Dear Lovers of Art & Music,
:: MUSINGS ::
Perhaps every season - is really a portal. Stand still, run, jump rope or swim… the colors will change all around you. There is no stopping this. Nothing you can do but be a part of it. The smells will change.… the Feel. the Sky - the Light, the Leaves… all of it.
We are not separate from change, but woven into it. Here we are, morphing with everything around us - catalyzing alterations while altering as a result of everything that is happening.
This Spring I am experiencing a vivid call to refine, to further align, to evolve. I feel it on a cellular level, in my thought patterns. I can feel it in how I interact with people, where my heart is, and within the belief systems I have constructed.
This is Spring Cleaning time. It’s exciting. And the world… sings.
Lucky lucky Us.
:: NEWS ON THE WESTERN WIND ::
Did I share with you that I am releasing a single? The song is called The Yew Tree. I learned this song in the High Sierra mountains when I was a young woman. We would sing it a cappella in 3 or 4 part harmony. I have always loved it. The original was written by Brain McNeill in 1984 I believe. Apparently it was one of those songs that virtually wrote itself. Last year when I began working with the cello, I became riveted with the idea of recording a completely stripped down version of The Yew Tree. No guitar. Just my voice, and the drone of a cello. April 14th the song is released - and at the end of April I leave for The Yew Tree tour to support the song in the UK.
You can get your pre-release copy through my site here. I hope you enjoy it - and I appreciate your support in bringing the music to the world.
