Life Survivorship-13

I had a friend come over tonight to do a little demo-singing for me. The next thing I know, we are composing a song together.  There was so much laughing and singing going on: two of my favorite things in the world. (And playing piano, of course. That’s kind of my thing.) It was so […]

Life Survivorship-12

I’ve been in worship ministry for over 40 years. I’ve played an old, clunkety upright; I’ve played a small organ; I’ve played a pipe organ; I’ve played a Steinway; I’ve played digital pianos in full-on bands. What a privilege. When I started playing for church, I was young. Don’t remember exactly how old, but what […]

That’s Not Something You Think Every Day #20

“I got a copy of the music video today from my producer.” I never, ever thought I’d say those words in a million years. And yet, here I am. I must confess, it took me 15 minutes to get the guts up to watch it. Like I’ve said before, I am not an actress. After […]

Life Survivorship-11

Today, I hung out at the beach with my boy. I’m pretty proud of myself: I forced myself to go into the ocean, even though I was petrified. It’s no secret that I have a bit of a history with the sea. Okay, so the water was only up to my knees, but I have […]

That’s Not Something That Happens Every Day #7

My song, “I Am Broken” was released today. I still can’t believe it. On Facebook, so many people shared my link and spread the word. This post was hands down my favorite. Yes, yes, I’m probably biased, but I think my daughter did a great job advertising this momentous occasion.
