generosity & blessings
Ya'll! My friend Emily brought me to tears the other day with THIS post last week about a day that was supposed to be all about her but I somehow got talked into playing one of my songs in front of a camera. Emily's post came out of nowhere and also at the exact right time. I had never though of singing my songs as generous. And I'm still not sure I feel generous when I am doing it. But I definitely feel that way when I listen to others so maybe it is. So Emily, thank you for writing such a beautiful post and for helping me to see a whole new side to my art AND for sharing my music with your readers.
Then, I read the comments. and I cried even more. So many compliments and...well, I turned into a blubbering mess. Again, it all came at the exact right time. It gave me validation that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing the WAY I am supposed to be doing it. So, to all of you - Thank you so very very much! I hope to have a record to share with you in the very near future and I my hope and prayer is that you will feel my emotions and heartbreak and hope in the songs that I have labored over for years and years. Thank you for allowing me and my music to connect with you, it means the world to me.
I tried to take a picture of me with a kissy face to show how blessed I was feeling for this post. But every time I did the right side of the picture (left side of my face) look so strange and scrunchy I just couldn't find one I liked. Hence, this...
