A few days ago I performed at the KGB Bar in the East Village, New York with Kit Krash.
Today I took an evening stroll through a nature sanctuary. It rained early this morning, the air is moist and fresh. I love deciduous trees and water!
A month ago, I imagined a best case scenario for me would be traveling between New England and New York City as I figure out the next moves of my life. Now I am doing just that! I am so grateful!
I’ve been quietly working on a massive project – and I left my work in Brooklyn, thinking it would be too cold to work on it here in a barn studio.
It is not too cold.
108 pieces await my return.
For now, there is always work to do. I have my guitar with me. And blank books. And pens.
Who or what influences you?
. . . I’m in love with nature. I’m in love with the meadows, of sunflowers. I’m in love with riding through the meadows. Sometimes, I’m surrounded by so much beauty it almost doesn’t seem real.
I’m inspired by my relationship with nature, how I move through it . . .
. . . Being invisible, feeling invisible, but still creating anyway.
My insistence, the need to create, the need to exist, the need to give back to the world for my life.
The idea that all of this, all of our experiences, our lives, nature, is temporary. The idea that not everyone believes or feels that nature is valuable – baffles me. That hurts.
Pain is an influence. And love. Pure love.
Knowing that everything is tremulous and temporary . . .
So, who or what influences you? (feel free to share in the comments below)
