About…rather an all-encompassing word. This blog is About whatever happens to be interesting me at the moment.
The things that interest me though are:
Panama. In May, 2009, I received residency status in Panama. I am currently house sitting in Potrerillos Arriba (of course there’s also an Abajo) about 3,000 feet above the city of David (Dah VEED) not far from the Costa Rican border.
Boats, Ships and sailing upon the Sea. I grew up in Orleans on the elbow of Cape Cod and naturally developed a love of the sea. I also worked as a licensed captain for 18 years on yachts and small commercial craft, spent nearly three years on the French Riviera (Antibes) and sailed across the Atlantic in November 1991. In 1992 I bought a pretty little sailboat, a Kaiser26 that I named Nancy Dawson and took off for nine months and did a single-handed cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Mexico, Belize and the Rio Dulce in Guatemala and return.
Music. I am a child of rock & roll. I love good old-fashioned honky-tonk, barrel-house piano and living in New Orleans I got to see some of the best ivory-ticklers in the business. Professor Longhair, Dr. John, James Booker, Allen Toussaint, Tuts Washington and one of my all time favorites…Marcia Ball.
That’s what this blog will be about.
