Life is busy here, though quite wonderful and all very exciting. In addition to work as a teacher, I am also starting to work for a friend in the company that he works for (a Spanish guitar company). Beth and I have set up our studio in the basement and we are busy, pounding away at new pottery and working as often as possible down there....though Beth is there much more than I am.
Brother PJ, who has been living with us for three months, leaves town on Saturday, and we will miss him greatly, so I am also working to squeeze in last minutes of time with him, eating, drinking, and hopefully finishing the tattoos that we started some months ago. Pics of that soon, I hope.
He will be heading out on tour, once again a gypsy with no home. Please check him out at www.myspace.com/pjbondmusic as well as over at his blog at www.yearofathousandroommates.com --

On this upcoming Sunday, we will be playing at LAAFF (The Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival)...Probably at 3 PM (maybe a bit later) at the BoBo Stage. I will also be playing in the Songwriter Series at 6 PM.
Finally, artistically -- Beth and I, along with four other artists, will have a show up at the Clingman Cafe in the River Arts District during the month of September. There will be an opening reception this Friday from 5-8 PM at the Cafe. Please come and say hello and check out the great art that we'll have there.
