My Favorite Female Musician of All Time

My favorite female musician of all time is Patty Griffin. Her music moves me at the deepest level. She is a singer/songwriter and a master at her craft. I’ve seen her in concert several times and each show has been a unique and original experience. I first heard Patty’s music when my friend Sarah played…

Mail, Mix Tapes and Me

When I was in middle school, two of my favorite things were mail and mix tapes. I loved giving and receiving both. We’ve already established that I developed a love for writing early in life, so writing letters was a regular part of my years. And having an uncle who is a DJ took mix…

Without Him How Lost I Would Be

Last night my baby boy had me up all night and I just couldn’t get him to calm down. He has not been sleeping well at all lately and, exhausted, I was at the end of my rope. I was tense and frustrated and about to lose my mind. Suddenly I found myself singing songs…

What’s Going On??

I am so anxious to get some blogs going about our trip.  However, we hit a minor MAJOR snag when we returned to a broken MAC desktop.  I can’t fully talk about it until I know exactly the prognosis but it does not look good.  I am now a cautionary tale: BACK UP YOUR JANK…

Vacatunes

You’re Coming Home to Me

It is not secret that my favorite musician in the wide world is Patty Griffin. On her latest album, Downtown Church, she sings “You’re Coming Home to Me” with Julie Miller (wife of the amazing Buddy Miller).  This song is hauntingly beautiful.  I can’t listen to it without crying. When I listen to this song,…
