"I wonder…"
I wonder… I wonder… What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow? I wonder why my lip twitches like an involuntary Elvis impersonator when I haven’t gotten enough sleep? I wonder if Facebook has my photo on an ad for Steve Martin’s books? I wonder i...

“Perfect Day”
Some music for your Thursday. While I’ve drifted away from rock music over the past 20 years or so, there are still seminal artists—artists who’ve inspired me on multiple level, including my poetry—to whom I still return. & two of those are Lou Reed & Patti...

Okay, more hints on the top secret project! You may have seen the cello videos I posted this winter, & you may have seen the Icelandic poems on RFBanjo! Now we have the langspil--according to Wikipedia: "The Langspil is a traditional Icelandic drone zither.... Snd since it only has 1 melody string with 1 to 5 drone strings (usually 2) it is easy to learn to play it compared with more complicated instruments. The langspil can be played by plucking the strings by hand, with a bow or by hammering."
