    So I'm standing at the kitchen sink, slicing carrots. Then I look down and go, "hey wait THAT was not a carrot". I tried to see if I could sort of stick it back on. Hoo boy!

    My Wusthof chef's knives have some German writing advertising that they are kochmesser knives. Knowing how sharp they are, I will definitely take their word for it!

    I have had a recurring dream for many years that the fretboard on my 73 Les Paul is falling apart with chunks breaking off. Very disturbing. It's one of those dreams that always seem like it's really happening. I own a lot of other guitars, but the dream is always about this particular guitar. Maybe because I bought it new in '73 and was my first electric.

    I dream at times that I've killed someone, or that I'm incarcerated.

    Always relieved and grateful when I wake up, and reminded that things could always be worse

    The ones where I slide down a steep roof and then go over the edge. Those are bad and thankfully, rare.

    Trying to crawl across the highway before the oncoming traffic gets me. Not able to walk, and crawling is like molasses.

    My recurring nightmare, is that by some horrible fate, I’ve ended up back in my old job selling cars. Oh, the horror!

    I taught guitar in a music store from the time I was 17 until I left for graduate school at 31. That and gigs were my only source of income, and I did OK. My teaching routine usually started at 3:00 or 3:30 and went until 7:30 or 8:00, averaging 40-60 students a week.

    Every day that I went in, I would check a little message box in the store to see if I had any cancellations or new student requests. I rarely took a day off and only had 1 week long break (during which I copied out my first string quartet in ink). Eventually, I turned over my students to my best student, and split for Chicago for the next phase of my life as a non-guitar-teacher, professor wannabe. That was in 1984.

    Just last night I had a variation of a recurring dream that I have had for decades. In the dream, I had forgotten my teaching schedule, and especially had trouble understanding how the different days and times were scheduled. Was I supposed to teach on Thursday, or did those students all quit after I hadn't shown up for 35 years? Sometimes, I would even conjure up an imaginary student or two, as I had to figure out who to reschedule.

    My greatest real life fear was that a student would arrive for a lesson, but I'm not there (nor did I call to cancel). For some reason, that was the worse thing that I could imagine doing.
