New in {fray}: The Scar
Just a thought from 3 June 2003 about .

When it comes to Fray performances, each one is like a dare. So when Fray Cafe 3 came around in March, I challenged myself to tell a revealing story. And what could be more revealing than standing up in a Texas bar and talking about your Bar Mitzvah? So that's what I did. (Wanna hear?)

I got so much positive feedback on the story, I decided to add it to the fray. I hope you'll enjoy reading about how I got The Scar, and I hope you'll add your own story to the end.

This story also welcomes a new illustrator into the fray: Witold Riedel. Wiltold's raw, emotional style in these pages captured the turmoil of those teenage years perfectly. To see more of his work, visit his site.

And Rabbi? If you're out there, I've learned a lot since twelve.

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “New in {fray}: The Scar” that I wrote on 3 June 2003.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “The Two Bit Recordings, Part 2” on 1 June 2003. After this, I wrote “Goodbye, Goldie” on 5 June 2003.
