My connection to Ronni Bennett's blog, Time Goes By, just gets better and better. Yes, she is my personal friend, but more than that, I can always count on something interesting at her place when I visit.
One of her terrific guest bloggers, Peter Tibbles, posted a link to a blog written by artist, Tom Russell.
I have listened to Tom's music before, but had really forgotten about how much I really love his stuff.
His blog is a pleasure to read; postings with just the right length and with that special Texan viewpoint and intelligence that hooks me immediately. (Yes, Tom is originally from L.A, but he was surely given some Lone Star DNA in his pedigree. He calls El Paso home now!)
Put on my to-buy list, "The Man From God Knows Where", and I can't wait to listen to it. His blogsite linked above, his personal website for art and music is here.
Here's Tom as I like him best, all alone with his guitar. This is "Guadalupe":
Also found another music-minded blogger via the comments at Tom's blog that I'll be visting again soon, I Witness, written by Ed Leimbacher.
