Get to Know Me

Get to Know Me

Oh, my goodness, I’ve shared quite a few personal details in my blog, but you don’t really know me, do you?  Who’s cranking out all this stuff, clinging to the keyboard like it was an umbilical cord?  Amidst the serious stuff, I’ve tried to interject a bit of my personality, my foibles, and my sense of humor.

I’ve talked a lot about my dad, because he was a musician, and a darn good one, and anything good in me comes from him:

My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man

I am just a living legacy to the leader of the band

~ Dan Fogelberg, Leader of the Band


I got my dad’s bad eyesight, his short height, his Italian passion, might have even gotten a little of his looks — but I did not get his talent.

So I thought I’d go out on a limb and share the man behind the computer keyboard.  Please don’t laugh…  I haven’t had access to a piano in ~30 years.  I used to be able to play this song fairly well when I was a kid.  Before I recorded this video, I’d just printed up the sheet music from the Internet, and practiced it 10 times.  I don’t see well enough to read the sheet music from a distance, so I was stumbling through largely on memory.  In brutal honesty, this is me:

About DogDharma

Dog Dharma is written by a human who loves dogs and who believes dogs have attained enlightenment. The human behind Dog Dharma came from humble origins, has faced many trials, enjoyed many adventures, and taken a path less traveled. He claims no special privilege or expertise, and remains humble. Dog Dharma‘s author has learned a few things along the way, and has much yet to learn. He has been told by many people that he has a talent for writing, and aspires to write a book, but is a little too lazy and disorganized, so his blog will suffice for now. He opens a window into his life in the hope that some of his words may be of comfort, some may be a beacon or warning, and perhaps he will connect with like-minded souls. Everything shared comes from a place of openness and honesty, but with no claim that he possesses the Truth. People and places mentioned should be taken as pseudonyms. In many cases, details may be an amalgamation of actual events disguised to protect the “innocent.” Nothing written is to be taken as actual fact, but as the author of Dharma Dog‘s limited understanding. From the mouths of the Beatles: In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make
