First: look at my band. These guys are amazing. You may not know them- (unless you are a Toad the Wet Sprocket fan- then you will recognize bassist and background vocalist Dean Dinning) but trust me, they rock and I HOPE if you are local, or even semi-local, you will be making it to my "Make Your Magic" CD Release concert at Soho in Santa Barbara. Thursday July 10. Kids can come! Food is amazing! Make your reservations HERE and I hope to see you there.
So. Last week was hot. A massive heatwave. We were a little grouchy and laid around a lot. We let the doggo in the pool.
Still...overall it went a little smoother. Little business opportunities knocked. I got some beautiful emails and notes from people letting me know how much they love and appreciate the new album. . Maybe you can relate- when you work hard on something and you put your heart out there, it makes all the difference when people take the time to let you know: I see/hear/feel what you do.
Last week I spent time recognizing that the little steps are just big steps broken up into pieces. I've been doing what I do for so long, I know little steps are enough.
It doesn't make sense to look around at other people's lives and start making value judgements on our own. Just create the world we want to create for ourselves to the best of our ability. And then put it out there and wait for the little undeniable stars to start coming out. Maybe it seems tiny, just the one, just the two, until one day you look up and your whole sky is full of light.
Anyway- those are my thoughts this Monday morning.
Have a wonderful week.
