My Home Recordings
I've been playing the guitar and singing for my own amusement, and occasionally for small change, since 1957, with long stretches off. I started up again in late 2014 and in 2016 I bought a compact digital recorder to play with in my home office/music room. I'll post whatever isn't too bad on my music page from time to time.
My Blog, "Creating Interest"
I learned how to set up a blog at http://creatinginterest.blogspot.com in 2007. There you'll find occasional ramblings about books, music, gardens, and the museum world.
"Journal Entries:" A Collection of Short Essays
Before I retired in 2010, I saved a few of the monthly columns I wrote for the E-News of the Missouri Humanities Council. These pieces cover a variety of topics and are non-academic in style.
