Hey everyone i thought it was about time for a new blog,..yea,..almost 7 months later,..hahaha. well, here is summer and here i am half way ready to make a new record. I am coming up on the year anniversary of releasing "Still Right Here" and reflecting on what a wonderful,crazy,full,inspiring year it has been. thanks to everyone for supporting this last record. I can tell you that my new material and what i am "hearing" is almost a whole new bag of tricks..meaning ...i envision my next record to have more breath, more space, harder lyrics, starker roomier acoustic, almost like playing a show in an abandoned old barn with the smell of mold (growth). i am going to have to trust that you will like it, because it is going to be different,..very different the Still Right Here. I feel really good inside and out i feel a calmness i haven't had in a a long long time, i feel connected to the ground and more caring of my life and well being than ever before. I have internalized the fact that, i am a grown up and i love it:)
s0, its 2012,..what this means i don;t really know except that its a new year, the opportunity to start new and leave the old. 2011 was filled with joy and laughter, hardship and tears; like most years. I find it's easier to vamp on the hard times, but this year i am going to make a conscious effort to concentrate on the good times:) I am enjoying the winter months(even with no snow) to write, reflect, grow, cook nourishing food, spend quality time with my family and friends and hopefully write more. I have also taken out the paint brushes again, mostly to just allow myself to make mistakes and to see my thoughts and dreams in color. The spring doesn't seem far away, and i am looking forward to another year of letting go and letting in. I feel a deeper understanding of the whole "we only have today" concept and for that and even that alone, i am grateful. Happy New Year.
it's 11pm, i am in bed getting ready to watch boardwalk empire...love that show. Realized i left for the west coast 9 days ago with Shawn Wolfgang (my tour manager) and we still haven't changed the clock off east coast time in the car. I had a great day today, went into Berkeley CA on Telegraph Ave. to do an instore performance at Rasputin and was able to get a HUGE salad at my favorite place in Berkeley called Intermezzo then I went out to dinner for Japanese Hibachi yummmm. Anyway, i am really looking forward to teh show at Freight&Salvage tomorrow night and then we head into LA:) hope everyone is doing well thanks for coming out to my shows!
