The New Year so far has been one thing I can tell you and that is Busy. Very busy.
( And Dark. And Grey. The sun has not shown here since before the Holidays and I am sure that I am going to come down with the seasonal illness, can't remember it's name but I think it's called something like " Get Me Out Of Here Before I Sink Into Despair Forever !!!! " )
Ah-hem, back to Busy. Lots of work type things going on and I have been working on songs for the next cd, never to early to think about them you know. Actually to be more accurate I have been THINKING about songs for the next cd while learning more Irish music and Melissa Etheridge songs on the guitar.
( that is I have been working until say FOUR each day which is when it gets DARK here, and all one's energy leaves )
Paul Score and I have our first show with just the two of us on Friday and Saturday this week, 7:30 to 11:30 at Charlie's Pub in Stillwater. We are getting together tonight to work on some new songs, and make sure we remember all the old ones. If you are in the Cities, folks, Stillwater is not that far away, about 45 minutes, and it is a really fun little pub.
( yes, I know it is hard to leave the house this time of year, haven't done it myself in days )
Our own Creature of the Night, Miss Malena has had company all week but I expect will be back here very soon. I have it on good authority she did get to the Haunted Mansion yesterday , and contrary to rumor, did not in fact , buy the place and set up housekeeping.
( If you remember the last online Tour Of The Teves Museum, you will remember there simply is not that much difference between where she is now, and the Haunted Mansion. This had to be pointed out to her several times before she could be persuaded to leave .)
( I myself am all for the Night and all the Lovely Things in it, but NEVER to be day and sunny and bright???? I am starting to think things like " Always Winter and Never Christmas...." )
I am off for a walk now
( no skiing the snow all melted. It is , I believe, raining. What fun )
and then back to work
( what else is there to do? )
and then off to band practice
( if I can stay awake )
Love and magic,
PS The preceding Winter Despair ought to be taken with some humor, I mean it IS after all January in the midwest, we need it!!!!!
