Thankful for this View of Moosehead Lake

Hello to all! I am flabbergasted… (who made UP that word?) REALLY? It’s the last month in the year 2014? Damn. Thanksgiving behind… the picture above was taken the day after Thanksgiving up on Moosehead Lake where I cooked a 19 poundah after brining it for 24 hours… so yummy. This view, though, was just as yummy. I was feeling very thankful for friends, family & good health… so many people I care for have had health issues recently. Prayers & good vibes go out to all continually.

I tried hard to get my JFK Television Tribute up on YouTube before the 51st Anniversary of his assassination. I got close, with a lot of help from WCSH TV & my nephew, Clark, who shot the original video of the song I wrote (“November 1963”)… I had to wait for a year to put this video up because WCSH owned the rights to it. With their permission & help, it is now part of my YouTube collection. I am proud of it & still moved to tears by it. If you have yet to view it, please check it out… I’d love to hear your thoughts. Click the YouTube link above.

Have you checked out the new improved Anni Sound Store yet? (Click the store link above.) We’ve lowered the price of CD’s by $3, added mp3 downloads of entire albums or single songs… AND you can finally find me (again) on iTunes! Christmas is around the corner… remember, CD’s make great gifts.

Here’s the December News, in this order:

FFRIDAY / DECEMBER 5th / JJ’S / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 6:30PM / 207-934--0222... a perfect choice of venue to begin your month long holiday cheer… and wicked close to my home.

Get there early as this place fills up big time. One price for a soup to nuts spread from Classic Italian Wedding Soup to melt in your mouth desserts. All kinds of Italian treats in between. And GET THIS: the only music allowed here is (drum roll please...) ORIGINAL MUSIC! I am a shoe in for this spot. Here's their [website].

FRIDAY / DECEMBER 26th / THE MAINE TABLE / S PORTLAND ME / 6PM / 207-699-4495… Playing here the day after Christmas will be a blast! FYI, this used to be the Merry Manor / Governor’s… but now, The Maine Table features Maine sourced foods & beverages… and this Maine gal plays 6 to 9. The food is yummy, the patrons are spunky, the wait staff & bartenders are funky & my tunes sound great in here! I encourage reservations… the place gets packed on Fridays… & please tell them you’re coming to hear yours truly. Here’s their [website].

A Happy Remnant of Warmer Days

When I was up on Moosehead this Thanksgiving, I took long walks, soaking in the quiet. the cold & taking in the visual cues that winter & the ice over of the lake are close at hand. The picture above made me smile… it wasn’t all that long ago that Eric & I had ourselves a “sunset to stars cookout” by the water’s edge… it’ll be months now before THAT happens again! Meanwhile, the summer toys are stored & the winter clothes are at the ready, We’ll be ice fishing on New Year’s Day no doubt.

I imagine I’m not the only one who thinks that, as we age, simple moments in time like the one remembered above become more precious. In recent months, friends close to me have lost Moms & Dads… it reminds me that I, too, have had to learn to be OK during the holidays without my parents here in this world. My hopes are that as December reveals its Christmas blessings to each of us, we all have time to enjoy the simple moments, that we take the time to be really present with the ones we love & we let them know we love them. Time then becomes the best gift of Christmas. As I write, I feel that’s all I want or need this holiday season.

Wishing all of you joyous holidays! As always, thanks so much for staying tuned to my wanderings, be they musical, cerebral, logistical or otherwise. I hope to see you soon… if not now, in the New Year… which is not so far away…
