Well, here we are. Back at it; writing, teaching a lot, and playing more shows at last. I'm not alone. There are quite a few of us in the world of the performing songwriter who have had to take a little time away from the business in order to take care of family. There's no better reason, of course. What a privilege it is, to look after the people we love. What a massive, overwhelming, beautiful, transformational struggle it can be. And what a challenge it is to get back to writing and playing. Particularly writing, in my case.
Fortunately, a good friend of mine once told me not to be afraid of the times when I seemed to have nothing much to say, in favor of thinking of that time as "mulching." What a relief. And how wonderful it is to see things finally start to grow again.
So, there are new songs. There are a few projects in the works. Stay tuned, and I'll keep you all up to date on concerts and future recordings as they emerge.
Nice to be back.
