I grew up in the “Garden District” in Mobile, Al.  The memories I have from back then are as varied and numerous as the many amazing characters that walked the streets of S. Georgia Ave.   Azalea Bushes, Sycamore Trees and sidewalks.  Boats canoeing on flooded streets.  When I learned to ride a bike, IRead More…

I’m sorry.  I suck at keeping up with my virtual existence.   It’s partially due to a lack of discipline and partially a strange aversion to telling people what I am up to.  Both are problematic.  So thanks to you for you patience and grace with me.  I know don’t make it easy.  Despite theRead More…

Finally, after years of hoping to record a proper Christmas record, I have – A Collection of Christmas Songs.  The process began last year at a farm house outside of Memphis, TN.  Kenny Hutson joined me for several days of music – away from all distraction – and that serves as the foundation of thisRead More…

Where we are determines so much of what we see.  I am seeing the world from a slightly different perspective these days.  Several weeks ago I got a call from my doctor.  The mole they removed was, in fact, melanoma.  Size.  Clark level.  That was Greek to me.  I only heard that I had cancer. Read More…

Happy New Year!! 2012 Here it is.  What do the planets have in store for us?  Something between the end of days and more of the same.  Paul Simon said, “I know what I know…we come and we go”.  I agree.  With that in mind, this year I resolve live more fully (and consistently) inRead More…

This is a last minute add that I wanted to make you all aware of… Monday, Dec 12th, I will be doing an acoustic show at Callaghan’s in Mobile, AL.  There will be very limited seating…probably around 50 or so.  Kenny Hutson joins me.  Can’t wait for what I am sure will be a veryRead More…

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I just wanted you to know that I have posted a few new painting up that I am really excited about.  You can find them in the “paintings” section.  Also, the show  at Workplay (Birmingham, AL) that was scheduled for 12/10 has been moved to 12/11.  I am hoping to have aRead More…

Nine months ago and now again, tonight, two very different but divinely connected things happened in my sweet life… “and I think to myself, what a wonderful world.” Number five is a healthy baby girl. eliot

Saturday evening, over dinner in Newtown, CT, it occurred to me that it was on this night, 15 years ago, that I met my wife, Lee.  I thought for a minute about all the time that had passed and all the memories we’ve shared.  All the cities we’ve lived in and all of the friendsRead More…

I’m not sure why, but I tend to place Mint Juleps firmly in the warm weather of May…most likely because of the Derby.  But I was thinking – in the south, whiskey is a year round  libation, and mint is a staple in the Christmas season.  So it stands that Mint Juleps should have aRead More…
