Creative Superabundance!

Greetings People!

I am still on a bit of a high between the launch of Harlot’s grace at Central Authors on Wednesday and an Allman Betts Band concert yesterday.

In my world, this would be referred to as a perfect week!

Between the two, my creative juices have been flowing. On very little sleep and a slight dancing hangover, I managed to write over 1,000 words on Harlot’s Fall (I am at the exciting part!), edit a few photos (posted on my Instagram account) and spend a little quality time with Jessie the dog (and for those who are not in the know, the dog runs the house).

In this quiet moment I am thinking about how music plays such an important part in my creative process. There is something about the energy absorbed at a live show that sparks plot points and scenes within whatever story I am trying to create. Since I started taking photos, my imagination has been in overdrive.

I thank all those who play, who create, and who support. And am going back to work because we never know when the buzz will end.

Peace All.

Ahhh Summertime…

Summer Greetings All!

I had a crazy start to this sunshine daydream celebration. One of my favorite bands, Dumpstaphunk, played a free outdoor show recently. 90-degree temp with a bit of humidity didn’t stop the band from playing a scorching two-hour set and I danced the whole time. (And I thank them for sharing their talents. If you get a chance and like to dance, they are New Orleans gift to the rest of us).

Summer lesson one- sometimes water just doesn’t do it and real dehydration is awful (head spins, nausea, dizziness)! I share this as a warning to other sunshine dancers… STAY HYDRATED!

I was down for the count for a week!

Yet I don’t know a better feeling than dancing in the sunshine to live music. Actually, any live music is a gift 😊

What are your summer adventures?
