2019 by the season!

Winter, I love winter in the Ozarks! Prompt Me was my main focus and it was better than I ever could’ve imagined! So thrilled with the participation and the songs that were born from thoughtful prompts and deep places. Every song was a gift and I am grateful to you all for your support and encouragement!

Spring! Just trying to keep up with the trees and edible weeds and eat as much as I can as I try, unsuccessfully, to tame it. Enjoying time at home with my doggy and kitty. Wrapping up the first school year at Ann Brown Memorial School. (That’s another blog….)

Summer will find me up north in Wisconsin and Michigan doing what I love most: camps and festivals!

Fall and into winter, I will be recording the songs written during Prompt Me! I haven’t been this excited about recording in a while. Plus I have many songs from the 2015/16 Soulwriters Groups that I equally love, so I am eager to make progress.

More as it happens! As always, thanks for reading, sharing your love and energy, and following your dreams!

Happy 2019 and bring on 2020!

2019 Happy New Year!

May Krampus not take your children away in a basket! Here’s cheers to abundance and equality for all! Hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday season. One of my highlights was getting to dress up as Krampus at the Cattywampus Art and Craft Fair! I didn’t realize I had such a fondness for creatures of the green variety – Krampus, Yoda, Kermit, Puff, and the Grinch! I also had great fun drumming and participating in the UUFF Solstice Ritual and the next night went to a lovely house concert to see two of my friends perform and got to play ping pong with some serious pongers! I stayed a week in St. Louis with my family. I’m so glad we had that time together and I’m glad to be back home! A lovely New Year’s Eve dinner with friends and New Year’s Day celebrating at home with a fire in the wood stove, my doggy, Cubby and my kitty, Hobbit, while drinking champagne and moving into and organizing my new art room!

Prompt Me is going well! There are still openings if you’d like to have a song written with the prompt of your choice. Check it out here on my website! Here’s some feedback from folks who are involved:

“I love it. It’s perfect”

“Wonderful!  You really dig deep for this one.  I marveled at how gracefully you handled all those technical words and concepts.  The sing along element is perfect and automatic.  You can’t help but echo the word.”

“Lovvvvvve it.”

“This is awesome…I love how you come around after educating bout the 

WHYS…you give the HOW TO’S!  Great job…oughta enter it in [song contests]”

“This definitely stays in my playlist.”

“Omg! Perfect!  I love the humorous tone that you used to address a very true topic. The tempo and whistling gave a light hearted old fashioned tone. You did a great job with a tough prompt.

And I actually think this song will make my journey this week a little easier. I’m gonna be whistling…”

What’s your prompt? For only $5 a month for a limited time, I will write you a song!
