Expanding your limitless self…

Perhaps a year ago I had a dream in which I was telling some friends that I was the “family archivist.”  And when I awoke I thought, “that’s ridiculous, I’m not the family archivist!”  But you know how I am with dreams… I listen. My mother had always wanted me to work on our family […]

Song Drought

Wow. I have no songs right now… no lyrics.  It’s weird.  And terrible.  I miss them. I had moved into writing some visionary lyrics and melodies, snippets of songs surprising me when I least expected them…more spacy songs, more poetry, more beauty.  Then came the coup of November 8. But now, nothing — except a […]

“Arriving” Turned out to be wonderful…

..For an entirely different reason than first intended.  And now it makes sense. Usually I don’t tell many personal stories. I’m just not one of those people whose facebook feed shows a bunch of photos of  my latest meals or family, or personal posts about everyday life. But I want to share something that happened […]

Back in the Studio

I’m so excited to get some time off and just enjoying being in the studio.  So many tunes have been waiting to be finished, some are mixed but not mastered, others still need some overdubs…

Politics is a challenging field, because of the obvious ego/greed base of most of the players in that particular game.  And frankly, it’s exhausting to pay attention to it, much less be involved. […]

Riding the Wheel (again)

This fall is/was amazing, as we wound down the last shows and are taking the winter off.  I’m excited to spend the time nurturing creativity… and tucking away the garden for the year.  Next up will be more recordings.  Yay!  Sometimes the gigs keep us out of writing mode, and especially out of recording mode, […]

Being Uniquely You

The longer I’m on the planet…the less I give a sh*t about what people think.  Don’t get me wrong,  I really, truly care about people’s feelings;  if anything, some of you would probably say that I’ve got an overabundance of empathy.  So why would I say that I don’t care about people’s opinions?

Choosing our thoughts and getting free

I was listening to someone talking about their challanges the other day, and it soon became obvious that each problem was actually based upon a judgement.  Yes, each problem was just a thought – not necessarily reality!  And that got us pondering the myriad of belief systems that we humans have.  Each belief is based […]
