You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t written in several weeks. That’s mostly because I haven’t had any public gigs to tell you about - I always book less gigs at this time of year so I can catch up a bit and plan for the new year. (I also don’t like to drive on snowy and icy roads.) But it makes for some interesting changes in life. For one I have time to catch up on reading and projects I’ve been putting off. It also gives me time for taxes and learning and writing new songs. I’m not very good at slowing down though, and it can also bring on a little boredom (which can also lead to more creativity!) I often wonder when I’ll slow down doing music, but I don’t think it’ll be anytime soon. I still love playing too much. I talked about doing some more online concerts, and I do want to do a few more this late winter and early spring in addition to my first-Sunday concerts. I want to do some different themes for these like different writer’s songs or diverse genres. I’ll let you know about those soon. Each season brings its own changes that take some adjustment. I don’t think I’ll ever be the person who has it all organized and nailed down. I like that just fine!
What have I been to to?
It’s been a month since I last wrote, but a month ago I had a wonderful morning playing for Cuchara Chapel. I even wrote a song for the burning bowl ceremony - a traditional end-of-year chance to leave old things behind and start anew.
What am I up to this week?
Monday I’m in the studio finishing up a single and getting the final tracks on my old country album. I love doing this work!
Friday 6-9 I’m back at Bistoro in Pueblo for a wonderful night of good friends, food, and music. This is such a special place with such a special vibe. Make a reservation and come out if you can. 719-696-9672
Sunday 10:30-11:30 I’m playing for Cuchara Chapel service. I’ve been loving playing for the folks for this service. Come on up if you’d like a little inspiration to start your week in a beautiful setting.
Sunday 7-8:15 MST is my First-Sunday Online Living Room Concert on Facebook Live. I’m doing it on the second Sunday so I don’t go up against the Super Bowl this year. I haven’t picked a theme for this yet, but I already have a couple requests. I’ll be doing some favorites of my friend Blasa who recently passed as well. I so enjoy this chance to play for friends all over the country. Please tune in if you can - facebook.com/tom.munch.
That’s it for this week. I hope your winter is going well and you are healthy and happy.
