Road to Tahoe

So, this song that you are about to view is a song I wrote 7 years ago.  Back in 2004, I was in the Snake Oil van riding in the van from the High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, California to Lake Tahoe, where we had a gig.  That is when I gave birth to this song and we are still playing it today.  Very cool.  This is from last weekends performance at Tree Sound Studios.

What a weekend.  Playing with my Snake Oil Family is bliss.

Life’s Blessings

Me and my Bubba dog happy as can be

Happy Friday everyone.  I know that I have not been an active” being” on my own blog these days.  Yeh,…… I do put posts up here and there, but I know my heart and soul have not played an important part on this platform and I do apologize.  I just had a rough winter with my own crazy issues.  But u know what it really doesn’t matter in the end.  We are all just human, living our lives through all the ups and the downs.   But right now,  I am sooo happy that Spring is here and we are approaching the warmer months.  I have been practicing my yoga a ton lately and eating salad from the lettuce from our garden.  Life is so amazing.  Even through all the sadness I have endured in the past I feel so blessed right now in the present moment with all the positivity around me.

Thanks for coming to visit me from time to time.  I am still playing music sporadically and I am trying to figure out where my life’s path is suppose to take me.  I am just grateful that I have my health, my family, my friends, my relationships, my music and my yoga.  Thank you Lord up above for all the blesssings that you have given me.

Om Shanti Om Shanti Om Shanti

Peace, Peace, Peace

Babies on the Stage

Just returned from the 14th Annual French Broad River Festival and had a stellar time.  I emceed the fest and played with The Tater Diggers and Snake Oil Medicine Show.  The weather was perfect and I danced my butt off.

One highlight of many for me was having some fun festival kids up with me on stage.  Just love the babies.  Bring em on….
