I mostly write about Kentucky, my life here. I have a little organic farm with an off-the-grid house, and I share it with my animals and friends. I worked with horses for the first part of my life, then as a respiratory therapist, and retired from that a couple of years ago. Now I focus mostly on music and my farm, trying to make my life a positive one. Basic stuff -- got my first guitar at 12, learned to play by watching my relatives (from Eastern KY), and by listening to the radio and albums. I've always been heavily influenced by Bluegrass and Mountain music, and generally play that all the time, although I listen to a wide range of styles, including jazz, rock, blues and all the rest. .
