Ugh, I am not looking forward to this new season very much. First Matt Smith, now Jenna Coleman leaving, and I am wary of the new actor Peter Capaldi for the Doctor. The show, along with the Doctor, is supposed to get “darker,” with a storyline that shows that “these adventures can hurt.” Not sounding good, but I hope I eat my words later. This show has not disappointed me yet.
The beginning of the summer feels like another lifetime… Did it really happen? @erictchin #italy #sentimentalsaturday (at the Italian Alps)
Trying to learn how to live more in the moment… Like this pup.

"Hey did you know octo-bears love the rain?" Probably a recent favorite of mine. (Yes he has more than 8 legs.) #ink #inkdrawing #drawing #moleskine #pens #pendrawing #octobear #rain
This one was fun and a little different- combined idea of fantasy creatures and repeating abstract patterns at different levels. #ink #inkdrawing #art #moleskine #drawing #pens #pendrawing
Thought I would share a few drawings from this summer. “Cloud Castle” #drawing #ink #inkdrawing #pens #art
"Wonderous Love" improv in "Kodaly" tuning.
A few weeks ago I was practicing the Kodaly solo sonata when a friend asked if I could play the traditional American hymn tune “Wonderous Love” (aka “What Wonderous Love is This”). I realized that this hauntingly beautiful tune worked really well with the B minor Kodaly tuning (G and C strings down a half-step). I started messing around and recorded this improvisation on my phone.
The photography I shot around Taos, NM last summer when I was there for the Taos School of Music. I just picked these shots for the video because I thought they went well with the music.
Let me know what you think!
