Greg VessarI love music, I love to travel, and I love to write. My blog "A Thousand Miles from Kansas" combines all three. I am a Kansas boy and an educator on sabbatical. I have lived in many places around the globe and I currently live in northern Japan. Journey with me as I combine my loves of music, travel, and the written word as I navigate through life.
Been missing my brothers! Does not look like a visit is in our near future. Thanks COVID-19.

Craving Return of Live Music
Live Music! Once life returns to “normal”, and I use the term loosely as we just don’t know what the “new normal” will be once we crawl out of our shells, I fear that the concert experience will be very different from our past norm.
