This is a very exciting time for me. Two new albums in the works, lots of gigs, taking off for out west soon, AND, a children's story of mine has now been brilliantly illustrated by a dear friend in Belgium, to be presented at a children's festival in Toronto in the fall. The state of the world keeps overwhelmingly depressing me, but 'go forth and express yourself,' I still believe. At least enter the dialogue. Oh.. and be kind to others. Sat in a dingy bar yesterday where someone had scrawled on the wall, "Trust the Universe." Well.. what else can you do?
