New Focus for Blue Mazda

I am no longer on the road, but have decided to revive this blog featuring a subject that was central to my roadtrip, "live music". I will start with the last concert I attended, Justin Townes Earle at Kent Stage and look back over the some highlights of the past year. I've seen some great shows but more importantly I hope to feature artists, venues and media that may help someone else find the great music that is out there and leave the mediocre to the unimaginative pop culture.

Yes, I am home, have been for over a week. Still plan to bring the blog up to date with pictures of my trip. It's nice to be here!

Plano with the Swartzendrubers!

Drove from Austin to Plano on Friday. I have to admit that I felt pretty emotional leaving Megan's house; hate to say goodbye to my rejuvenating experience.

I am embarrassed to say that I had not visited Lynn and Karl in Plano in the 15 years that they have lived there. I will be back sooner than 2024, they certainly made me welcome.

Keri is home and working east of town. She fixed a fabulous dinner for us. David had appointments near Dallas on Friday and a race on Saturday; he was able to join us for dinner. It was fun to have our families together after all these years.

David won his race on Saturday morning and will be back in Dallas next week.

Lynn and I walked a lot at shopping areas and parks.  We ate delicious Indian food and enjoyed  hours of conversation. Good friends.
