This last month has been one of excitement and exhaustion!
Over a month ago I developed an extraordinarily annoying cold that lasted the whole month (I still have a few coughs here and there, but it’s pretty much been gone for the last week or so!). I had a horrible mucousy, wet cough, congested sinuses, and I just sounded horrible.
And in the midst of the sickness, I played at the Kansas City Pagan Pride Day 2016 on September 11th. That was probably when my cold was at its worst, but somehow I was able to convince it to let me sing. And I did surprisingly better than I thought I did! I had to chug piping hot tea in the middle of each song, but I made it.

And almost a month after that on October 6th, I had a tremendously awesome opportunity to host a house concert at my spiritual refuge, the Rime Buddhist Center, here in Kansas City. And joining me was the incomparable Mama Gina.

If that wasn’t enough to make me giddy with excitement, we had another special musical guest show up. Celia Farran. She played a couple of songs in between my set and Mama Gina’s.
The Three Bards
I also had the honor of having my friend and amazingly talented artist Brian Wesley Nutt II show off his epic artwork.

And I’m doubly excited because he’s doing my album cover for The King of Dreams.
This is a preliminary mockup of the cover, featuring the moon man, which I did myself 🙂
So as you can see, I’ve been very busy! Hopefully this month is just as productive, but perhaps a bit more laid back!
