I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.
Hello, Old Friend,
It's good to see you again. I'm coming off a wonderfully surprising weekend. I just deleted my retelling of the whole thing, but suffice it to say, if you look for the good, you're likely to find it, and, though I fell short of looking for it this weekend, so many of you (and the music) made sure I found it; thanks.
I find myself talking about seasons in this blurb, and we're about to enter my favorite. Though I 'd rather play music outdoors, I love all that fall brings: the colors, the cool, the hoodies and sweaters, football, and a time when the cold seems to bring people closer, and the thanks giving seems to soften the hard things.
And a bit of news to look for in the music world: Some of you may know a Christmas song I wrote with two friends called, "I won't be home for Christmas." A few months ago, I was contacted by the United States Air Force Band. They were about to go into recording and production of a holiday video that will be aired on PBS this holiday season, and of one of the five songs they chose was ours. Obviously, we are humbled, and if you want the rest of the story, come out to a show and I'll be happy to tell you. But look for it right after Thanksgiving and I'll share a link when I can
Be safe, be well, and be a blessing.
