My favourite time of year from September on. Although I have to do without the wonderful tree colours of the north there is still beauty to be found here in Arkansas around the cypress trees and migrating birds. I was ill 3 weeks leading into Hallowe’en from a spider bite…sheesh ! I love spiders and I didn’t even feel whatever got me but man-o-man did I feel poisoned. I got through it okay but did not get out to do anything Halloweeny. I swear, i would really like to be a guest at a con for Hallowe’en 2013, it’ll be my 60th year and I really want to celebrate (starting on my day, January 28th).
Making it to 60 has been no mean feat, I can tell you. And, if you like my music and song writing, I came really close to not doing music at all when I was young. I had been in ballet since a very early age and I won a scholarship to the New York Institute of Ballet to study under Rudolf Nureyev. BUT, at the age of 11, I had one summer to grow at least 1/2 inch…that’s all that stood between me and my ballet dream.
Needless to say, come September, all the stretching I did made me sore but no taller so I was suddenly out of ballet. I found a guitar and taught myself to play and that’s how things went from then on.
You just never know where the winds will take you, eh ?
Enjoy the Autumn breezes my friends,
