Love and Rockets

Some good music news for me this month. One of my favorite bands, Love and Rockets have reformed for the Coachella Festival. This is a band my friend John turned me on to about 12 years ago and I instantly fell in love with. Only saw them live once, but hoping that can change now. This is also the first band that my son, Nico went crazy over. At two years old he had his "little tikes" drum out, pounding his heart out to this song.

Welcome back, Kevin, David and Daniel.

Please wipe your feet...

Having spent so much time online reading other people's thoughts and thinking, I wish I'd said that, I've decided to start my own little soapbox here and speak my mind about whatever is on my mind. I'll likely come to find that there's not much on it at all. In a few week's time if I come back here and find no new posts, it'll be as Bowie once wrote, "for all my years of reading conversation, I stand without a word to say."

But for now, I'm being optimistic. Thoughts By Lamplight is a place to share. Named so because I imagine many of my words might come late at night. I like the image of a single lit room in an old brownstone on a rain-soaked city street....preferably London, England. Unfortunately, reality isn't so interesting. It's a modern house on a southern New Jersey street where damn near NOBODY speaks English. At least the single lit room is still in the scenario.

Now we'll see if anything comes to mind...
