Full Wolf Moon
Moon last night, Jan 25
it’s that time again. The hungry wolves can be heard
outside the teepee's, on the snow covered hills, howling at the moon. We
call this the Full Wolf Moon, because the wolves bellies are empty and
the moon is full.
it doesn’t make perfect sense, but I suspect it was difficult to
translate Algonquin into English. Sometimes it’s hard to translate
English into English.
was kind enough to put a new set of strings on my guitar this week. He
would rather do it than have to look at the way my guitar looks after I

“La Primera Vez”,
or, “The First Time”, is the name of the new song that John and I
started writing this week. It feels really good to play, and I have
almost finished writing the words and story.
John came up with a beautiful Spanish sounding musical hook, so I translated the main phrase into Spanish. It works. Stay tuned.
A Couple Of Contrasting Headlines

misrepresentations of the NRA propaganda that are in opposition to facts
and common sense?
My new favorite
side dish is Trader Joe’s frozen stir fry vegetables. I put half a
package in a covered microwave container for about 3 min and presto, add
some fresh ground pepper and eat. This way I have something healthy on
my plate while I continue to use up the food in my freezer that contains
creepy, factory animal parts.
