Garden Grooves 009

Closing down the summer with another episode of Garden Grooves, this one isn't the result of a long weekend of landscaping but instead parsed out in fragments over the last three or four months.

Dance The Parallax

Still on the beach, the tides still turning. Sun slowly sinks into the ocean, melting out across the horizon and into the cool blue waters of the Pacific as the disco pulse spirals off into the evening mist. Bouncing off the “mother sunspot of all time”, some strange connection separated by a gulf of twenty-odd … Continue reading Dance The Parallax

Ambient Sun

Up In The Mountains and the rise of another Quiet Sun January turned out to be a particularly “ambient” month down in The Gardens, which isn't a particularly surprising thing when you're talking about time spent in the dead of Winter.

Students Of The Future

The Bay.. The Bowl... The Universe This time of year — when late autumn begins giving way to the dawning chill of winter — often takes me back to the year 2001, when I spent my days going to community college out in Grossmont and shelving books at the Clairemont Library to make a little money.

The Canyon 25

A selection of records from the Canyonand some that sound like they could have been! Music from the canyon played a large part in my musical youth by virtue of my Dad's formidable record collection.
