What's Up Right Now
As a reflection of the times, I've launched a year-long project called I Remember Travel. I'm looking at this as a vIrtual, web-based platform to share stories, photos and music inspired by my pre-pandemic travels, with some occasional thoughts on where we go from here.

Backwaters is my 2020 music-art project inspired by living here surrounded by the natural beauty of the Upper Mississippi River Valley of the Driftless Region of the American Midwest.
Mike Starling's original music is heard on numerous recordings and soundtracks, and his stories and photos have been featured in books, films, mags and other media. Among his other interesting career moves, he has edited a beer magazine, played bass in a reggae band and sold potato chips door-to-door.
