I'm 40 Today.

Get ready for Ghost Notes in Audio Book!!! It's coming your way June 15th!!!

Yes, as of today, I'm old.

I've never had much of a hang-up with the idea of being 40. I've always held fast to the notion that I'd peak--whatever that means--at 45. The rest of my life is just screw-around time. Hell, I've got five years before I have to straighten up.

In recognition of my 40th birthday, I'm passing along another nugget to you for your aural pleasure. This one is another live cut from my show at Eddie's Attic in Atlanta last year. Shalom, soundman extraordinaire, had our trio dialed in but good that night, and Mr. Hartley doctored the recording a little to make it sound even better. Come hear a live version of "I Don't Know Right Now" at my MySpace Audio page, where you'll find lots of other stuff, too. You'll be glad you did.

Also, I've booked another Portland gig! I will once again play the Twin Paradox coffee house in Sellwood, this time on a weekend night, Friday, June 12th, from 8 to 10 PM. This is an all-originals show; I'll play pretty much everything I know that isn't a cover. Mark your calendars now for Friday, June 12th, from 8 to 10 PM. Free show!

Finally, I'm hoping to find someone who'd like to accompany me for this gig. It can be any second instrument. Another guitarist is the obvious choice, but it doesn't have to be. If you know of someone in the Portland area who might be good at adding a little melody to my songs, please let me know at ae[at]

That's it for me. I'm off to Ashland to enjoy plays, hiking and food. Yes, life after 40 isn't so bad.

Yours in laying down the law,

Somehow, I feel younger today.
