Capture

Stay as you are

in that very spot

let me capture

the perfect shot

so years from now

I can recall

this moment shared

before our fall.

A thousand words

to hang in air

as I remember

we were a pair.

Your glossy image

faded through the years

and blurred for sure

by all my tears.

A Day in the Recording Studio

For those who don’t know, I have been collaborating with a very talented musician and friend, Kristina Looney. The product of these collaborations is pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. Just last week, we took a trip to the recording studio and recorded some of the songs we had finished. By we, I mean I stood outside the recording booth and made funny faces at her while she strummed and sang. We each have crucial roles in this partnership.

While I continue to write sad lyrics and she continues to demand happy tunes to be strummed on her ukulele, it seems that this partnership is the start of something good. So please, LISTEN! And be sure to keep an eye out for more great tunes in the new year.

You can check out our songs here, or on my “Music” page that will be updated as we continue to record! If you really like what you hear, our songs can be downloaded for just $1! Our first CD will be available soon!

This Year…

This year I will not scratch,

this year I will not bite,

this year I will not meow

and keep my girl up all night.

This year I will be good

and lose that pesky pound

I will not beg for fish

and I will run all around.

This year…

who am I kitten?

I will still scratch

and I will still bite

but I promise only

when you deserve the fight.

And that pesky pound

can stay or go,

but the fish shall stay,

 this I know.
