It’s been a while since I did a professional post, hasn’t it? to my new followers I would like to extend my warmest and most thankful of greetings, and I hope you’ve found something thought provoking and enjoyable here. So, a brief update before we go back to the normal swing of things.
I’m working on the next essay, I promise!
A few months ago, I submitted an essay to the charity anthology Rock & Roll Saved My Soul, which is now making its first tottering steps into the world. My contribution, “Lullaby of Stars,” is what you might call a…liberal interpretation of the phrase rock and roll.
Or, to summarize more neatly: In which the size of the universe frightens a small and nervous (but not yet nerdy) child, and the very fictional Inspector Javert proves helpful during a very real mental breakdown.
You can check out the official description below, as well as a link to Amazon if you’re so inclined. Much love to one and all of you.

In this book, you will find a collection of stories, letters, and poetry about how music has personally changed our lives. Each story is unique, each story is true. Filled with emotion, passion, and love for the bands and songs that have touched our lives.
