I made the decision at the beginning of 2017 to fill my time doing more and more of what I love. As you might guess, performing is one of those things. So is traveling. I also decided that I'm over playing loud bars that have drunk banter and broken beer bottles acting as my backing band. So, about 3 months ago I started reaching out to folks around the globe via social media, asking if anyone would be into hosting a house concert. I am happy to report, that I have just returned from a successful weekend tour of shows held in awesome homes with beautiful, supportive listeners. And, although it was up to the band and I to provide and set up our sound, sell merchandise, keep track of sales, get drive us from point A to point B night after night...it all felt weightless.
When I do what's in my heart (the stuff that excites and energizes me) my "work" doesn't feel like work at all.
I'm a pretty firm believer in the of the Law of Attraction. The idea that every action causes a reaction. That what we do, say and think has a vibrational frequency that attracts people, places and things of similar frequency. Like a magnet.
By doing the thing that brings me joy and gets me all giddy, I was able to attract amazing folks with lovely homes and attentive listeners, and enough money to cover my expenses and pay my band and myself.
Pretty. Friggin Rad.
OH, and the gals and I came up with a band name
Eh hem, Joanna Barbera & the Sirens....
