Man, it's been the fastest and slowest two years.......here we are. As most of you know, I've been battling long covid for almost exactly a year, and still am. But, I see light at the end of the tunnel..I just hope it isn't some far off train.
The world is a crazy place. I reckon it always has been. We can't get out of our own way most of the time, individually and as a whole. Pandemics, lack of understanding and empathy, not seeing the wonders and blessings that are sitting right in front of us. I think it's just the condition of being human...we are always looking past where we are but with no real vision of the future.
During the pandemic, I sat down and recorded a whole bunch of songs, some of them brand new and some of them at least 30 years old (yea it feels weird saying that) and released them on The Quiet Garden in April of 2021. Of course, there was no tour, and honestly, I had to cancel almost every gig because I was simply too sick to actually play shows. At times, I still am. But I'm getting stronger and can't wait to get back to what I live to do- play music. Two whole years. Wow that seems unreal.
So now, I'm working on another album- St. James- that I hope to have out by the end of summer, and I'm planning to start hitting the road ASAP, so look out for me. I miss the road. I miss my friends I see on the road. I miss my friends. I miss the friends and family I lost in the last two years to this disease. And, I miss music. Playing it. Sharing it. Singing it.
I miss the music.
