space that makes for a new year.
do you feel it? can you tell?
i'm not sure yet.
still pretty out of it, but happy all the same.
I am recovering quietly and fine from the surgery.
Thank you to my friends who have gently got my back
and are looking after the critters and creations!
The new album of surgery songs went on a trip to the mixing shed
and should be returning home, ready to share shortly!
And thus, the lowdown on the download and how that will happen!
News of it here in, like, days.
In the meantime, something to watch, someplace to go.
Back in time and place,
to caliche roads, clouds, satchels full of songs.

as they will you.
