Hello Mudcat friends... World is topsy turvy turbulence... My partner Dennis and I have found a delightful log home in Westwood, CA. To buy and we are staying temporarily in a small house in Quincy CA. About an hour away. Both of these towns are higher up in the Sierra Nevada and Cascades mountains and there is more snow here than where we have been living in the foothills.
I played at a rest home with my musical partner who loaned me a guitar for the gig. The staff at the facility gave me a guitar that had belonged to one of their residents who passed away. I have connected with the music community here and joined in with the performers who play each Monday at a cafe here. I also played at an open mic where a string quartet was also on the bill. This music has been therapeutic for me! Life goes on (in endless song...) and we are moving forward turning the page to a new chapter in our lives. Grief lies heavy in our hearts, but we trudge on.
