Temple Dog© is Jim Flanegin, and all of the musical voices in his head. The rhythm of living, Church is the jazz running through me after a good meditation. Church is the active quiet side of my life, the depth of the music reflected in spiritual life, now still going strong. The places I've lived; Indonesia, Spain, California, the heat, the music, the palm trees, the beaches, drinking beers on the balcony of the Hong Kong Café in the equatorial sun and heat, blistering afternoon in the Amazon, Paramaribo, Surinam, and boogey boarding on Thanksgiving Day at El Burro beach, Santa Barbara, wet suit, cold day,Talking Heads on the boombox, or mountain climbing in the Oregon Cascades, near the Three Sisters, Big Bear Lake, snowing on the 4th of July. I live in Northern California with my lovely wife and daughter, and the palm trees, mountains, cloudless blue skies, waves, and beaches. I hope you enjoy the music.
