Thank you for stopping by. I’ve spent hours trying to find something truly worth saying in this, my first ever blog. No earth-shaking truths have fallen into my lap, but I’ve had some great walks down our dirt road and spoken to the birds and the neighbor’s cows. Every second that passes we humans express our ups and downs on facebook, twitter, and blogs. What a mighty megaphone. Decades ago, getting a quarterly newspaper in the mail (the Zassafras Music News) was a group undertaking. ZMN cheered fellow singer/songwriters and held a splash of philosophical doodah and many hugs.
So picking up right where I left off…my life is going amazingly well. Arthur and I have both of our moms (88 and 90) living with us in our NW Arkansas home. I’ve been off the road for about a decade, just enough time to miss my music family and develop a passion for fiber arts-spinning yarns, weaving, knitting, and dying wool. The energies I used to put into writing songs has oozed out of me as short stories and essays. “Flights of Fancy” will be published before the new year (Mockingbird Lane Press).
The fabulous author/teacher/knitter Beth Brown-Reinsel will fly in tomorrow from VT for a two week residency at the Writers’ Colony in Dairy Hollow in Eureka Springs. I’m still on the board of WCDH and stand in awe of the colony’s reach and significance. Founder Crescent Dragonwagon is teaching “Fearless Writing” there next week. Full circle and sweet this life.
And come to think of it, I could tell you about our travels…and…and
Very best to you and yours, Crow
