At the end of 2016, as the election season was coming to a – to be honest, unanticipated – end, there was a lot of talk about moving. Google searches for “moving to Canada” skyrocketed. Ancestry dot com subscriptions increased, as people tried to figure out if they could claim European citizenship. Airfare websites were […]
via If You Could Move Anywhere… — Three At Home
I’m super excited. all the blog stuff and music stuff you can find are at my new site with my duo, THREE AT HOME.
check it out:
On this day in 1915, Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” was first published in the The Atlantic Monthly.
Here’s my version first: “Two Roads” featuring Brandon Brooks on cello. Recorded live at the Lizard Lounge, Cambridge, MA.
And now, Mr. Frost’s:
“The Road Not Taken”
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
So. it’s been way too long.
I just had an email from a friend of mine who lives THOUSANDS of miles away asking me in a roundabout kinda way when the last time I’ve picked up my guitar was.
And then at a concert last night I was almost dumbfounded when someone I used to play music with a LOT asked “and how is music going for you?” I was shocked into silence. It’s kinda not. I need to get back on that horse.
I’ve even almost finished an EP of new-ish songs that I’m really happy with. I’m going to make that happen before the end of the year. And I’m going to spend the next few days or so updating everything. EVERYthing. :-)
so welcome to my blog.
no – it’s not really a blog. it’s more like an index.
Of where to go and what to see.
Kind of like a tourist guide to All Things Dann :-)
