With the heaviest of hearts, I said a teary farewell to my best friend Luna last week. The grief is simply boundless, but so also is my gratitude to everyone who supported her with good wishes, goodwill and expert care. Last summer, we saved her leg, and her life.
Just a week ago Luna was out trotting along her favorite trail, drinking long and deep from a cold stream and having fun.
Conducted rights and clearances, music supervision and a little script consulting on the really cool independent feature Tim Timmerman, Hope of America. When Director Cameron Sawyer saw an old TV interview with me, he offered up a small role in the film!

Back in ancient times, when ice was colder, fire was hotter and drink was stronger (and cheaper) than it is now — yes, the 1970s — I played drums in a fusion jazz band in Los Angeles. Did some really fun gigs at celebrated clubs like The Troubadour and The Whiskey-A-Go-Go.
