UPCOMING… ETC…

I’ll be having surgery in 8 days, I expect to feel better shortly after. I have health insurance but because this condition is so rare I need to see an out-of-network doctor. To help cover my medical expenses I will be offering some limited edition prints and probably a limited edition cassette as well. More details on that soon.

Here are some photos from my visit to Slabsides, the former cabin of John Burroughs and some of the surrounding scenery.

If you’ve been following along on social media, you’ve maybe heard that I’m dealing with some serious health issues. I expect to recover, but from now until I have surgery, I’m worried about it. It makes me feel better to try to continue creating as much as I can because just in case I bite the dust, I will go out knowing I was active until the end. Don’t squander your good health, enjoy your life while you can.

Friction on the Astral Plane was just something I recorded one night when I couldn’t sleep.

UPCOMING… ETC…

I’m having some serious health issues so my ability and motivation to create is somewhat diminished although I am still trying to stay active. Hopefully all my health issues will be resolved over the course of the next month or two.

Despite being sick for a few days I made it out for an afternoon hike on Saturday. I worked on some new Temple ov Saturn music this week… after the show at Secret Project Robot next Sunday the 18th I will be taking a break from performing to get back into recording.

November stirs up a lot of sad memories for me… I’m trying to spend as much time as I can in nature to re-center myself, especially after being in so many social situations recently. I accomplish my best work and feel most grounded when I am have minimal social interactions.
