I feel very out of touch with you all and I’m sorry about that! This summer seems to be flying by and every week seems to bring challenges that have frankly been a little overwhelming.
I am hoping that some creativity comes out of all of this worrying and anxiety, but more importantl I just trying to learn from it!
My brother, seen here on the right, is doing well and some of you may know that he was the inspiration for my song Peter. I have always tried to use writing to connect and process how I feel. I Skype with him monthly and the words of that song ring true every time. “When you see my face you smile, Do you know me, can you show me” He can : )
Sometimes I don’t even know how I feel until I sing it back to myself and realize how wise I am! lol.
This year has seen a couple of job changes, and I’m still not sure if the choices I have made will turn out to be the right ones but I’m plugging along trying to make the best of things. I also broke my toe a couple of weeks ago. I kicked my guitar case at band practice, accidently! Very annoying, but I’m on the mend.
I have also decided to stop drinking. I don’t think anyone would call me a big drinker, but it’s been a crutch for me emotionaly that I realize does more to make me sad that it does to make me happy. Not a good solution!
So I’m starting fresh with things, writing again and turning down those free drink tickets that come with every show! Hot me up on the right night and I’ll give you one : )
Hope to see some of you at the Aster. It’s this Sunday night. July 24th. Despite my emotional roller coaster, we always put on a great show : )
Thanks for the support and love. I feel it and I appreciate it.
