Loftcube

Beautiful web site for Aisslinger’s Loftcube. Now if one could only carry a loftcube inside a backpack onto a suitable roof… then pull a lever and watch it assemble itself and voila – you are squatting in style on top of a 30 storey office building and they’ll never know you are there. I would love to put one of these up as a tea house and practice room…

Studio

Beautiful sunny Monday, which Jon and I spent in my studio. We went in at 11AM and somehow time accelerated and when I looked on my watch again it was 6PM and Jon was leaving and my stomach was growling because we had forgotten to eat lunch. And guess what – now it is snowing again…

What a mix of songs this album is: recorded over a timeframe of about three years, and containing 4 christmas songs, 2 classical pieces, and 6 original pieces. Did I mention it is snowing again?

Water

It is difficult to imagine that water shortages could be a problem on a planet that is 75% water, however, only a tiny fraction of the earth’s water is drinkable and overconsumption and pollution of water supplies have stressed the world’s fresh water systems to the brink.

Today, over 1.2 billion people don’t have access to clean water to live. Every year, over 5 million people (many of them women and children) die of water-related diseases which are the world’s leading cause of illness. Additionally 2.4 billion people lack basic sanitation and services that exacerbate these diseases.

World water day was last week, March22nd.

Bullet

Doesn’t this make you sad that we don’t have a train culture in the USA?
