Summer, the season, may still be sixsteen days away, but my summer vacation started yesterday. And, after seventeen years of school (starting with Mrs. Nixon’s Kindergarten in Newfields, NH) and thirty-five years of teaching, I don’t know what summer without a vacation is like. Poor me, huh?
This summer will be up to its “same old tricks,” but it does feature something new: this blog. With time to explore the possibilities of WordPress and figure out how to use them, I’m hoping to expand my offerings. I will keep you posted on all the anniversaries of birthdates, recording dates, release dates and major historical events in the world of folk, blues, country, rock & roll and jazz that I am privy to. Looking over the “calendar” that I have assembled and continually add to, June and August look good but July is overflowing with cool stuff. It’s gonna be fun.
So, I hope you keep checking in on sixstr stories over the months ahead. Please post a comment when you are so inspired (big thanks to all of you who already have!) and feel free to pass the link on to your friends.
“Good music doesn’t get old”
Talk to you soon.
P.S.: The title of this post comes from a song I wrote and recorded on my CD “There Are (Songs To Be Sung).” Listen: “Summer’s Here” by Eric Sinclair. I hope you enjoy it.
