I have the best five blog readers in the world. Seriously. It's so encouraging to me when you comment and write to me, when you tell me the story of how our journeys are intersecting.
Here's a video and song by one such reader that I keep coming back to again and again. I'm sharing it here today, in case you can use its soothing vibe. I remember what it was like before I had this space, this community and togetherness. It was so lonely then.
I'm so thankful for all the ways in which we find one another.
A question I've been asking a lot lately is, what is my work? It's easy and maybe obvious to think that my work is about writing or storytelling. But the center of it all, the work unfolding before me is about things like presence, seeing and being seen, and being true. This is why it's easy to find kindred spirits across mediums. This is why, when Jen Lemen introduced me to The Roses a few years ago, I was captivated.
So when I heard that Rose Polenzani and Anne Heaton were coming to NYC, I had to go. And Jen was so sad not to be here for it. She wasn't the only one--not even close--so I'm posting a few clips from the show here for all of you. Their tour is just starting--check out the dates below and visit them in a city near you.
You can also see Anne and Rose together here and here. If you love these singer/songwriters as much as do, visit their sites, leave kind comments and download their music. They are good companions for the journey, I promise.
