I write sometimes. Sometimes people read what I write, but not often.
I like to smell everything in Yankee Candle and pretend I'm traveling to far off lands. I don't like too many "nah nah's" in songs. I like my coffee black.
I recorded a solo album in 1998 with 9 original songs and a cover of "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window" because I knew the chords. Hardly anyone has heard it.

Sleep came easy on my first night in France. I was out seconds after my head hit the pillow and woke up 7 hours later, as fresh as could be expected. I was a little worried about the hotel before I came, but it’s good enough for the […]
