Autumn is Here

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,
😉 M

    Meg, so glad to find your web page! My brother sent me a link to Capt Jack on youtube. Great to hear it again. Didn’t know you were in AR. We were just there in June 2012 visiting family. I’ll look for some of your CD’s on line. The cassette tapes I made from your LP’s are pretty old! All the best.

    We have some rare, sunny days here on the West Coast. Gorgeous morning all glittery and frosty.

    Are you still singing? I’m a bit behind the times…have you released any new albums lately?
