summer of 2016, looking ahead…

Time really does fly. We’ve reached June already, the start of the hiking/summer season and I anticipate a very busy season for us here. Some photos from Sunday’s hike at Alderfer/Three Sisters open space park in Evergreen, usually our first hike of the season…

There is a new song in the Nights on Venus News section.

3sisters_09craig_hiking02I’m currently working on new songs in the studio… makin’ headway, finishing them up. Taking a more balanced approach this year (and also in 2015 and moving forward), a more relaxed approach to creative work, allowing more time for these little trips Erin and I take into the mountains, getting out into the natural beauty of the wilderness, and especially now as summer is upon us and we’re making plans to move up to the mountains within the next year, year-and-a-half. There have been many changes over the last few years and this year of 2016 in particular so far; we’re not even halfway through. And in these times of accelerated changes it’s good and necessary to unplug from the Internet as much as possible – the bane now of our collective existence – and get away from the constant ‘urbanity’ of it all. Well anyway, that’s where we’re headed.

Yours truly, from another incarnation... From 1982, promo shot with Sound & the Furies, Dallas, TX
Yours truly, from another incarnation, c. 1982… and an extra set o’ hands…The keyboard is a Roland Paraphonic (505) which had some pretty decent organ sounds but not much else, thus the effects pedals are on the keyboard itself where I could do some real-time tweaking, and an extra pair o’ hands would have been welcome…
