Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

Thanks for the Blues


I've got to thank
my mom
for the love
of music
from Porgy & Bess
to Mario Lanza

in our younger years
she was always
singing
even during
the hard times

but life
took a toll
on her
and her good mind
and broken heart
turned dark
and rageful

the singing
stopped

can't ever stop
singing
the blues
