One of These Days

I might have posted this before, but this is a picture of me in 1974, trying to learn to play banjo. It’s something I’ve been trying to do on and off ever since. I get into it for a while and then I move on. It makes no sense. Playing banjo is one of the more fun things in life. It’s almost impossible to strum that thing without smiling.

Is there something you’ve been meaning to do but have just never gotten around to it?

Banjo, 1974

I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.

  1. Remember at our lunch this summer, Dan said he played the banjo. Don’t know if you two have seen each other since then but it sounded like you may have some knowledge on some things he wanted to research and he may be a good banjo teacher.
