Big Gratitude

I’m home from the #MusesontheRoad tour, and it was as beautiful a dream-come-true as I could have ever lived.  We’re all home safe and sound, we all still love each other, and we did far better than break even on everything.  If this sounds far from the norm, I think it is, though I don’t think it should be.  Everyone I know and love certainly deserves the kind of happiness and success that Renée, RJ, Ginger, Lynda, and I experienced together over the past several weeks on the road.

We had two more sold-out shows (thank you, Portland!) as well as crowds that were all in with every note, everywhere we went, even in Albuquerque on a Tuesday night.  It was bliss, y’all.  I am more than a little sure that we’ll be doing this again sometime, and I live for that day.  We even got some down-time at the Quileute Oceanside Resort in La Push, Washington, walking along the wild shoreline and watching agog from our suite’s back deck as fierce little fishing boats rode the surf resulting from an offshore tropical storm! Talk about intense!  Our thanks extend to the Quileute tribe for sharing the beauty of their coastline land with us.  Learn more about the tribe and the reservation here

Keep an eye on my YouTube channel– I’ll be posting more song clips from the #MusesontheRoad live streams very soon.

This #BlacklivesmatterFriday weekend is rife with awesome hashtags like #shopsmall and #optoutside.  I shared an emotional live video on Facebook this morning because my heart was overflowing a bit.  We’re all connected, and for me and my indie music colleagues, every little download really does count.  Some people may not believe me, but it’s true.  I’m just so grateful, every day, for each and every person who appreciates my music.  It helps that we still number only in the tens of thousands, I think, which are numbers I can reasonably wrap my brain around.  🙂  The truth is that this sweet life of mine wouldn’t be possible without folks who believe in scrappy, fierce indie songwriters- that would be you.  


So thank you, again and again, for being here. 


Here’s my Krampus carol in case you find a use for one. 🙂 ‘Tis the season, after all.
