Yikes, it is the end of the year. It went slower than usual and although many people thought it sucked, I am one of those who has been actually taking the time to relax and recharge. Since usually I am so busy especially during the holidays, it is nice to have time to be obsessed with decorating sugar cookies and watching all of the old favorite Christmas movies and TV cartoons. I can't even remember the last time I was able to just enjoy decorating the whole house for Christmas, early enough to be able to get out every single item that is for that holiday, and then have the time to sit and enjoy the lights of the Christmas tree while looking at all of the ornaments gifted by so many friends and family, or that were purchased while on tour with one bank or another.
So, yes, I needed this down time. I DO miss seeing people regularly, playing music everywhere, driving all over creation to be able to play for people and get in my social stuff so I am not Jonesing, like I am now. I MISS PEOPLE. Playing out here and there I have been able to see some friends, and also I was able to spend time, a lot of time just hanging out, with my Mom this year. All of these pluses. All of these blessings.
Today I am reflecting on all of the positive things from this last year, and there are a lot, and trying to not beat myself up for not writing all of those songs I had ideas for, finishing painting the house, working on my genealogy books, scanning photos, going through old slides, and all of the projects that have been on my list forever, it seems, and focus on how good I actually feel, what I want to accomplish for real, and what is important and what is not!
I want to wish you a very good new year, prosperous and cheerful, not hateful and argumentative, which I have seen so many people heading in that direction, including close friends and family, and the ability and opportunity to achieve the goals you feel are the most important things in your life!
Hey! Thanks for visiting! And thank you for listening to my music and checking in on what I have been up to!!! You can find my "blog" here under "Ponderings" (I stole my deceased friend Kelly Blair's favorite word!) and hopefully I will update more than once a month, and I also have an email list, which you can join here on the site, just send me a message! PLUS facebook and instagram posts kind of regularly. In 2021 I am hoping to digitize some of the old tapes I have of projects I worked on, bands I was in, and recordings I did with friends or on my own. There is a big box of tapes, and I now have a cassette tape digitize gadget so should be able to get some done soon, when I am tired of relaxing. Hehe. (Read my blog) I also have some ideas for some new recordings and projects but if I tell you then I will be jinxing them and may never get to them. Which happens....
Don't forget that you can purchase all of my music all over the place. Digital downloads, single songs and full albums. Some of the places to purchase are here:
Available are ALL five solo CDs available for full album digital download OR single song downloads, PLUS BOTH Che Zuro and Tisa Adamson CDs, "Soak" and "Snack!" And NOW you can download The Orchids LP that has been out of print for decades, as well as the band I joined in England, The Photos, with an album's worth of material, all for free! (There is no album cover for The Photos record, as we never shot one that I can remember. And if we did, I have no copies of great band pics. Just the one of the 4 of us from a fancy dress party in Evesham, UK.)
