Monday, January 14, 2019 - Empathy 

I was at a couple parties interacting with folks yesterday, and I was reading the room and getting to know people as I was talking to them. I was amazed at the variety of experiences people had. And then I was reading a friend’s life story this morning. The places he’d traveled and the things he’d seen were simply amazing - sorrows and joys. We never know what another person has gone through and what they know. We tend to think everyone has the same experience as us, but everyone has had their own troubles and triumphs. Taking care in knowing we’ve all had a life that has shaped us in our own ways on this journey should guide us in our every interaction. I’m fascinated to know what others have gone through in their lives. I feel a oneness with everyone ultimately, but I know they have faced their own set of circumstances to make them who they are today. I will try to keep this in mind as I go through my day. I appreciate you, my friend.  

What have I been up to? 

Cuchara Chapel had to cancel the service last Sunday because the snow was already 17” by Saturday noon with no end in sight. I think they had at least 30” by the end of it. That worked out okay because I wound up with a cold and fever that knocked me out from late Monday to part of Thursday. I also picked up an anniversary party on Sunday afternoon that would have been difficult timing if I would have had to rush back from Cuchara. It’s amazing how everything works together.  

What am I up to this week? 

Friday 7-10 I’m back at Walter’s Brewery Taproom. We had so much fun the last time I played here, and I’m really looking forward to it again! Please come out if you can.  

Sunday I’m back at Cuchara Chapel 10-11 if the weather allows this time. It’ll be great to see the valley with so much snow.  

That’s it for this week. I did book Walter’s February 16 and March 15, so in addition to first-Fridays at Bistoro and first-Sundays on Concert Window online that’ll be a good rotation for a couple months. I have some other special events like the Bell Tower in Florence on March 16 and another Crunch and Munch with Ken Saydak at The Merc in La Veta on April 13.  

Best, 

Tom

Monday, January 7, 2019 - What Causes Illness? 

I went to bed after my online concert last night feeling a little chilled and a little sniffly, and it made me think once again about what causes illness. I read and listen to a lot of different science news and studies, and so I know a bit about the mechanics of illness. But I also know from the studies that there is a component of illness that is in the mind and spirit as well. We can make ourselves sick from stress or a host of other things in our lives that make our immune systems weaker and more susceptible to whatever bug is hanging around. Our world is full of examples of those who made themselves sick and those who made themselves well. Eating well, exercising, and getting good rest are very important, and sometimes supplements seem to help too. But our outlook on life and how we deal with stress is worth bearing in mind as well. So when I feel a little puny my curiosity is always spurred to know what caused it in me this time. Just a little food for thought this morning. I wonder what the next study will add to our knowledge of this.  

What have I been up to? 

New Year’s Eve at La Plaza Inn was a wonderful time. The trip down was a little spooky with slick roads and folks in the ditch on both sides, but once I was there I was greeted by kind people who knew how to make the holidays special. The food was great, the decorations were beautiful, and the music and fun were flowing.  

Friday at Bistoro was grand as well with good food, old and new friends, and a warm feeling with the music that couldn’t be beat. I love these folks and this place! 

Sunday for my online concert I did some old country and western songs from the beginnings of country music. I didn’t know if folks would like this choice of music, but they really did. I like doing different things, and these songs are close to my heart.  

What am I up to this week? 

This week will be relatively quiet with mostly my normal nursing and retirement schedule 2 or 3 gigs a day which I thoroughly enjoy. It’s great to give back to the community.  

Sunday 10-11 I’ll be playing at the Cuchara Chapel service again. I’ve really been enjoying the folks and message at the chapel, and I’d encourage you to come up for a mountain outing and a nice uplifting message to start your week if you can.  

That’s it for this week. Next week I’ll be back at Walter's Brewery in Pueblo if you’re looking ahead. Have a good week! 

Best always,

Monday, December 31, 2018 - End of Year Thanks 

I’m looking back like everyone does as I approach this New Year’s Eve. This year has been fairly good. I got to see a lot of friends and family, and I got to play in some beautiful places for some wonderful folks. Of course, the fires in the forest around here put a damper on several places I would have played, and I’m so sorry to those who lost so much. Life will always keep us guessing and appreciating what he have - including each other. I had a couple health issues which made life a little interesting for a while - nothing serious, just growing older. Our pets kept us active and happy. My writing went well, and I’ll be ready for the studio this fall.  I also love writing these blogs for you all. Through it all this life continues to be an adventure of living and loving that is beyond great. Yes, there are grey moments mixed in, but I’m glad I came, and I’m glad to have you alongside for the ride.  

What have I been up to? 

Christmas was a wonderful time with family and good food and drink. (Thanks, Jim and Karen!) I hope yours was too.  

Saturday was a private 85th birthday party with several model railroaders, so I got to dive into some of my favorite train songs. Happy Birthday, Charlie! 

What am I up this week? 

Tonight (Monday) 6-9 I’ll be playing at La Plaza Inn in Walsenburg for New Year’s Eve dinner. The weather looks like it will be a challenge down south, so I’m in hopes that everyone’s travel will be safe. If you’d like to come please call 719-738-5700 for a reservation. It’s sounds like a wonderful evening.  

Friday 6-9 I’m at Bistoro in Pueblo for first-Friday dinner. I’m looking forward to starting the new year with good food and good friends. Please come out and enjoy the energy of the new year. Call 719-299-4769 for reservations.  

Sunday 7-8ish I’ll be doing my first-Friday online living room concert once again. I’ll be starting the year with favorites that I hope everyone loves. Please tune in to concertwindow.com/tommunch if you can.  

That’s it for this week. I hope you had a good year and are looking forward to ringing in the new with excitement and joy.  

Best always, 

Tom

Monday, December 24, 2018 - Christmas Reflections 

This Christmas season has me reflecting more than normal. I find myself awash in all kinds of memories as I perform at different places. I share stories with the songs, and I find myself in so many déjà vu moments until I don’t know what’s current and what’s a memory. It’s confusing and yet intoxicating all at the same time. It’s a really unique frame of mind. The familiarity with the songs after performing them thousands of times is almost like playing in a dream as I watch my fingers follow the familiar patterns, and I find myself floating down a river of song. It’s really quite amazing to experience. On top of this I feel such a joy in these songs and sharing them with others who also know them so well. I can’t think of another phenomenon in our world that’s quite the same. So as I reflect on this season I extend a “Merry Christmas!” to you wherever you may be. May you find peace and joy in your heart at this most special time.  

What have I been up to? 

I had private parties the week before last on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. I really enjoyed all of these. It’s a gift to spread Christmas cheer.  

Then that Friday was my Christmas concert at the Merc in La Veta. This was a very special evening with friends old and new. It was just a stellar night all around. Thank you to everyone who made it such a success.  

Finally, that Sunday was the Cuchara Chapel service that I learned a couple wonderful Christmas songs for - “Love Came Down at Christmas” and “Stables.” They’re having Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve services that will be sweet too.  

What am I up to this week? 

Saturday I have a private party for some nice folks that should be fun. They’ve picked out a great selection of songs.  

Next Monday 6-9 for New Year’s Eve I’ll be playing for dinner at La Plaza Inn in Walsenburg. This is a beautiful historic inn where they really decorate beautifully for the holidays. The menu looks scrumptious, and this will be a night to remember. I’d love to have you there! Seating is limited, so call right away 719-738-5700 for reservations.  

That’s it for this week. Have a wonderful Christmas! 

Best always, 

Tom

Monday, December 10, 2018 - The Good Stuff 

I’m thinking about choices this morning. When I was playing my Christmas show at Littleton Museum last night I started thinking about what songs I was choosing and what stories I was telling. I also thought of conversations I had during the day. I’m the kind of person who believes in going with the flow. I’ve always thought that people come into your day for a reason, and flowing with the variables of each day is part of the interwoven web of life that we each participate in. While this is true, my choices within these moments are my own, and they are an expression of who I am at my essence and what I value in life. Often I have to stop and remember that I value love and caring in this life, and this makes me choose the good stuff - the stuff that uplifts others and makes the world a better place. It only takes an instant in the choosing, but it can mean a lifetime in the differences it makes as it plays out in the world. So as I choose songs and tell stories onstage and in my day I will always try to pick the good stuff. This is my vow.  

What have I been up to? 

Last week was a whirlwind.  

My private parties Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday were all different with different folks and different opportunities to spread some Christmas cheer.  It was so good to see these folks and play some songs. 

Friday at Bistoro in Pueblo was packed and so much fun.  Joette (one of the owners) was out with a bug, but the food was great as ever, and it was so good to share the space with such good friends - old and new. 

Sunday was the holiday celebration at the Littleton Museum I mentioned above, and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the holiday songs - especially with the little ones who light up with joy and wonder at the season. 

What am I up to this week? 

Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday I have more private parties at facilities and with friends.  I really enjoy these and am grateful to have them. 

Friday I’m playing a big concert at La Veta Mercantile 7-9.  This will be a blast playing holiday favorites for all my friends and fans in the La Veta area.  Tickets are available at La Veta Mercantile $15 in advance or $18 at the door.  Please come if you can.   

Sunday I’m playing for the Cuchara Chapel service again - 10:00.  I have some wonderful songs worked up for this service, and it should be a great celebration of the season.  Please come out if you’d like to see the gorgeous mountains in all their winter splendor with inspiration from the service and the music. 

That’s it for this week.  I just picked up a New Year’s Eve dinner gig at La Plaza Inn in Walsenburg 6-9.  If you’re in the area and would like an earlier evening or place to go for dinner before the party come on out.  It’s a really nice place!  I hope you’re enjoying the Christmas season.  Wish me luck getting my Christmas cards out and presents purchased. 

Best always, 

Tom

Monday, December 3, 2018 - Sound and Space 

I played a concert in the Bell Tower Cultural Center in Florence last Saturday, and it made me think about how sound works in our world. Sound affects everything it touches. On a molecular level it interacts with wood and stone and even our bodies. In an old building like the Bell Tower, which was a Baptist church, the vibrations have altered what began as an acoustic space in wonderful ways. When performing in a space like this it seems that the music I produce excites all these sonic memories and resonances in the building and creates even more sound and emotion. It’s a thrill to play in a space like this where every note is a give-and-take with the space. I play a note with gusto and wait to hear the musical response from the walls and ceiling. It's quite the experience. I know I tend to emphasize the minute details of life, but I find the essence of life in these details.  There is beauty everywhere.  

What have I been up to? 

Saturday’s concert at the Bell Tower in Florence was great fun. I wrote about it in the paragraph above. Such kind and generous folks came out for the evening, and the Christmas spirit was really flowing.  

Sunday my online concert at my brother's house in Taos was a thrill. I had a live audience of friends in the beautiful adobe room, and I think we did the season proud.  

What am I up to this week? 

This week will be the super-busy week for this Christmas season.  I have 5 events. 

Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday I have private Christmas parties for some wonderful folks.  I really enjoy playing at these events, and I expect there will plenty of Christmas cheer to go around.  Maybe I’ll see you at one of them. 

Friday 6-9 I am back at Bistoro for a special evening of holiday friendship and great food.  Joette and Pellumb and the staff really know how to create a festive atmosphere, and I’m looking forward to this evening.  Please come out if you can.  https://www.facebook.com/events/273092440068877/ 

Sunday 5:30-8 I’m in Littleton to play for the Littleton Museum’s Holiday Evening 2018.  If you’re in the Denver area please come out for a fun evening of apple cider, cinnamon, cookies, and hay rides on the beautiful museum grounds.  Bundle up.  I’m outdoors by one of the barns with a big bonfire and loads of holiday fun.  More details on their Facebook event page - https://www.facebook.com/events/279510556012949/ 

That’s it for this week.  Be good - Santa’s coming! 

Best always,

Monday November 26, 2018 - Thanksgiving Sunrise 

I posted an album of pictures on Facebook on Thanksgiving of the unbelievable sunrise I experienced that morning. You may have seen the album or a picture if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter. It really moved me. From the moment I walked out of the house with our dog Beau I could see that it would be special. We walked south on the path, and the sky was full of interesting clouds and an orange and yellow glow was already appearing on the horizon. As we got down to the end of our road on the path the clouds above me were starting to morph from grey to pink. There was a bright star or planet winking through those clouds. Then as we crossed the field to the next road the pink continued to creep across the clouds. Crossing the road and greeting the neighbor and his dogs in their yard, we marveled in the cold at how the scene just kept getting more vibrant and was changing by the minute. I remarked at how I felt drawn right up into the sky and the cosmos. I felt like my heart would burst. Then rounding the corner and heading to the east the orange and red intensified as the pink grew higher and higher into the sky above and to the sides - painting the mountains with a faint rose. As we progressed to the corner heading back south I looked to the west to see streaks of pink in the clouds like a fire lifting from the mountains. At this point I felt so energized and alive. Even Beau watched the light with wonder. As we turned south and then west the pink built and then began to fade fairly quickly to a muted grey as the sun began to wink over the horizon. We turned back north for home, and now the clouds to the east were bright white as the ball of the sun climbed through the yellow glow to make its appearance. It was quite an experience. When I got home I spent some time looking at the pictures I had taken and reliving the beauty. After a little while I picked up a guitar and tried to express what I had seen in music. The result is a new song called “Thanksgiving Sunrise.” I’ll try to play it at my online concert this Sunday. I just wanted to share the experience with you. If you want to see the album of pictures it’s at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10213414971065504&type=1&l=b37e4be1f1 

What have I been up to? 

Last Wednesday’s Tree Lighting at the Pueblo Zoo was really fun. We had a good crowd of families and friends ready to see the ElectriCriiters and check out the gingerbread house contest.  

Thanksgiving was lots of family and food with good conversation and laughter. I hope yours was too.  

Sunday playing for Cuchara Chapel was fun too. I played my new “Thanksgiving Sunrise” song with my slideshow of the pictures, and several good friends came. We even did a gospel-style “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” sing-along with suggestions from the congregation.  

What’s up this week? 

Saturday 7-9 I’m playing a very special Christmas concert at the Bell Tower Cultural Center in Florence, CO. I have played several concerts at the wonderful Bell Tower, but this is the first time I’ve played for Christmas. Beings that it’s in an old church I’ll bet there are some great Christmas vibes there, and I expect it will be an amazing time. Tickets are $8 for members and $10 for non-members.   The Facebook event page is here - https://www.facebook.com/events/309687999591956/?ti=ia 

Sunday 7- 8ish MDT I’m doing my First-Sunday Online Living Room Concert from my brother's living room in Taos with a live audience of friends. My brother and his wife really know how to decorate a house for the holidays, and this will be a beautiful concert full of Christmas cheer. Please tune in if you can. concertwindow.com/tommunch  

That’s it for this week. I’m talking to the Pueblo Zoo about doing another concert/sing-along at the zoo the week before Christmas like we did last year. I’ll get back with details about that, and I’ll probably put it on Concert Window too. I also have several other places I’m playing in December - Littleton, La Veta, Pueblo, and Cuchara. It’s an exciting time. Hopefully there will be even more beautiful days with beautiful sunrises.  

Best always, 

Tom

Monday, November 19, 2018 - Season for Caring 

Well, the holiday season is upon us.  I’m taking stock of my feelings today as I approach the season.  I usually have to pace myself and not get into the spirit too soon.  I’m still a sucker for all things Christmas even after all these years.  It probably suits me well since I love Christmas songs and love getting to sing them for people every day and watch the songs work their magic on hearts all around.  It really is a chance to show caring for others in an even bigger way than we do all year long.  This can be tough financially, but it doesn’t cost anything to let go of some meanness that may creep into your life and replace it with a caring spirit.  It really helps us all when we care for even just one more person out there.  So give it a try and see if it doesn’t help your holiday spirit and the greater world.  We all need each other, and this season is a great excuse for caring for others.  

What have I been up to? 

I haven’t been playing out as much as during the summer.  This gives me a chance to catch up on all that stuff I said I’d do when things slow down.  It also gives me time to spend with family which is always good. 

My monthly online concert was great fun as always.  I did some very different songs, I think, and it felt good to branch out a little from my usual fare. 

I didn’t play at Cuchara Chapel that week on Sunday because we had a pretty big snow storm blow through, and the roads in that direction turned to ice and packed snow in a hurry.  I did get out in it a little to have a rehearsal for a Veterans Day show in Walsenburg on Monday that went really well.  We stuck to patriotic songs this year which was a little heavy but honorable. 

What am I up to this week? 

Wednesday 5:30-6:30 I’m playing for the Tree Lighting Ceremony and Gingerbread House Contest at the Pueblo Zoo.  I did this for the first time last year, and it was a blast!  The zoo folks are such good people, and it’s really gratifying to be involved in such a happy event.  There’ll be hot cocoa, adult beverages, and more.  Come on out if you can.  Tickets are $10 which also gets you 2 tickets to see the ElectriCritters lighting display.  There’s more info on the evening here - https://www.pueblozoo.org/gingerbread. 

Thursday is family and Thanksgiving.  I’m taking the day off.  Hope you can too.  Happy Thanksgiving! 

Sunday I’m playing at Cuchara Chapel service 10-11 in Cuchara.  I’m looking forward to it.  Cuchara is beautiful with the recent snowfall, and nothing will put you in the holiday spirit more than a beautiful morning in the mountains with mountain views and inspiration. 

That’s it for this week.  I have a bunch of holiday gigs coming up, and I’ve created Facebook events for many of them if you’re a Facebook person.  If not, check out my calendar - http://tommunch.com/calendar.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and start to the holiday season.  Spread the caring! 

Best always, 

Tom

Monday, November 5, 2018 - Chapters 

Fall is always a wonderful time of year - the crisper days, the beautiful leaves, and the general slowdown of life is always a welcome change, but it also brings about a change of chapters that is sometimes hard to deal with. For me it slows down my work in radical ways. I’m sure if you read my regular missives you see that I don’t have as many gigs to share, and sometimes I don’t post and mail weekly at these times. Usually I see this as an opportunity to get to those things I put off during the summer, but this change of chapters sometimes puts me in a little bit of a funk too. I really enjoy seeing friends and being on the go, and my budget gets a little tighter. Life is just more fulfilling when we’re fully engaging. So I start the next chapter and adjust my activity and mindset with a little angst and a little love. And I always appease myself by trying to rise above and look at the view from 40,000 feet. That’s when I remember that we’re all in this together and my life is not that different than everyone else. If I keep creating and giving what I have to give then it will all work out. It’s just another chapter. 

What have I been up to? 

Friday at Bistoro was a really cool night of old and new faces. The food was fantastic, and I really enjoyed pulling out some musical gems. I think Bistoro will be a nice musical home.  

Saturday the St. Jude fundraiser at CaT's Pourhouse was very successful and a lot of fun. I got to feed the energy of the room with some cool old songs, and many children should be helped by our efforts.  

What am I up to this week? 

Monday at 7:00 MST I’m doing my monthly online living room concert. I have a few requests, and I’m planning some other fun surprises. Please tune in if you can. More and more I’m seeing this as a wonderful way to play for friends all over the globe. It’s a pretty cool thing to be able to do this. Here’s the address - concertwindow.com/tommunch.  

Sunday 10-11 I’m playing for the Cuchara Chapel again. They had a pretty good snow at Halloween, so I’m sure it’s beautiful up there. I’m looking forward to it. If you feel like seeing the winter wonderland and beautiful mountain views with a little inspiration, come on out.  

That’s it for this week. Things coming up include playing for the Pueblo Zoo treelighting just before Thanksgiving and doing my December online concert live from Taos. Check my calendar for all my other things as well - tommunch.com/calendar.  

Best, 

Tom

Monday, October 29, 2018 - Writing 

As I sit writing this note today I’m struck with what writing does for me and my brain. This is both writing things like this note and writing songs. The writing doesn’t always come easy, but it brings an enlivenment of spirit and an alignment of my thoughts. That's a good and rewarding thing for me. Getting in touch with my core and then organizing my inklings into words and sentences is a fundamental part of our existence here on earth. Expressing it to others in words is how we make sense of our world and how we learn to understand each other. Words are often like gems that we can hold up and spin around in the light - marveling at the way they reflect and reveal beauty and truth. And of course they are just one element of the way we express ourselves. There is sound and music, sight and art, touch and sense, and all the other senses and ways we experience our world. But today I celebrate words and ideas and the way we express them in writing.  

What have I been up to? 

Friday we made a run down to Philmont Scout Ranch to hear a concert by AJ Lee, a fine young bluegrass picker and songwriter, to benefit fire relief for the summer burn areas on Philmont. It was a blast, and we had a jam session afterwards that was equally as rewarding.  

Sunday I got to play for church service at the Cuchara Chapel. I’m a little rusty on reading music from a hymnal, but I gave it my best shot, and it was so good to see some of my friends from Cuchara. They’re an exceptionally kind and generous group of folks. I’m trying to play monthly for them, and I’d love it if you’re in the area if you could join in too. Stay tuned for future dates.  

What am I up to this week? 

Friday 6-9 I’m back at Bistoro for our First-Friday monthly dinner and music. I love these folks so much, and I respect their passion and their excellent food and drink. These nights are always very special and not to be missed. Please come out for a fun evening of great folks and food and a little bit of music and sharing life.  

Saturday 1-5 I’m playing for a St. Jude fundraiser at Cat's Pourhouse in Pueblo West. This promises to be a wonderful afternoon of music and fun for a good cause helping children’s cancer research and care. There’ll be a silent auction, raffles and prizes, and lots of my music and support. Please come on out even if you don’t have much to give to support this great cause and enjoy an afternoon together.  

Then next Monday 7-8ish I’ll be doing my First-Sunday concert on Monday again for the month. I’m letting you know a week early so you’re not surprised when I talk about it next Monday. I haven’t planned a theme for it, but I’ll come up with something special.  

That’s it for this week. I hope you have something fun planned for Halloween. Hopefully the weather will be good for trick-or-treaters in your area. Think I’ll try to write some more today. :-) 

Best always,
