Waking up at 11:08 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Strawberries, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. Irish Breakfast Tea.

Teaching afternoon lessons at Music Makers.


Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Butter and Jam. Potato Chips with Avocado. Coffee.

Watching Small Town Crime (2017).

Catching up on things.

Practicing piano.

Got a DEJA gig at 7th Street again, the space between Chix and Mahi’s with the multi-colored umbrella looking canopy. My mom tags along. My aunt Pansy and her husband Peter show up too. The sun is shining – the weather is perfect – just the right kind of breeze. Right before we’re set to go on there’s some complications with having enough lines to plug in. Skinny Bob, our sound guy for the evening, tried to figure it out. Meanwhile, something John said triggers a short fuse in Drew and she gets real angry. Somehow, we manage to pull ourselves together and get this show going.

The back patios to both restaurants are packed and people surround the stage from the boardwalk. The coolest part is afterwards hearing the compliments from people. One of them explains to me about the ELO song I sang, “You sound exactly like Jeff Lynne.” I inspired someone’s grandkid to start taking piano lessons. It’s always an inspiring time at 7th Street.

Back home mom fixes up a delicious smoothie.

Ana and I have a sudden urge to make love.

Bread and Chamomile Tea.

Watching YouTube.

Sleep 4 a.m.
