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.
