As I write this, the air here in Oregon has recently chilled. The fire is going this morning and the kitty is curled before it. I see the leaves starting to turn. On the record player we have on "The Best of Bread" (yes I said record player) Aryeh recently set it up in the living room with nice speakers and got out all our vinyl, some saved from life and many from thrift stores. Having been away from that for so long in the digital world I am really appreciating the sound and the music.
Now the record has changed to John Denver. This old music brings back so many memories of childhood and family and teenage angst and everything in between. I played many of John Denver songs as a young girl learning guitar. If you have access to a record player or can get one I highly recommend it. They are available and inexpensive now, and you can find great classic albums at thrift stores for almost nothing. Hearing the needle on the vinyl warms up your home like a fireplace. It's comfort food for the soul.
I'm wondering if now I'm starting the Fall season of my life. This weekend I will turn 56. Last night Aryeh was playing some of my earliest recordings span across the decades of my musical life, wondering if we want to revive any of those compositions for the new album we are working on. It all affected me so deeply thinking about the various people that have come and gone, all the great musicians I have worked with, the record label and behind the scenes friends and helpers. All the tries I tried. It was all the roller coaster of a musician's life. I am always wondering where all the years have gone. Hearing these recordings and such a large body of music helps me remember where those years went. I hope you will consider revisiting some of your favorite music from your life and think about the ones you love and the adventures you had. It can indeed be healing music for yourself or to share with a loved one.
Scrolling down you will see all our concerts and events for the rest of this year, as well as some videos other fun stuff. (I always save the best for last)
Thank you again for being connected with me and I wish you and your loved ones much warmth this season, and of course, music.
