  12. <title>Thursday Breakfasts</title>
  13.    <link></link>
  14.    <description>&lt;p&gt;For the last two Thursday mornings, I&amp;#8217;ve attended a business person&amp;#8217;s breakfast in &lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; href=&quot;;&gt;Kingston&lt;/a&gt;. I&amp;#8217;m quite amazed at how successful this has been at making new connections with business people, networking, and even getting referrals for web work.&lt;/p&gt;
  15. &lt;p&gt;Cory first told me about it, when we were looking into the site, and we intended to go in many times. However, for one reason or another it just never happened. I wish I had made it more of a priority!&lt;/p&gt;
  16. &lt;p&gt;I have heard of these sorts of things before, but didn&amp;#8217;t really believe they would make much of a difference. I was being naive. Of course, where there are business people getting their enterprise off the ground, they are going to want to network with other start-ups to service their various needs, and to make their own services available.&lt;/p&gt;
  17. &lt;p&gt;It&amp;#8217;s a bit of a commitment&amp;#8212; a few hours a week that I would normally be working, but I have come to see that it pays for it&amp;#8217;s own time. I will be committing to this for the foreseeable future.&lt;/p&gt;

  27. <title>Free for the Rest of July</title>
  28.    <link></link>
  29.    <description>&lt;p&gt;I&amp;#8217;ve decided to give away all of my music for free until the end of July.&lt;/p&gt;
  31. &lt;p&gt;Why would I do that, you might ask?&lt;/p&gt;
  33. &lt;p&gt;I&amp;#8217;m hoping that by sharing my songs for free, more people will be inclined to download and listen to them, and even tell their friends.&lt;/p&gt;
  35. &lt;p&gt;So if you&amp;#8217;ve never given my music a chance, maybe this would be a good time to try a few songs?&lt;/p&gt;
  37. &lt;p&gt;If you like instrumental music, I recommend trying &lt;a href=' Silver/Moving On Again - Instrumental Improvisations' target='_blank'&gt;Moving On Again: Instrumental Improvisations&lt;/a&gt;, and if you like piano ballads, start with &lt;a href=' Silver/12 Girlfriends' target='_blank'&gt;12 Girlfriends&lt;/a&gt; or &lt;a href=' Silver/Sunny Days' target='_blank'&gt;Sunny Days&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;
  39. &lt;p&gt;Don&amp;#8217;t Stop There - while you&amp;#8217;re at it, download Ghost Town, Seek, ChristmaSongs, If We Can, and Bottled Inside!&lt;/p&gt;
  41. &lt;p&gt;Spread the word!&lt;/p&gt;
  43. &lt;p&gt;Jason&lt;/p&gt;

  51. <title>Wrote a New Song - James</title>
  52.    <link></link>
  53.    <description>&lt;p&gt;I think this song will be called &amp;#8220;James,&amp;#8221; after my great grandfather James Abrams. He died when my grandfather Abrams was 2 years old. Shortly thereafter my grandfather&amp;#8217;s mom died as well.&lt;/p&gt;
  55. &lt;p&gt;So consequently I don&amp;#8217;t know anything at all about these people&amp;#8212; at least, very little. When I stare at their photos, I can&amp;#8217;t help feeling an eerie connection; I have his eyes, he looks a bit like my cousin.&lt;/p&gt;
  57. &lt;p&gt;I love you great grandfather, whoever you were.&lt;/p&gt;
  59. &lt;blockquote&gt;
  60. &lt;h3&gt;James&lt;/h3&gt;
  61. &lt;p&gt;One hundred years ago, Living in poverty&lt;br/&gt;
  62. Your face stares like I know secrets long forgotten&lt;br/&gt;
  63. &lt;br/&gt;
  64. But I do not; Only photos remain&lt;br/&gt;
  65. We forgot And there&amp;#8217;s none left to blame&lt;br/&gt;
  66. &lt;br/&gt;
  67. Your sorrow frozen in time, Hardly history,&lt;br/&gt;
  68. Yet your eyes seem to cry,  &amp;#8220;Don&amp;#8217;t you remember me?&amp;#8221;&lt;br/&gt;
  69. &lt;br/&gt;
  70. We cannot. Only photos remain &lt;br/&gt;
  71. What a loss What misfortunate shame&lt;br/&gt;
  72. &lt;br/&gt;
  73. &lt;b&gt;Chorus:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br/&gt;
  74. I strain to hear your call on the wind.&lt;br/&gt;
  75. To read your thoughts, to picture your life back then&lt;br/&gt;
  76. You wear my face, do you dream my dreams&lt;br/&gt;
  77. I stand in your place, I don&amp;#8217;t know what it means;&lt;br/&gt;
  78. No one remembers.&lt;br/&gt;
  79. &lt;br/&gt;
  80. All that you never see; Sightless eyes now&lt;br/&gt;
  81. Staring empty at me, locked in a frame now.&lt;br/&gt;
  82. If I asked for advice What would you tell me?&lt;br/&gt;
  83. A couple words would suffice, what can you foresee?&lt;br/&gt;
  84. &lt;br/&gt;
  85. We forgot and there&amp;#8217;s none left to blame&lt;br/&gt;
  86. What a loss. What misfortunate shame!&lt;br/&gt;
  87. It&amp;#8217;s all gone, only photos remain&amp;#8230;&lt;br/&gt;
  88. &lt;/p&gt;
  89. &lt;/blockquote&gt;

  99. <title>Reflections</title>
  100.    <link></link>
  101.    <description>&lt;p&gt;Too much depressing introspection, too often a sense that I&amp;#8217;m letting life slip by without doing something with my gifts. I&amp;#8217;m grasping for that point in life when I can say I that what I created was really important- that I expressed some intangible aspect perfectly.&lt;/p&gt;
  103. &lt;p&gt;Look at me, wondering, aching, seeking. Anybody out there relate?&lt;/p&gt;
  105. &lt;p&gt;~Jason&lt;/p&gt;

  113. <title>Online Version Live</title>
  114.    <link></link>
  115.    <description>&lt;p&gt;It&amp;#8217;s been a number of years since &lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; href=&quot;;&gt;ServiceBuilder&lt;/a&gt; has seen any action, but now I&amp;#8217;d like to announce that the live version is available to use for free, to anyone who can use it.&lt;/p&gt;
  117. &lt;p&gt;Technically, it&amp;#8217;s still in &amp;#8216;beta,&amp;#8217; which means that nothing is guaranteed&amp;#8212; you might have trouble depending on your browser, your operating system, and God-forbid, you may even lose your data.&lt;/p&gt;
  119. &lt;p&gt;But it&amp;#8217;s been live for about a month, and the testers so far have not had any serious problems, so if you&amp;#8217;re interested, head on over.&lt;/p&gt;
  121. &lt;p&gt;Thanks!&lt;br/&gt;
  122. Jason Silver&lt;/p&gt;
