Monday, September, 18, 2023 - Fall

Is it really Fall already? My cooler morning walks definitely say it’s so. It officially starts this coming Saturday, the 23rd. I always write about this season because it is my favorite time of the year. One thing I don’t like about it is that it’s harder to keep my fingers warm when taking pictures on my morning walks with Beau. But when the leaves start to change and life begins to slow a bit I am rejuvenated. Another thing I don’t like about it is that snow comes to the high country, and I can’t get into the mountains as easily until the next summer. But all those things are worth the beauty and relaxed feeling I get from the world around me as we head into the Fall. I think I feel connected enough to the earth that I sense the shift in the land as it seems to exhale at this time in my area. All is saying that it was an exhilarating period of growth and excitement, but now is time to rest and prepare for the winter. I like that. I’m not happy that this season is often seen as depressing, and that songs about this time tend to be more somber. My show on Wednesday will be Fall songs, and I will endeavor to pick out the songs that are more uplifting and positive. I just love this season and want to bring out the joy of the Fall. Do you feel it?


What have I been up to?

I had 8 senior facilities last week, and they were all so worthwhile. I did wear a mask at 3 facilities that are either taking precautions or have had COVID in their staff. I get my COVID shot today, so hopefully I can dodge it myself as well as keep my folks healthy.

Senior Safari on Wednesday was a beautiful event this year with lots of folks I knew, perfect weather, and a great playful vibe. It’s so nice to get to do a great event outdoors like this. Big thanks to the Pueblo Zoo staff for pulling it all together.

My Wednesday online show doing more Jimmy Buffett songs was so much fun too. I got to do some lesser-known songs of his that were requested and were just gems.

My Sunday online show of favorites and requests had some great songs and folks too as always. I’m just amazed at the great moments we continue to have on these online shows.


What am I up to his week?

I have 14 senior facilities this week, and although that’s a lot, I’m looking forward to every one. I’m also getting my COVID, flu, and RSV vaccinations this morning, so this will be an interesting experiment in endurance. Wish me well!

My Wednesday online show 7-8:45 mountain time will be Fall songs as I wrote above. Every year I have more new songs that are so neat and fun to play. Come on out and listen to Fall!

My Sunday online show 7-8:45 mountain time will be favorites and requests as always. I love doing these shows, and the interaction online is so much more rewarding than I thought would be possible over the internet. Come on out and join in!


That’s it for this week. Next week I’ll only be doing a Wednesday online show because Jen and I are headed over the mountains to attend our niece's wedding next Sunday near Grand Junction. I’ll play some songs for them as well for the ceremony and reception. Enjoy the Fall!

Best always,
