I have been tip-toeing thru the tulips. Took a little nap and overslept.
I hope your relaxing time has been most satisfying!
I am excited to share that I have a presence on Patreon. If you like the work that I am doing now and would like to support me on my music journey, I would love to have you along for this creative ride. Please consider becoming a supporter of my Patreon. (Note: there are prizes!)

One of the projects that is close to my heart is Bushwick Book Club Seattle. I love their mission: "The Bushwick Book Club Seattle delivers literature, music, and songwriting to the Seattle community while building the next generation of musicians and readers."
I can definitely support that. My association with them has been so good for disciplining and inspiring my songwriting. What do they offer? A good book to read and a deadline to get the related song finished! Many of the songs on my EP were written as a result of Bushwick shows.
Reading a book and having to write about it makes me read more carefully. It is also a lot of fun to hear others share their musical interpretation of the book. The creative camaraderie is really inspiring. I recently participated in the reading of William Least Heat-Moon's Blue Highways: A Journey into America at Town Hall Seattle. Keep an eye on Bushwick's Youtube page for a replay of the event.
