NOTE: Offline during move!

THE HERMIT CRAB (AKA Bodhi Bill) is in the midst of moving to a new shell in another sea far from Spokane—to the Virtual Ocean of Reinvention in Reno, Nevada. Once settled in, likely June 1st, he will return to making records, posting blogs and seeking gigs. Your patience is much appreciated.

Postscript 2: “Bodhi” Bill?

BODHI, pronounced “Bow-Dee,” is a Sanskrit word meaning “awakening.” It seems to capture a common theme underlying my songs—awakening to the mysteries of
life. It also differentiates me from the hundreds of thousands of other “Bill Millers,” including a Native American rock star.

Postscript 3: What Is This?

A LOGO? A squiggle? Four dots and a line? Well, yes. But it does have a name, Erawa. To find out why, go HERE



“COME, COME, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.” — RUMI

BodhiBill.com is all about the journey. And you.

*Sanskrit for “Awakening.”
