REally fun and challenging to play with Roger Turner and Brodie West last night. I think it is the first time
I have ever played a set of music th at is one tune, non stop full out think Cecil Taylor (not me, but Roger...) Would have been nice to have a mic for Brodie.

I look forward to trying that again, there is a lot to learn and will I practise that?

choosing guitars is a funny thing. I have been playing my strat at home lately and really like it again!

I always associate my group Jazzstory with my 175 but I am thinking of only taking my strat for a change.

This is still a week away and things change. I have some other gigs this week so we shall see. I am playing Friday
night at the Now Lounge with Brodie West. We are playing a double bill with an interesting STring Trio.

Life can be so exciting. Even in its most tedious forms like reading the Saturday paper on a rainy Sunday
morning. (my poor sister is running a roadrace at the Zoo this morning...go Heath Go!!)

I am excited by the future of the Drake Hotel on Queen. Sounds like a cool future hang for artists.

The Visual arts section looks pretty good today too...havent really dug in yet.

The sports is silly. Why write three articles about the pathetic state of NHL hockey? Personally, I think
hockey has no problems (okay, sure my team lost 7-1 last night...and I watched every painful minute)

If you dont like hockey anymore like many sports media folks, I think you have lost the last little bit
of remaining child like imagination and creativity. Perhaps you should stop watching and read obituaries
or spend time reading stock market reports...Hockey rules!!

I am enjoying the new recording I just received from this summers tour of Jazzstory in Halifax. It leaves
me questioning some of my new compositions but even the process is exhilirating.

Enjoy the rain, drop me a line, let me know about your blog. Ill read it. I promise.
