Swimming Snakes

My biggest valley this year has been not seeing my kids or my parents at all due to the pandemic. We live in 4 different states.

Now for the peaks – 

           I have another song, Old Wives Tale, demoed by my co-writer Bob Huston here in Nashville, who has just released the song and plans to put it on his next EP. You can find it here: http://reverbnation.com/bobhuston/song/32333348-old-wives-tale

           My guitar accompanist, Greg Tape, has been helping me get familiar with my recording software so that in a couple weeks I expect to have one huge arrangement done. We are paring down over 50 tracks! 

           I have been enjoying the binoculars Greg got me for Chanukah. On Friday I pulled up to my favorite overlook by the Harpeth River at sunset, and watched a snake swim by with its mouth open and tongue flicking in and out. The woodpecker in our yard evades me, however. Every time I run out back to take a photo, he flies away. It reminds me of how evasive this year has been. Every time we think we have established a routine to “deal with” the chaos, the new normal we have built flies out of our grasp. Which is why I appreciate every fleeting moment of happiness and success. Now more than ever, I am touched by how you stay with me on my music journey. 

           Please write me about your news and stay healthy and sane! 

           Musically yours,

           Eileen
