It has been a few months since I last popped in here and honestly, a lot has changed (for the better). I took most of the summer off from playing out. I worked as a cashier (and barista in training) and have been working hard to launch my creativity coaching business (Rare Gem) to help other creatives who are struggling to navigate this crazy existence.
It turned out to be exactly what I needed. I read one time that Bob Dylan stepped away from his art and holed himself up in a cabin and ended up writing more than ever. I’ve always wanted to do this - especially over the last couple of years. I had a feeling that stepping back and gaining perspective would do the same for me.
Songwriting has always been the way I show up in this world. Whenever I’m not writing as much, I know it’s a sign I need to make more time for myself.
So that’s what I did! And I’m excited to say, I’ve been feeling truly at home in myself again, ready to start breathing life into my next project, and show up re-energized on my shows.
But for today, I plan to curl up with Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, and pumpkin spice everything…
Until next time…. I leave you with my VERY appropriate song, “Haunted”
