As usual, autumn is a beautiful season that brings brilliant colors, nostalgic winds, and introspection to our hearts. Leaves float and fly and dance before us just before landing atop other leaves that flew and danced before them. Like the falling leaves, our days that have swirled through the months of this year have blown about, changing us a little each day. I believe this is what causes this time of reflection as we see the year nearing it’s end, wondering where we’ve been and what the new year may bring.
This has been a year of difficult challenges and sweet discoveries for me. My winter was cold, but through the months of spring into summer, I grew more comfortable in solitude, and even took a solo road trip across the picturesque southwest to the deep forest redwoods of California. That’s a lot of miles and hours for imagining, planning, scheming – and lots of space to sing out loud along with my favorite songs.
This fall, I am planning some interesting and exciting recording projects that I hope to sink into in the coming months. I will update as time will allow. I have some nice concert dates coming up round the corner in the Bay Area of California, then a nice swing through Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, and of course, a gig in beautiful Chicago. I hope you will consider attending one (or more!). I will make sure to have copies of many of my CDs, and will include the special my latest, “After The Fair” and the Holiday CD too. (Nice Christmas present ideas!).
I am enjoying the crunching leaves underfoot, conjuring up ideas for a festive holiday season, and counting my blessings of some of the best friends and family I could ever hope for. Thanks for being part of it!
