songwriting, Songalive! Bay to Breakers, et. al

It's a music week: Monday was a great Song Collective meeting at Wendy's. A dozen of us trading brand new songs in Wendy's living room over dinner. I'm appearing several times this week in different musical configurations, tonight at a Songsalive! showcase and Sunday during and after Bay to Breakers (no, I'm not running and playing but surely someone will be). I'd love to see you.......
