You may, or may not, have voted for him (and I didn’t)…

Musician. Composer. Recovering perfectionist. Minister-in-transition. Lover of puns. Hijacker of rock song references. Questioner of the status quo. I'm not really a rebel.

Here are some of my random thoughts along the way. Read along, join in the conversation. Just be nice.
