Preview of coming attractions

I’ve got the daily letters on climate change up and running, and my New Years’ Resolution is now on its second month with no signs of flagging. Good for me.

You can expect more in the “How to Practice” series; there is a lot left in the interview I did with Brian O’Neill long ago that can be brought up to date and published here.

Arthur the Karela plant is growing, um, like a weed. Expect more pics of Arthur and his/its fellow Karelas in the weeks to come.

More photoblogging. I don’t have much more to offer in the way of Jazz photos, but there are a lot (a LOT) of India images. I will also find some more goofy signs and typographical errors that deserve immortality.

Random musical goodies, either stuff I’ve put up on Vimeo or Youtube myself, or some things I’ve found for your/my enjoyment.

Some more musical history from me. I’ve been doing a lot of digitizing recently and there is some great stuff that I’ll be posting more often.

About twelve years ago I started work on a book on learning processes in Indian music, and I got about 600 pages worth of material before I set the project aside (we bought a house, and I turned into a contractor for a while; then we had a child and I turned into a parent). Rather than let it sit forever, I’ve decided to pull selected sections, edit them a bit, and toss them up for your enjoyment. Please let me know what you think. I was going to call the book “Singing Imagination” (Khyal literally meaning “imagination” in Arabic), so that phrase will be seen from time to time in the tags.

There will also be some more writing on education as I get things put in order in my office. Wait and see.

Thank you for your blog and all the wonderful resources that you put on it. Looking forward to what you have in the coming weeks.
