It’s Jam Time

True Legends

Chris, as most of you know, is a storyteller. A musical storyteller, if you will. All his songs are just that: stories.

It Will Soon Be Time To Be On The Road Once Again!

Hey, Ya’ll! After a rainy, chilly weekend, the clouds are finally lifting – just in time for Monday. LOL! Is that some form of of Murphy’s Law or someone’s idea of a joke? This entire last 12 months have seemed like someone’s idea of a joke. And, not a funny one. Many of our lives […]

Wonder and Magic

Wonder and magic are things that are, tragically, in short supply right now. The fact that we each wake up in the morning and have the gift of another day on God’s green earth is, truly, wonderful and magic. That’s how we should each live every day, don’t you think? Always look for all the […]
