Monday, September 26, 2022 - Full Sails

I was trading texts with my friend Don, and we both agreed that we don’t feel like the wind is in our sails of late. Some of it is the lingering of pandemic worries and not fully feeling engaged like we used to be. Some of it is just the season and a bit of malaise with the state of the world and general unrest. I think sometimes we need to inhale, and sometimes we need to exhale, and this time is kind of an “in between” with maybe a bit of holding a breath to see what comes next. I don’t mind these states of mind, but I always listen to them carefully to see if I’m wanting a bigger change or just a pause. I’m always a peaceful person who feels the oneness with others and with our earth. So here’s to licking a finger and putting it into the wind to feel where that wind is coming from, and then trimming the sails to catch it - no matter how light. 


What have I been up to? 

I had 8 senior facilities last week, and I enjoyed every one. I need to catch up on some of the requests that my folks have made over the last couple months, but it’s all good. 

My Wednesday online show doing fall songs was very enjoyable. There are so many great fall songs! We even did a couple of the more melancholy songs that people know about fall. I love this season! 

My Sunday online show of requests was another fun night of sharing and great songs. This group never ceases to amaze me with their fine song requests and engagement with each other. It’s a family! 


What am I up to this week? 

I have 9 senior facilities this week, and I’m rushing to finish this missive to get to the first one today! 

My Wednesday online show 7-8:30 mountain time will be the music of Kenny Loggins, Loggins and Messina, and Poco. I wanted to do Kenny Loggins and Loggins and Messina since the one flows to of the other, but I knew I didn’t have enough songs there for a full show, so I added Poco since they are a good fit. I also could have added Buffalo Springfield since Jim Messina was involved with them at the end of that band, but I thought Poco represented more of that early ‘70s into the ‘80s vibe. It will be night of music we’ve only hinted at before. Come on out! 

Saturday 6-8 I’m playing for what will be an after-Oktoberfest party at Deerprint Wine in La Veta on the patio. It should be a really fun night of music, and I’m putting a lot of energy into it. I’d love to have you there if you’re in the area. 

Sunday my online show 7-8:30 mountain time will be favorites and requests as always. We have such a good time at these shows, and you’re always welcome wherever you are to tune in and join in. 


That’s it for this week. I’m enjoying this fall although it’s honestly going too fast. Be well, and send some good thoughts and prayers to the folks in Florida as Hurricane Ian bears down on them. 

Best always,
