Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

IMG_7650 (1)My interview with Art of the Song (recorded in Albuquerque back in October) airs on radio stations nationally this week! In this full-hour show, inquiring minds can find out why….

  1. I’m throwing imaginary bricks at people in Nashville
  2. I’m sketching wads of gum at the bus stop in San Francisco
  3. I’m seeking over-caffeinated artists at 8 o’clock in the morning

You may think I like the sound of my own voice. Yes and no. I like hearing my voice when it best conveys my true self, whether singing or speaking. Yet I cringe at the vulnerable spots – I’m not Supergirl. Sometimes my voice cracks, I sound insecure or I say the wrong thing.

I suppose those moments are as true as any other. I may make a joke (or sing a note) that falls flat. Maybe you – as a friend or a stranger – will love me more for that vulnerability. Or not. I create, I communicate. Perhaps I make something that helps you feel the light.

Isn’t that why we share? I’ll bring you a cup of sugar. Or some extra veggies from the garden. Make something. Show me what you’ve got.

ArtOfSong (1)Right now, I’ve got this: a wonderful gift from the folks at Art of the Song and The Standing “O” Project, showing me an interpretation of my true self. My stories, my songs (new and old) remind me of all the people who have supported me on this creativity journey. Thanks for helping me communicate.

Hope you’ll carve out some time to listen – while chopping vegetables, sitting by the fire or dancing around the room. Here’s how:

No big party for me this past weekend. No elaborate costume planned. Yet I did get into the spirit of things, in my own way. I watched the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre for the very first time. At home, in my pjs. I'm not a big fan of the … [Continue reading]

A week from today I will be singing my heart out in a land where hundreds of balloons take flight. That's right, I'm headed to New Mexico for three gigs coinciding with Balloon Fiesta, the largest hot air balloon festival in the world: October … [Continue reading]

Confession: I wish I was kinder to myself. Busy busy busy. Go go go. Even in my "off" time, I'm feeling guilty for what needs to be done.  I don't have a 9 to 5 job, and yet I still get an A+ in creating a stress-filled work week. That's why I'm … [Continue reading]

Hometown Bound

I was born in North Carolina (which inspired my song, Carolina Girl). But those who know me well can attest that I am first and foremost a Florida Girl. That's why I'm so excited to head to my hometown of Gainesville, Florida for a lightening round … [Continue reading]
