Open Market day has just finished in Savagnano, and hasn’t been swept yet… it’s pleasant, but not all that special…

But Savagnano is a village of great symbolical value.


Here’s where I “Cross the Rubicon”--  literally…


There’s a statue of Julius Ceaser next to an ancient bridge (though not actually used by Ceaser) and a plaque that tells of that very important historical event in the establishing of the Roman Empire.


So before I walk across the stream, I determine to give it a symbolical value in my life’s journey as well.

So what will “Crossing the Rubicon” mean for me?


I think about my “Global Music Project”… I think back on the last 26 months and all the places where I’ve played music over that time. 


I remember how, from November 2007 until June of 2009, it seemed like the “Global” project was starting to falter, and I was looking more like a “Play Music Around my Hometown” project. 

But that’s changed now.  Now with 529 towns and cities in 29 countries, this is undoubtably on its way to being a “Global Project”.


So here in Savagnano, “Crossing the Rubicon” means that I’ve got to keep going until I have literally played music all around the world…


There’s no turning back now… No “starting over”…
