Hello to All! It’s been about 8 weeks since I had tendon surgery done on my left hand. I’ve graduated from twice a week at physical therapy to once a week. On October 20th, my Doc gave me permission to begin strumming my guitar!! I told him I thought it was the best therapy anyway & he agreed with me. (This is one reason why I chose a guitar playing doctor to do my surgery.) I have been playing daily for small bits of time, then heating/icing my hand & trying to play a little more each day. I am confident that by November 13th I will be able to play my 3 hour gig at Ocean Pizza in Old Orchard Beach (ME)… & I’m hoping some of y’all can get out to celebrate my first time back on stage since late August… my soul has been sad, but it’s perking up now that I feel like I’m getting some of my life back. Here’s the scoop in this order:

1. ONE GIG IN NOVEMBER! (My first in almost 3 months!)

1. ONE GIG IN NOVEMBER! (My first in almost 3 months!)

NOVEMBER 13TH (FRIDAY, the 13TH… a lucky day for ME!) OCEAN PIZZA / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 7PM / 207-934-2900... Ocean Pizza sounds like a little diner thing doesn't it? There's a take out spot in the front, sure 'nough... but the dining room is really warm, woody & comfy, with a bar & music on Friday nights... & GET THIS: the only music allowed is... ORIGINAL MUSIC! Totally cool. Pam, the owner, is a petite fiery lady straight outta Italy with her Grandma's best recipes tucked up under her sleeve. Seriously, if you haven’t checked out this cozy nook of a spot yet, come celebrate my 1st show in 3 months & find a new favorite place to hang out & enjoy some great food & beverages. Here's their [website].

I can’t believe it’s November already. Halloween behind, clocks kicked back an hour (here) & Thanksgiving looms ever closer. I always try to think about what I am thankful for, especially this time of year. I am grateful for so many things. But I have to say I am feeling most thankful right now for a glorious fall season here in Maine. I am thankful that I live in an area where people appreciate the beauty they see & take time to capture those visual, soulful gifts in photos to share with folks like me who were at another place, perhaps eyes wide & mouth open, taking in another extraordinary moment of visual bliss. I didn’t take the photos I am sharing here today. They were posted by friends on Facebook. Both shots take my breath away & make me feel as if I were there when the shot was taken.

I have been playing my guitar as much as possible without rushing the progress of my healing hand. I feel as if the world around me is giving me a great big hug & letting me know that everything will be all right. These photos make me feel that way. The songs I sing make me feel that way. Others’ songs & photos can bring this comfort & joy to me. I am amazed & thankful for this.

Another thing I am thankful for today is the knowing… the anticipation… the confidence that is bubbling up within… I am going to get to play & sing again really, really soon! I hear echoes of Joni here… “don’t it always seem to go, you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone”… damn. I have missed performing so much. No way to describe the YAY I feel. If I can touch just ONE person with my music on any given night in the near future the way these photos touch me, I will be more blessed than I already feel.

Wishing you all a wonderful November, complete with moments that take your breath away & allow you opportunities to stop & soak in the things that make you feel whole, valuable & thankful. Thank you so much for staying tuned to my ramblings… I hope I get to sing for y’all soon… I’ll be watching for you along the way.
