Gigs, Lisa Snellings and Melissa Eitheridge
This has been a rather long hot busy working day, so if I seem to lack my usual wit and brilliance, you know why. There are things to say however, so here it is....
First off, Paul and I , with John " Big Sexy " Sjogren are playing this Friday and Saturday at Charlies in Stillater. I mention this as it is not on the appearances Page, being a last minute addition. Sadly, Stilllwater is having " Lumberjack Days" . I don't know what they are exactly , but I think it means it may be hard to park, but we would love to see some friendly faces in the sea of chaos if you are feeling brave. Elizabeth from Dremahaven Books says she is going to try and get thru and bring me a mysterious package that arrived for me from Someone out there........
Lisa Snellings is having a very cool sale. Here it is for one more week only and some of the proceeds are going to the CBLDF , it is never to early to think about Christmas, folks and Lisa's art is so very magic. ( and she is a pretty fun date herself! )
( notice my new linking skills? Hope it works )
I got a chance to see Melissa Etheridge on Tuesday night. It was truly the second best concert I have ever been to . ( NOTHING will ever top ABBA , I was 13 and we got to sit in the fourth row ) Melissa is the most amazing performer I have ever seen, she gives so very much , everything she has I don't doubt. She played for 2 hours and 41 minutes! Never stopped for a moment. ( I have played close to two hours without a break in concert, and let me tell you, it is WORK ) Kitty told me when I mentioned I was going to the concert that someone had said to her, about Melissa, " If you need healing, she will heal you"
Yes, she does. Her music is everything that music should be , and as magic as music is at it's best, but it is the things she says in between songs that made my heart melt, my fears go away , and made me believe that anything is possible, at any moment. Or maybe reminded me of that. And of how very precious life and love really are. It's hard to put into words what a wonderful experience seeing her was. It's funny, I was reading in her blog that some of the critics were saying they liked the music, but she talked to much. Weren't they listening to what she had to say???? I need to write her and tell her, don't stop talking, I can't be the only one you have healed.
Go and see her , if you can, if she is coming your way. You will be glad you did.
I think I will leave you with some pictures of the very, very coolest housewarming present a Boss could ever give his Assistant.
Love, Music and Magic, Lorraine
