Come away, come away with me
We’ll see the world beyond the trees
Come away, come away with me
We’ll be like birds upon the breeze

~”Gypsy Song”

It’s wintertime now, and that means I’m taking a hiatus from regular performing to start work on the new album, “Let Me Go.” It’s about time. I’ve been planning on it since before I finished “Fledgling.”

And yet…

Part of me feels a bit like I’ve already outgrown “Let Me Go.”  Part of me wants to go play — go explore new musical territory — instead of hunkering down to preserve what I’ve got and where I’ve been, though it is a necessary step for posterity.

Part of me wants to find a captive audience and cajole them into helping me find what works, what doesn’t, and what road I should take.

Part of me knows it’s a solitary path best explored by myself, because I know what I like and the climb is bound to be rough.

I’m impatient, however; I want things done NOW, and I keep having to remind myself that there’s time enough for everything… And everything in its own due time…
