Orange T-Shirt Day, every September 30

Orange T-Shirt Day, every September 30

I'm a retired guy who changed his name from Joe Blough, figuring it would make me feel more unique. I'm soft-spoken, a quiet person who prefers to listen and learn. Consequently,  I express things mainly by writing, whether songs, stories, poetry or doodling. I don't claim to be brilliant at anything, but I hope you find something here that touches you, makes some part of your inner world feel good.

Musical philosophy: I'm a fan of simplicity, and in my own music the general rule is - though of course not always - "less is more". It seems to me that music should not be made complex just for the sake of being complex - and if it touches you on some spiritual, emotional or intellectual level, it doesn’t matter who created it or when or where.

 I am managed by my cat Louie,

who advises me on all matters of import.
