En route to my show at the cafe last week I was feeling ignited, a little anxious, but ready. I was ready to enjoy an intimate small show with my set list in hand. When I opened the door on the beautiful actually "warm" weather balmy winter night I was surprised, the space was packed! it was packed with people. I felt my heart skip a beat, I sat and listened to another artist that was up before me, slightly shaking as I awaited my turn. Well I wasn't sure I was going to get out of there alive, well not without a heart attack jk, I am being dramatic. Once I got up there, set up my equipment and started my first song, I was at home. I felt so happy to let the stress of the day go and to connect with all of the eyes, hearts, and souls in the room. I went from song to song, from story to story, from beat to beat. I felt their connection, I felt my own. I found my way, and sometimes it just takes that first step forward. Afterwards I was filled with joy, revealing in my own dis-belief that it had went so well. Grateful that I did not "freeze" or "stumble". You see this performance was another reminder to me that this is what I am meant to do right now in my life. I am meant to engage with people through music, through story, through connection, I am meant to help raise the positive energy in rooms and in hearts. It felt like a grand adventure that night, and reminded me that life is like an adventure. I hope you all enjoyed the adventure as much as I did. I look forward to the next one @ The Jumping Bean. This one is 2 hours long..whew..but I am sure time will fly as it always does, when I am in the moment and having so much FUN. Love you all. Thank you for connecting with me, and for sharing in this music.
Don't forget to dream! life is meant to be a sweet dream and it is these beautiful messages from our soul that take us on wild carpet ride adventures, places where we are meant to go, a means to face our fear, and a means to come ALIVE. Evolving and experiencing happiness is key.
