Today is graduation day in our small town. Coaching both football and baseball at the high school over the past twenty years has given me some wonderful friendships. All of the students that I've had the privilege to know and coach, plus teachers that have become part of my life.

Mike Harrison teaches English at our high school and has also taken on the role of one of my 'blues buddies'! His guitar playing is the only thing that gives what we do any chance of being called music!!

Mike asked me to do a painting for him of Esa Pekka Salonen, a conductor and person that Mike has long admired. I look for any excuse to get downstairs so....
