My brother Richard gave me his Epiphone 335, and some additional music gear. I bought the latest version of Logic Pro X, and an audio interface, and cleaned up my isolation booth. Went thru a few dozen online Logic Pro X lessons to get back up to speed. I’ve been grinding on finger exercises and recording patterns, and begun to arrange them into songs. I’m allowing myself to be musically creative again, and am able to fend off the idea of it being an invitation to personal calamity. We’ll see how this goes.

This document is a vessel for artifacts of an artist, a window into my past, and my refuge since the election. It’s not about promoting my music. It is about providing explorable digital archeology for my kids to know their father better, for friends who I’ve lost touch with, or for anyone curious about my experience with depression, creativity, and getting by in the real world.
