Monday, October 4, 2021 - Passing It On

Two of my siblings and I spent the weekend closing our rustic mountain cabins, and this time we had some of the nieces and nephews with us to learn all the ins and outs of draining plumbing, shuttering, and buttoning down things for the winter. It was a teaching and sharing process that was really refreshing, and it was great to spend time with nieces and nephews getting to know them better. We also looked at pictures of the building of the simple cabins two generations ago, and tried to pass along some of the stories and lore of the family. It’s something I don’t think of very often since Jen and I don’t have kids, but spreading insights and continuity as we go along with others is such a valuable and worthwhile thing to do. Our relative ages as we go through this life have so much to do with our thoughts and our approach to life. It’s something I forget as I go through my day. It’s just one of the curious facets of our existence here. I love it!

What have I been up to? 

Last week was a good one. I had six senior facilities. They were very fulfilling. 

My Thursday online show doing songs about food was just crazy fun. There are so many interesting songs about food, and it was really enjoyable having a night of frivolous music and friendship. 

My Sunday online show of favorites and requests was also a great time. Our group really embraces each other and the music, and we had requests from all over the spectrum.

What am I up to this week? 

This is a super busy week. I guess I’m not a very good planner. That’s okay. I enjoy the wild ride still. 

Tuesday evening I have a private party near La Veta for some very nice folks. It has been such a great time playing for all the folks I have met in the Cuchara Valley. I have many cherished friendships. 

Wednesday 6-9 I’ll be playing at the Gold Dust Saloon in Pueblo. Hopefully it will be warm enough to be on the patio. It will be fun evening regardless of where we set up. Come on out! 

Thursday 7-8:30 mountain time my online show will be doing the music of Jim Croce and Cat Stevens. I have wanted to feature the music of both of these musicians for some time, and I think their music will make a nice combination. Please tune in to our welcoming group and listen in. 

Saturday 11:30-1:30 I’ll be in the Denver area at the Littleton Museum for their Harvest Days event. They have me playing in the pumpkin patch behind the museum by the lake. It should be beautiful, and as an added bonus I’ll have the incomparable Gordon Burt sitting in on fiddle and backup vocals. Gordon played with Chuck Pyle for most of his Colorado career, and I can’t say enough about Gordon’s beautiful and intuitive fiddle playing. He finds just the right complement to any song he plays on. It will be a treat! Please come out if you’re in the Denver area. It’s a free day at the museum. 

Sunday 7-8:30 mountain time I’ll be doing my weekly favorites and requests show. We have such a good time sharing songs and friendship. Come on out if you can on Facebook or my website.

That’s it for this week. I had such a good time with family over the weekend, and I hope you get to enjoy your family too as we pass it on. 

Best, 

Tom
