Three Drawings from the Past

Tug Miriam de Felice - 1982
I've been looking for images to go with my piano music at the new web site I'm building for putting a lot more of my music on the web.  My piano concerto and three piano toccatas are about boat trips in Alaska.

I scanned some drawings.  These three are from 1974, 1975 and 1982.  They were in notebooks I kept back then, with drawings, interviews and poems.

At the top, is the Miriam De Felice, headed through the Aleutians.

Reflecting on a Prince William Sound rainbow:

Nice drawings especially from a music guy.

Below, you commented about other bloggers. I figure these folks have figured out there is gold in them thar hills-- there is money to be made from Palin discussions. I think they love Palin and they are laughing all the way to the bank with their Palin critical blogs. If Palin went away, they would go away too. I hope both will happen.

I can't stand Palin, and I also can't stand these bloggers-- Palin should be criticized intellectually (that would be a slam dunk) but criticism of Palin should not be a cash profit tool. Some of these folks only care about money-- which makes them similar to Palin.

Actually, most of the anti-Palin blogs continually discuss the intellectual void between Palin’s ears. I hold them in high esteem as they were the first to report the truth about our ex-quitter governor. As a cash cow tool? How?

Phil, I love how you composed the top watercolor. The size of the boat is so endearing! It makes me happy to look at it.

-- we were on our way from Captain's Bay Unalaska to Shemya and Attu in September 1982.

I used to draw a lot. Up until about 1984. Then it dropped off as I began writing music seriously again after a lapse of 12 years.

Just look at one of the blogs, for example you can buy stuff from their shop:

You can also buy a copy of Blind Allegiance through their link:

or you can buy from one of their other advertising sponsors.

Yes, this is a cash cow. Like it or not. They are in it for the money

What makes a cash cow? How much money can one make owning and maintaing a blog? I am just curious, not combative.

I'm curious too. Also there's the book Blind Allegiance. That was probably the big cookie. You should ask them.
