I tend to procrastinate and I love coffee. Over the last five years, I’ve been taking improv classes that have been a blast.

I have played piano on and off since I was about… well, whatever age I was in this photo proving my claim.

Child piano prodigy

I have played guitar, fiddle and congas. Someday I want to learn the cello. I also tend to dabble. I have lots of interests, and can be indecisive.

I dabble in photography and art and, as I said, I’m interested in a lot of things. I’m am apt to write about anything from improv to singing bowls to beach glass. It could seem random even, but it’s not.

The first time I heard the word ‘random’ used as a name was in the book, Nine Princes in Amber* by Roger Zelazny. Random was the youngest of the nine princes. All I remember off the top of my head is that he plays drums and likes gliding. He’s a little pesky, and a bit of a smartass.

Plus he’s the only Prince still alive who has virtually no claim on the throne, yet in the end he’s chosen by the Unicorn – it’s this whole thing. But enough about the story. I just thought Random sounded cool as a person’s name, and I also liked the character in the book. Ergo the name of this blog!

One last thing (for now). I reserve the right to change, add to, or delete any parts of this page. Maybe. Someday.

* When I read Nine Princes in Amber, it was part of a five-book series. That series is right near the top of my favorite books of all time. I recommend it.

    – it’s this whole thing. That made me laugh. I have never met you, but somehow I could hear you say it. I think I’m going to . . .borrow it.

      I’m really glad that made you laugh!

      Borrow away! (I probably borrowed it myself.)
