Hello friends, stomach
I hope you had a nourishing and happy Thanksgiving weekend
Thanksgiving occasionally brings out the workaholic in me as I feel pulled to “get things done” when really it’s my opportunity to sit by the fire, price drink tea and talk to friends and family. I’m happy to report that this year, I played family games, laughed a lot and let myself record a new song (below).
Please mark your calendars for two upcoming Chicago events!
On Saturday, February 7th, I will be playing at EvanstonSPACE. This should be a super fun show and I’ll be sharing some new songs!
On Monday, December 22nd, I’ll be opening up Michael McDermott’s Annual Holiday Show at City Winery in Chicago. This show usually sells out fast so if you’re interested, you can grab tickets here. http://www.citywinery.com/chicago/tickets/michael-mcdermott-12-22-14.html
A new song…this song is not super funny. If you are looking to laugh, I’m planning to send you something funny in about 5 days. I’m serious In the meantime, here is a song-in-progress which means I’m still writing it/learning it.
It’s for all the girls around the world (and the people who love them) who live in less than ideal conditions and is dedicated to the kidnapped Nigerian Girls who, according to all reports, are still being held captive.
I think about them a lot and wonder what it’s like for them to wake up in the morning wherever they are.
I was waiting for the song to be “just right,” (to finish editing it, make it perfect) and then I realized I ought to just let it be in the world now because even though I have no political power and even though they may never hear it, why should I wait to send these girls my love?
So here’s my love for them (and for you )
