Cogito ergo bloggo
"I think, therefore I blog."
I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years and occasionally enjoy listening to a radio program called “Philosophy Talk” hosted by John Perry and Ken Taylor on Sunday mornings. They always end with an invitation to read their blog and quote the motto above, and I never fail to smile. Along those lines, I will contribute blog articles relating to musical and other topics of interest to me; please send any comments or thoughts my way.
