I am traveling and playing through Ohio, Michigan, and New York this fine, early June. The weather has been perfect! Sunny days and cool evenings.
Spent a few days with Loxsanna Moon, who hosted an absolutely amazing back yard concert in Clyde, Ohio. I lived in high style in her Goddess Retreat - a lovely camper under silver maples that whispered in the breeze. Then it was off to my friend Diane's for a couple of days in Michigan. Her home was is so peaceful and inviting ... I sat on her back patio and wrote a new song!
And then we eased on down the road to Michigan Pagan Fest for three incredible days of deep workshops and lots of great music. Dixon's Violin is just WOW! I can't even begin to describe what he does - but his music and expression moved my soul. Aria Flame and their lead singer Aziza seriously rocked the house. She's got some pipes! And I felt such a connection to each and every soul who came to my Saturday night concert. Dad showed up in the middle of "The Undertaker's Daughter" and I got so choked up, I thought I wasn't going to be able to finish the song ... but we all hung in there and cried together, and that just made it better. Happy Father's Day, Daddy.
Wednesday, I'm back on the road - Pinckney, Michigan; Sandusky, Ohio; Corfu, New York, then New Jersey, South Carolina, and finally home at the end of June. Wowsa! I am having the time of my life. So grateful for all the folks who make this joyful me possible - from the folks who host house concerts, to the shop owners who let me play in their stores, to the festival organizers who are inviting me to the best festivals ever, to all the folks who feed me and give me a corner to sleep in - THANK YOU!
