Matt Penland and Jake Harpster performing “flowerpot music no. 1” by Elliot Cole. I saw this piece live at the 2018 Northwest Percussion Festival and I fell in love with it. This is just one of many great pieces by Elliot Cole.
Summer is here! What are your plans and goals? I am going to be traveling a lot this summer and my summer goal is read more. I am currently reading Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ (Revised Edition). It is a fascinating book about how the gut works. It is the perfect mix of science and “plain English” and I am enjoying reading the book. What are you reading this summer? Leave a comment below.

Summer is around the corner! Hard to believe. What are your summer plans? Are you going to learn a new piece or read some books? Leave a comment below and let me know.

It is something I continue to work on and I hope these posts were helpful. Today’s edition include some posts about productivity, Bullet Journaling and how to make better decisions. Enjoy. (more…)
