Start out the walk with a decent breeze, rain clouds overhead. Big drops begin to fall and I worry about getting drenched.
Storm clouds move off. Wind drops. Heavy wet air. Soaked in sweat instead.
Moving slowly due to intermittent fasting. Ketosis coming on. Can’t get my legs to swing forward with any pop.
Keith Jarrett Trio keeps me going.
Whew! A sweaty walk tonight. Humidity caught me off guard but now that I think about it, I was listening to some hardcore NOLA funk à la Stanton Moore, so I guess it was appropriate.
A C2 row and a walk. Another C2 row and a walk coming up. Listening to
Stanton Moore bring that funky New Orleans drumming.
Marlon Brando, Apocalypse Now, 1979
A dear friend of mine and I were recently discussing some of the surprising educational blessings we received in high school in Hutchinson, Kansas. The music program was exceptional, with some truly dedicated teachers. (Thank you Jim Swiggart and Mike …

Two rows, two walks, some good reading, Steinbeck, McPhee, and Waugh all got some of my attention today. Stevie Wonder, Semisonic, Matthew Sweet some of the listening.
I started intermittent fasting today. Late day meal only. We shall see.
In all of its distortion encrusted perfection.
Second 5K walk in for the day. Somebody I follow on line posted a
Ray Wylie Hubbard YouTube link today and now I’m all in.
What a wonderful day listening to Stevie Wonder on his birthday. Such a tonic for today’s troubles.
Stevie Wonder, b. May 13, 1950
Reminded by my friend
Mark Wickliffe that today is the birthday of one of the greatest musicians to ever stomp on the terra.
Any day you decide to listen to Stevie Wonder is going to be amazing.
Listen to this …

Nice walk with the sun on my face. Bill Withers, James Brown for pep in the step.
Short row and a short walk to close those rings.
Earth Wind & Fire in the ears. Almost raining.
Started back on the machine last night. Now finishing 1st half of today’s paddle. 20min. Listening to this wonderful album.
Suzanne Vega – An Evening of New York Songs and Stories.
My morning spent cleaning up cat hair and listening to
Lee Konitz Meets Jimmy Guiffre. First time I’ve heard it. Outstanding.
It’s important to remember.
We lost altoist Lee Konitz this week. Not a superstar by today’s standards, but essential to the jazz story, and one of my favorite players.
Konitz’ playing was spare and intellectual. His sound was so dry, …
