Here’s what I’m working on now, in no particular order:

1. Enjoying time with Ginny, my almost seven-month-old!
Current challenges: sleep schedule with time zone change!

2. Rehearsing for third leg of my tour, doing tour PR, and traveling to gigs in MI, IN, OH, PA.

3. Writing poems.
When I get 40 or 50 poems finished, I’m going to self publish a poetry book. I’m not rushing it, just doing it for fun. Here’s some.

4. Running with my dog Lois, usually through the woods.

5. Taking two online classes to keep my teaching certificate current.
(I’m taking a history class and poetry class.)

6. Teaching guitar lessons at my studio, Dixboro Guitar Lessons. Creating some promotional events for DGL.

7.  Working on some guitar lesson videos for DGL.

8. Writing blogs, posting one every weekday.

Current Reading List:

  • Essays: Stranger than Fiction: True Stories by Chuck Palahniuk
  • Poetry: The Trouble with Poetry by Billy Collins
  • Poetry: Best American Poetry 2015, editor Sherman Alexie
  • History: Lies My Teachers Told Me, by James Loewen
  • History: People’s History of the United States, by Howard Zinn

This now page was inspired by Derek Silver and Gregory Brown’s tweets. Go make a “now” page, then get working!
