Boston Techjam and Other Venues

broadmoor91513_002This week at Eye On Life we have new poetry by Diane Webster, Donal Mahoney and Christina McClure.   I hope you’ll stop by and check out the fresh stuff.

Unclaimed Freight will be performing at Boston Techjam at 5:50pm on October 3, 2013.   We are one of 5 bands each doing a 1/2 hour set of music between 5pm and 9pm.   The gig has given us a chance to refine our transitions between tunes.  We have been rehearsing pretty hard and I have to say we sounding pretty tight.  We are very much looking forward to the gig.

On the back burner and on their way to the front burner are two major projects I will be heavily involved in for Temple Ohabei Shalom.  I will be back to fill you in on the details when I know them better.  Still simmering away on the back burner will be, for the time being, a project to perform my original music at a local venue.  I recently had a major breakthrough, but I’ll have to talk more about that later, too.

Now it’s time to go to the world of door hardware.  TTYL 😀


Hardware Rising

pawtuckaway82013_006It is interesting to watch life unfold.  I found door hardware to be surprisingly rewarding this week.  For part of that I thank my employers and their customers, and for another part I thank the Door Hardware Institute for publishing my article “Multi-Function Doorways” in the September, 2013 issue of their magazine, Doors and Hardware. 

In other news I wrote a rhythm and blues piece called “Love Is No Fool” and an article about the basic principals of the key machine.  “Love Is No Fool” came out pretty well considering my rudimentary equipment, and despite the rather twisted lyrics is an uncharacteristically conventional kind of tune.  Hmm.

Unclaimed Freight has a huge gig coming up October 3rd in downtown Boston.  More info as that unfolds.  🙂

In other words, I have a LOT going on.  It’s nice.
