My very first solo performance EVER was at Grape Creek Winery in Georgetown about four years ago, after they had just opened. They'd had a cancellation and I was lucky enough to have some friends moonlighting there who really wanted to help me along my journey.  At this point, I had performed many times with a band and a duo, and I had gotten pretty comfortable doing those types of gigs, but never had I done a show all by myself. I was fucking terrified! But I had just seen "William Shatner - It's His…

Strange But True 

If you’ve signed up for my mailing list then you’ve already heard this one: I’ve always had a strange connection to the song Broken Wings by Mr. Mister. For many years, every time I heard the song played in public it signaled that a huge change was coming to my life. A breakup, a move, a new job, could be good or could be bad, but it always signified something BIG was coming. For this reason I never purchased the song. It was too valuable to me otherwise. You don’t really hear that song on the radio much…

What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last 6 months? 

For me, I’d have to say the book "Tools of Titans" by Tim Ferris, though I didn’t actually purchase it. I checked it out at the library. I already talked about that in a previous blog post, but this book has some seriously good nuggets in it. Just open it to a page and BLAM, you’re smarter, better, faster… There is so much awesomeness in this book I don’t actually want to share it because you might become more awesome than I am. 😉

Words To Live By 

My all time favorite quote is from the movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula. In the movie, Jonathan is on the train heading to Transylvania to meet with the Count, and he's writing to his beloved Mina and he says, “It’s as if I have a part to play in a story that is not yet known to me.” I love this quote because it speaks to that part of me that wants to know my purpose in life, which I'm not sure we can ever really know. I’ve struggled with that question all of my life and I still don’t have an answer. Will I…

What is your favorite documentary or movie? 

My all time favorite movie is shared by two films: Office Space and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The first because I have lived the life of Peter Gibbons. When I got my first office job I worked as a file clerk for a convenience store chain. The owners were brothers, who were also both lawyers, who were constantly at odds with each other. One minute you’d have one standing at your desk asking you to do one thing, and then an hour later you’d have the other one standing there telling you to do something else. It…

If I were to give a TED talk 

I love TED talks. I've watched some really great ones. If I were to give a TED talk about something that were outside of my main area of expertise, it might be about the importance of taking time out for yourself. Or it might be how writing can keep you from going insane. Or perhaps simply how to crochet a scarf. I’ve crocheted enough scarves to feel like I could give a TED Talk on the subject. Bullet points could include how to pick the right yarn for your project, what stitches to use, and how to…
