I have the most interesting dreams, and quite often I think they are messages from the great beyond. I know that may sound odd, but let me tell you about them. I often dream about my dad since he passed 12 years ago. He usually just happens to be in the scene off to the side. I'll notice him in my peripheral vision, and he'll smile at me - letting me know he's always there and to keep on keepin' on. I've only dreamed about my mom once since she passed a couple years ago. She just "happened" to be in the scene too - letting me know again that everything was fine and to keep living life to the fullest. You won't believe who was in my dream last night - Dan Fogelberg. I was skiing with him, or rather watching him ski with gusto and joy. He was flying along in the powder, tumbling and laughing - reminding me that life is a joyous thing to be lived and loved. What a glorious way to be reminded! And as we rush into this holiday season I'm grateful to approach it with all the love and joy I can muster. And that's just my dreams of others. I also have flying dreams and other adventures. Do you dream like this?
What have I been up to?
Wednesday at the Zoo for the tree lighting ceremony was great fun! We had a big turnout and it was beautiful.
Friday night at Neon Alley Bistro was quite nice. We had a good crowd, and it was a listening night with lots of requests and back-and-forth. I like that!
Saturday I didn't end up playing at the Parade of Lights. The facility I was to play for had to cancel because the flu had struck many of the folks and staff. Unfortunately that happens as the seasons change each year. Hopefully everyone will have only a short bout with it.
What am I up to this week?
Friday night I'm playing a Christmas party at the VFW in Pueblo West. They seem like fine folks, and I'm looking forward to it.
Saturday night I'm playing my annual show for the Council of State Governments. I enjoy meeting these public servants from all over the West and getting to share some cowboy music with them.
Sunday I'll be online from our living room for my first-Sunday monthly concert. Well, hopefully it will be from our living room. We're having our flooring redone this week, and hopefully we'll have our living room put back together by Sunday. Either way it will be a fine night of Christmas music to kick off the season. Please tune in if you can - concertwindow.com/tommunch.
