Okay, so there's what I do... and then there's what this guy does.

(Window to a consummate artist's psyche: given what he does the moment he's done, what do you think really bugged him? I find that one thing comforting. The rest? Oy!)

And then, stepping back in time a bit, there's nothing about this that isn't fun.

And then there's fun of another kind:

Finally, the drummer who inspired me to pick up the sticks in the first place, back in the early '70s, Danny Seraphine (formerly of Chicago, now of California Transit Authority):

Danny Seraphine, ah yes. Nothing like his classic drum solo on "I'm A Man" from the original Chicago Transit Authority two-record album.
