I’m sorry this blog is a bit late. I’ve been busy getting ready to go away as those of you who follow me on social media will know. I’ve been getting ready for a tour and then for several other shows around Regina. It’s been so interesting spending time working on my set list. I am trying to find ways to engage with the audience, to let them know that I care about their experience as I also share songs that will open hearts.
I’ve also had a great experience this past week re-writing a song that I had written about 20 years ago. It’s about a patient named Jenny who died when she was very young. Her cancer was found shortly after she had her first baby. I think the reason why she stuck with me so much is because I always had the sense she saw me not only as her caregiver but also as a human being. I’d been away on a trip and she asked me about how it had been, even as she struggled with so many difficult symptoms. I think the song has finally become it’s best possible self.
I’m so grateful that I’m able to share my passion. It totally fills my heart to be doing so. I hope that I am able to offer those who listen to my music the gift of love and the knowledge that vulnerability can lead to transformation. This trip-tour will be full of expected and unexpected events, some pleasant and unpleasant. I will try to be open to all of the experiences!
Yours in creativity and music,
