Darkness is no joke

Maybe it’s ironic that I am writing this in the month dedicated to all things dark and scary.

Be lions not lemmings

In today’s society, speaking out against the trends is not a way to win popularity. If you wish to fit in, its better to either keep or peace or go with the flow. But what if the flow carries you right off the cliff? I think, if that is my choice, its preferable to be [ keep reading ]

The good don't live long enough

A while back, I wrote the first article about losing talented musicians too soon. In the second of that series, I need to clarify that soon is a relative term. When it comes to the music that moves me — and so many others — life itself is too short. It’s not always a matter [ keep reading ]
