- Cabin 135 — The Writing ProcessRead more...
On my Nature & Literature blog, there’s a new post, Book versus Blog, where I consider the long process of writing Cabin 135, including a dive into the archives.
Book versus Blog references two older Nature & Literature posts: Procrastinations, Deletions, and Questions of Intent (2013) and Where Did the Last Year Go? (2016).
Publishing update as of January 25, 2021:
Cabin 135, A Memoir of Alaska was published in December 2020 by University of Alaska Press as part of the Alaska Literary Series. Cabin 135 can be purchased at independent booksellers like Fireside Books in Palmer, Alaska and Roundabout Books in Bend, Oregon or ordered from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the University of Chicago Press.

- Accordion Arrangements*
Composer, Mark Greathouse, has posted several of my arrangements of his compositions on SheetMusicPlus.com. The SMP page for each piece includes a description, preview of the score, and a recording.
Copy Cat — Quartet for 2 Violins, Flute and Accordion is by turns lightheartedly playful, somber, and meditative. Variations touch on jazz, gypsy, and orchestral themes. The accordion provides rhythm and low register support. The violins draw out the themes often quite hauntingly but also with a section of lighthearted pizzicato. The flute part alternates between high melodies and mid-range countermelodies. This arrangement of Copy Cat is an intermediate piece that is entertaining and fun to play.
*It’s strange to be mentioning ensemble music when “Zoom” meetings have replaced in-person rehearsals. We are, however, looking forward to better times in 2021.
