My Chinese Readers.


I’m grateful for any followers of my blog.

Since I have had Chinese music students, in the past, I’m wondering who is following my blog from China. Might you introduce yourselves? I am having trouble ascertaining who from among my followers list is hailing directly from China. Are you also musicians?

Please enter a comment, below this blog entry, so that I know your name(s).

Thank you!

Bone pain

Stone pain

double-sided migraine.

Aching pain

Breaking pain

Burning, cutting, searing pain.

Gut pain

Butt pain

Shoot me in the head pain.

Do not make me feel pain.

Give your money

To the arts

Listen to them play their parts

I was never good enough

Wouldn’t suck

Give a fuck

I was shit

Out of luck

More pain

No more pain

Do not make me feel
