Welcome to Another Picture On The Wall

I worked at a college helping students navigate the sometimes rough waters of higher education and life.  Students would come into my office and often share some of their life challenges. I would pick up a pen and doodle as they spoke. It helped me to stay focused on their words. I often drew circles, small, little circles.

Upon her graduation, one of my favorites – and I had many – gifted me a painting she had created in honor of all of our conversations. I treasured it and even used it for the cover of my first album. On that album was a song I wrote titled “Another Picture On The Wall.”  I lost her original painting, along with everything else we owned when the Camp Fire (2018) burned down our house and our community of Paradise, California.

Since then, I have been rebuilding, recreating, rethinking, retreating, reconnecting.
