I started writing pretty late in life, back from the wars, and a little bit shell shocked I believed that writing things down would clear my head. A journalist that was in the same AA group read my stuff and said I should continue. The second Chronicles was aimed at helping people that were like me, a seemingly hopeless case. I was jokingly voted the least likely to succeed in the AA!
I thought that Part II would be the end of it, no more adventures to write about... I was wrong.

The year was 1987. I was turning 40 and wanted to start something new in life, so I went to hear the City Light Orchestra in Kansas City, Missouri, a great jazz band.
During break, I asked the saxophonist – Ahmad Alaadeen –– if he could recommend a saxophone teacher for me. He said he was teaching at the Charlie Parker Foundation for the Performing Arts and, to my surprise, he said he would teach me.
Alaadeen wanted me to play flute, but instead I started on alto sax. He went to a pawnshop to help me get my first sax. I knew nothing about music. My background was ballet. I had established a new ballet school designed to meet the unique needs of home-schooled students. Since I had never taken a music le ... read more
