zephyr illusions photo by donna October 1992. The view atop Chasseral, Jura Mountains looking across Switzerland to The Alps on the horizon. Fog, intensely thick, rising from Lac Bienne and stretching its fingers high onto the Lignières-Plateau de Diesse after wholly filling the valley below the plateau.

2006 - another calendar year clicks by....

sure went by quickly.

highlights of 2006?...
BRMC in Philadelphia and Tallahassee; The Raconteurs in Montreal; lots of local music; learning of the nuances and impact of sound in my life; met up with some good people; reconnected/disconnected with the past; worked like a dog; partied hardy; flew like a nightingale; continue downsizing; begin optimizing; ...

expectations for 2007?...
more BRMC during new tour; visit another North American city on my places-to-see-wishlist; discover plenty more new music; find a quiet comfortable affordable place to live; hook up with good friends; look to the future; garner discipline; find a way to maximize investments; read some books; do more writing; find fulfilling means of supporting self; make celebratory trip to European destination; love family & friends; be happy;...


  1. Good to see you back online. Hope all your dreams for 2007 come true. And hopefully you'll find time to write more often ;)

  2. bedankt, Prof. :)
    may 2007 bring you as much happiness, good health and love as you can carry!

  3. Congratulations on having the temerity to assign yourself a few New Year's Resolutions. When I ask others if they have any New Year's Resolutions, most of them snort and say they don't bother with resolutions, causing me to question my own motives. And my motives are, as you obviously know, to continue with my lifelong goal of self-improvement.

    Your last, resolution (Be Happy) is by far the most difficult, given the desperate state of the world today.

    At any rate, Bob and I plan on drinking a toast to you well before midnight on the last day of this oh-so-eventful year.

    Cheers! Camille

  4. Camille,

    cheers! :)
