Monday, August 26, 2019 - Friendship

I’m thinking about friendship and the interactions that happen over time in our relationships. I lost a good friend this last week who has been ill for several years. I’m saddened, but I’m also peaceful knowing that she’s still here in spirit although I can’t give her a big hug anymore. I’ve been going over our correspondence for the past 5+ years, and I’m taken with the kindnesses and humor that pass between people in a friendship. Little bits of wisdom and respect are offered and exchanged. There is a real comfort to having an ease of acceptance and a knowing between friends. It’s one of the wonderful things we have in this life and beyond. Just a look says it all.

What have I been up to? 

Last Monday at the Royal Gorge Bridge with Dennis Mills on bass was great fun. Some great folks stopped by the stage for some music.  

My parties on Tuesday and Sunday were a blast as well - one in Cuchara and one in Pueblo. Playing for friends in intimate settings is very rewarding.

What am I up to this week? 

Monday 12:30-4:30 I’m at the Royal Gorge Bridge with Dennis Mills one more time. The weather is supposed to be cooler, and I think it’ll be a great time.  

Friday 12:30-4:30 I’m at the Royal Gorge Bridge with Daniel Market which should be fun. We did a concert at the Merc in La Veta a few weeks ago that was wonderful, and I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with him. Come out to the Gorge if you’d like a fun day in the great outdoors. We’ll be there on Labor Day too.  

Sunday 7:00-8:15 is my First-Sunday Online Living Room Concert. This is my last one on Concert Window as they are shutting down on the 15th of September. I enjoy these so much, and I’m still deciding whether to do the next concerts on StageIt.com or Facebook Live. What’s your preference?

That’s it for this week. I appreciate you and your friendship.  

Best always, 

Tom
