It’s been a creative reward kind of day.
Ultimate creativity – Life!!! It is Mom’s birthday! She is 79 today! Happy birthday Mom!!
I got to talk to her on the phone – and it sounded like she had a bunch of visitors hanging out with her on her porch. She also got lots of presents. Yay!
Paul and I sent her some songs – The Morning of My Life by the Bee Gees, Chances by Paul, and What’s Done is Done by Jack White.
It’s been a while since Paul and I played together – we are so much more relaxed on these videos than we were months ago! It was hard to relax while hearing constant news about the pandemic, and then wondering how in heck we were going to pay bills – but – we just kept on going. We are always going to be figuring out ways to thrive – might as well enjoy the way.
This has been a rough summer, Paul was missing his dog Duke fiercely today, but making music helped him feel better today.
After six months of hanging in a gallery that was closed for six months – they are free to fly! And Icarus flew today!
It is now hanging in a lovely historic home in downtown Flagstaff. A beautiful spot and a deserving owner.
After the owner and I hung the painting, we talked about writing and communication and finding the words. Creative process. Building skill. And music – adapting to the world right now, and how thrilling it is to play.
What can I say about this day? Music, art, a stroll outdoors?Yes!
It’s easy to feel grateful and hopeful today. I’ll take it.
