Early on a Sunday Morning

Well, it's not so early, but it's still morning.  I've been putting the finishing touches on the new website.  It is a minimal affair--very spacious and pretty straightforward in terms of functionality.  It really is just the central hub through which everyone will be able to find my music or find me anywhere online.  I decided to just keep it simple. Flashy + elaborate= cumbersome.  This is so not cool. The new gordonroquedotcom will be unveiled on Nov. 1.  In January, I hope to expand the site to incorporate a few more fun little nuggets.  It's only going to get more beautiful and functional from here. I attended my 8-year-old nephew Bubba's football game yesterday.  His team lost, and he spent a while after the game drenched in tears.  In truth, I thought he played quite well and admirably--tackling a whole lot and taking direction from the coaches pretty seriously.  I wondered if the pain of losing is really something that an 8-year-old should experience.  Somehow, I hope this season was fun for him.  I've got to tell him that, in my experience, for every loss something really wonderful happens in return. I've suffered some sad losses in my life, but they pale in comparison to all that I have gained. It's a beautiful sunny day with blue skies here in Nashville.  Time to frolic. I'll write more later. Have a flower! Hugs, -g

First - let me get this out of the way : I fed a squirrel. I saw a bunch of squirrels so I went back to the RV and got some almonds. I put one in my hand and sat around forever, and finally a squirrel came and ate it. It was the cutest thing ever - he put his little front paws on my hand to eat it. Now I'm obsessed with feeding the squirrels, but I haven't had any more success.

Ok, so let me share a few things with you that will keep you entertained for a while.

I read the book, "The Four Hour Workweek"
