Love Song _ new lyrical poem _ February 2019 _ dream song

Love Song

If I tell you
That I love you
And we’ll never be apart
Is that a perfect place to start
So I can win your heart 

If I say it’s forever 
That It will be 
I’m all in
Does that seem
Like a good place to begin

If I take you 
In my arms
Show you that I’m strong
Make you feel I’ll
Never do you harm

Can we share a home
Where will be together 
And never feel alone
Together forever 
In a place of our own

Oh oh what a love song
Oh oh where we belong
No there’s nothing wrong 
Since you came along
My light is always on

*pre-dawn John Conte

*woke up with this fresh song in my head this morning with the words to 
an acoustic guitar melody 
= in my head it sounded like 
a cross between the band Ween and 
Simon & Garfunkel

Chateau Marmont - West Hollywood - Los Angeles, California



If you find yourself in West Hollywood, maybe for Jeff Tweedy @wilco shows, stay at Chateau Marmont. It’s such a lovely place, plenty of room. I stayed there 3 times and here are different views from each time: from my room next to penthouse 1st visit; Buddha prayer pool outside my cottage which was a complementary upgrade 2nd stay; taken from pool area viewing cool passageway to pool cottages 3x. The people help make the experience too. I was surrounded by interesting vibes. And Jim Morrison @thedoors, #gramparsons, #johnbelushi frequented Chateau Marmont. I had a lot of friends come by and met friendly folks there + Bar Marmont. It isn’t touristy. It’s industry hip & authentically local #travel #travelphotography #music #movie #film #writing #fashion #industry #losangeles #westhollywood #california #city #urbanphotography #famous #poet #guest

January Sun _ new poem 2018


January sun
Makes me feel warm 
Inside 
When it’s cold
In the sky
When water freezes
Outside 
But the sun
Rise and shine
Set and rest
Brightly revealing 
Ley lines 
That make me 
Smile 
As I drive
As I walk
As I talk
To myself 
I feel warm
Inside 
Because 
It’s January Sun
