Rehearsing for Today’s Symphony Event

CVYS rehearsal

Photo from last week’s rehearsal. Up this morning reviewing script, looking forward to joining the Chippewa Valley Youth Symphony for concert honoring veterans this afternoon at 3 p.m. If you’ve used the phrase “kids these days!” lately, you’ll want to see this bunch. Concert is at 3 p.m., Gantner Hall, Haas Fine Arts Center, UW-Eau Claire. Free admission for veterans. More information here.

Gasoline and Cuisine

I am not opposed to a little asparagus truffle foam now and again, but one never wishes to lose the common touch, and these right here were all the more delicious for being purchased at a truck stop. It’s yer subtle fresh mustard undertone that really pulls the whole deal together.

Singing With The BCO

Mike BCO Ainsworth

Usually when I stand up with a guitar (like tomorrow in Wild Rose), I have my beloved Long Beds backing me, but when I head out on tour with Tent Show Radio, I always get to perform a couple of my songs with the Blue Canvas Orchestra, and they take real good care of me.

Here’s a rough cut of us performing “Could Be You” in Richland Center:


And this is “Shaman Girl,” from the show at the Door County Auditorium:

Books and Canthooks


Showing off my diastema with my friend and publisher Kathy from Wisconsin Historical Society Press (they published my latest book, From the Top). We were selling books and meeting writers and readers. It was a good day.

Spoke at a writers conference last week, speaking at a logger’s conference next week. That’s my deal in a nutshell, and sure grateful for it.

In preparation for next week, I’ve revisited this post (it really doesn’t help, I still have the hands of a typist).
