Kick It

I’d like to kick this Texas heat wave into the next galaxy.  We had a great time frolicking in Montana and Washington, where it was usually in the 80’s as a high.  Here in Austin the low at night is about 77, and it’s been 105 – 111 during the day.  Our air conditioner can barely keep the place at 85…but the AC works and the electricity bill is paid that’s the important thing.

In a couple of weeks the fall session for Rubicon Artist Development begins.  Folks will start or continue on their paths through the program to gain momentum and fulfillment in their musical lives, and I’ll be assisting Daniel Barrett with things around the studio.

I will also be participating in Rubicon’s krav maga class twice a week…Dan is implementing this as part of the Rubicon Year course of study, because great music comes from great people, and part of being a great person is being well-rounded, balanced, and of sound mind and body.

According to Wikipedia, Krav Maga is a “noncompetitive eclectic martial art system developed in Israel that involves striking techniques, wrestling and grappling, mostly known for its extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks, and is taught to regular and special forces in Israel.”

GRAPPLING.  COUNTER-ATTACKS.  I can’t wait.  I’m sure I’m going to get my arse handed to me the first few weeks, but I hope to grow into it.

Strong like ox.
