news! and images...

*editor's update* I would like to give credit where credit is due: the last picture in the blog (me with the guitar) was taken by the lovely and uber talented deana marie kirsch--thanks, deana!!!
  

   Okay, so I have some good news...drum roll, please...

   Drew will be coming out to Toronto to play some of my friend, Clyde Alves,' music with him during the benefit we are hosting for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids on the 24th of this month.

   I am so excited about this, for many different reasons:
  • Drew comes to visit. Enough said.
  • Drew gets to play bass with a band (and I know he really misses playing with his band that is currently on hiatus, The Look Machine).
  • Drew gets to be a part of my world; it's a meeting of two different parts of my life that I love. Drew gets to hang out with my tour friends, even play music with a few of them..
    And if you happen to read this and are anywhere near the area, the benefit show is Monday, November 24th, at the Gladstone Hotel at 8pm.  Come on out and support a good thing!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------
Now, here are a few images that I like and wanted to share...

    This one is a picture I took while walking to the subway on just a perfect fall day.  Bits of sunlight were streaming through the clouds, brightening the majestic colors of the leaves, and lighting the way for amiable dogs who kindly allowed their owners to tag along on a rambling walk...
  I wish I had a better camera; I wish I were a better photographer, in general, but here is just a glimpse of the peaceful suburbia where I am currently living.
  However, don't tell somebody here that this is the suburbs.  I made the mistake of telling a woman staying in my building how much I enjoy these suburbs.  She immediately stiffened a little and told me, This is not the suburbs; I can show you the suburbs. This is midtown.

  Oh, sorry...My real point was just that I liked it here; I hope she got that, despite my apparently insulting reference to it as being suburban.

  Sheesh. You really gotta be careful about what you say when talking about cities...;-)

    Oh, and here's just a black and white shot of us on the line...Before the change over:
   And this is a shot that makes me look like I can rock out any Indigo Girls song you can throw at me on the guitar.  The truth is I can't; but I sure do enjoy playing the 5 chords I know...

That's all tonight!
