micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.
Please send him email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

Head over to jazzreview.com and check out my concert review, "Composition is Improvisation is Composition is Improvisation: Hamid Drake and Michael Zerang's Summer Solstice Concert."
If you read it, you might notice these lines:
This performance was significant to me because it came near the end of my nearly year and a half living in Chicago and seeing live improvised music on a nightly basis. Soon I will be returning to my native state of Michigan to further my career in journalism.Yep I'm moving to Michigan and, more specifically, at least for a little while, back to Cadillac. Don't ask as I don't feel like explaining right now.
Despite how much I'll miss Chicago and The Reporter, it is a good thing. I'm tight for time right now but hopefully next week I will explain what I'm up to as well as give some more reflections on Chicago. For now, let me just say that I don't believe the future has all been written by the past and I'm not sure I felt that way when I came to Chicago.
One more thing is that it will be interesting to see if the people of Cadillac are more into flying American flags or Detroit Red Wings flags.
