After working on a few dozen pieces of music and lyrics over the last nine months, I picked out fifteen this month that seemed reasonably congruent if not adjacent, and spoke to sentiments it's not difficult to sense among at least a plurality of folks I know and care about. I hope they appear able to reflect on and refract some of those sentiments to a limited extent.

Today, I took a look at four of the pictures I took very early and very late on Wednesday. November 9, 2016 in downtown and Uptown Oakland, and figured Instagram's new carousel feature would be a way to show how I decided which ones worked on the cover for what I guess is my latest album, available now on Bandcamp exactly a year after my last one.

Please take it in the spirit it is offered, as a look at where some friends and acquaintances are, and where others may head in months and years to come.

Wet streets and red and green lights in the distance look a little like Christmas waiting for us near the end of the year. Weatherman says ain't nothing but rain in the forecast but we know it won't last so we abandon our umbrellas with cheer. If it comes down and we get soaked we can dry out at our leisure. Let's laugh it off like it's a joke, this world spins at our pleasure
