White. A blank page or canvas…So Many possibilities
Sunday in the Park with George
New Year’s Day, the first day of school, opening the first page of a new journal are things that have always excited me. They bring with them the sense that though you never know what is going to happen, you’re sure it’s going to be thrilling, maybe even life altering. Welcome to my latest blank page.
Being a singer and musician is a defining characteristic for me, but it’s not the only one. I love books, and words, and food and fashion. I’m a wife, a mother, and an animal lover. I’m old fashioned about manners, but I’ve never felt that I was born in the wrong place or time. I relish living in an era where I can define who and what I am. I see no contradiction between being a girly girl who enjoys wearing high heels and makeup and being a serious person. Life without laughter is meaningless, and if you can’t be silly once in a while what’s the point?
This blog is about more than where I’m performing, and what I’m selling (although there will be plenty of that!), I want it to reflect all the things I’m interested in and to be a place to connect with a great variety of people. One of the things I’m most looking forward to is hearing from you. I want to know what you think, and what interests you. We don’t always have to agree on things, but when we don’t let’s do it with respect and civility. There’s enough ugly in the world, I’d rather not add to it!
With that in mind, I want your comments starting right now! As an incentive to overcoming any lingering cyber shyness you may have I am hosting a little giveaway. Fall is probably my favorite time of year and autumn in New York is the season at its most romantic. I’m giving away to one lucky commenter some essentials for a romantic whether you happen to be in Central Park or The Central US. There’ll be music, a copy of my CD (or download card) Breathing; Poetry, a beautiful hardbound edition of Shakespeare’s Sonnets and chocolate, a $25 gift card to one of my favorite epicurean haunts The Meadow, which sells an amazing variety of high end chocolate, or if savory is more your speed, gourmet salts (I’m addicted to their black truffle salt). All beautifully packaged and delivered right to your door. To enter all you have to do is pop into the comment section and tell me what’s on your mind. Tell me about yourself, what you think of the new site, what features you might like to see on the blog, or just say hi. Once you’ve made your comment and it has been posted I’ll put your name in my gorgeous sequined vintage hat and draw a winner out of it at random. I’ll be posting a winner on Monday October 1st so you have until then to make yourself heard! I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
