The Back Porch
The back porch is a sanctuary. It requires a special invitation. Here we can let down our guard, sit with a whiskey, and look out into the woods.
I am a musician by training and trade, but I have a deep interest in thinking and writing. For years I have written reflections about Bach and his music, and these have grown into an interest to write about a host of things. I especially like to consider the ideas of art and craft, and how these intersect in all sorts of ways.
On the Back Porch, you will find:
News from the Back Porch (a semi-weekly digest of thoughts, mini-essays, and recommendations)
The BachTalk Podcast (interviews and deep dives into music, primarily the music of J. S. Bach)
Reflections (from the Bach Vespers services at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Terrace Park)
