New Song! Tide's Turning (feat. Ben Sollee!)

New Song! Tide's Turning (feat. Ben Sollee!)

Oh you guys... today is a treat! Many of you know that last spring I stole myself away to go live with my Atlanta family and care for my grandpa (aka Poppop.) One of the really beautiful parts of being near this side of the family was that I got to hear all these stories that I hadn't heard before. I mean, I had heard the stories, but hadn't heard them with such detail!

FB Livestream: Every day I fall in love

FB Livestream: Every day I fall in love

Songwriting, authoring, teaching, mentoring: these are the things I have to offer. I know I could do almost anything else, but the pull of song and story is much stronger than my resistance to it. So I happily fall in love. Every day I fall in love.

Masterclass in Minimalism & Songwriting

I've pulled the trigger on some rather large lifestyle changes. Without divulging too many details (ones not yet ready to be revealed) I can say that Marie Kondo and minimalism have been heavy on my mind.

Concert Window: Songs in a Stairwell (aka to the Moon and Back!)

Yesterday I took advantage of the perfect lighting and acoustics in a stairwell by *almost* spontaneously giving a little concert via the killer website, Concert Window! These shows are always so crazy. It blows my mind that I can press a couple buttons and send myself to the moon and back down for ANYONE, ANYWHERE to see!

Pink Floyd & The Lists Which Need Revision

Pink Floyd & The Lists Which Need Revision

Per a friend's expert suggestion, I watched the director's cut of "Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii" on Friday night. I was snuggled up in bed, watching it on my phone, propped up with a pillow. 

About 20 minutes in, there I laid crying. Like a baby.

2014 in Review: Winter & Spring

2014 in Review: Winter & Spring

For the last 7 years I've done what I call an "Annual Review."  It's kinda involved. I basically look at my entire year financially, relationally, time-wise, artistcally, etc. I get out old receipts, look through the whole calendar, scan through emails, and more... I'm asking myself... "What went well? & What didn't go so well?"
