Quiet month

It's been sort of a quiet month.  I left Arizona and drove as fast as my car and trailer would allow to get to Austin to pick up Michelle from the airport on Monday...  Yes, that's right.  Phoenix, AZ at 7PM Sunday night, Austin, TX 7PM Monday.  I was beyond exhausted, but Michelle, EJ, Ceridwyn and I went for Mexican food and margaritas.  Tuesday Michelle, EJ and I played a wine tasting evening in Round Top, TX.  That was fun and good to be with my bestest friends and favorite musicians. 

For the next two weeks, I organized for people in Austin.  It was great.  I scanned, I shredded, I even crawled into an oven-like attic and pulled down stuff that clearly did not need to be saved.  Then I stopped for a weekend of organizing in Houston and then made my way to the beautiful springtime Asheville, NC.

Asheville is such a glorious place to rest between works.  The mountains and river and greenness really help me recharge my energy.  Plus I get to play tunes every evening and experiment on new accompaniment patterns...  I love it!

Next is a trip to Indiana for a SHAWM workshop.  I'm really excited!
