Natasha Stagg: What have you been up to lately?

Ryen Eggleston: Lately i’ve been desperate for work (I am a self-employed house painter and these have been dark days for work of that sort).
On the flip side my life as a musician keeps me busy (and sane) in a varied assortment of projects.

NS: How long have you been in Tucson?

RE: This is my 10th year in Tucson, and I’ll probably be here a while longer.
its good to take breaks and travel. Coming back always feels good.

NS: What are you reading?

RE: Currently I am re-reading, again, God Bless You Mr.Rosewater, by Kurt Vonnegut. It’s still a real gem of American literature even after the third or so time.

NS: Suggest something to do in Tucson.

RE: Ride your bike through the alleys instead of the streets; many wonders await thee there.

NS: Suggest something to read.
