GETTIN' HIGH ON LIFE
First there was the great night at Hugh's Room, and all the fun of playing and singing; then there was all the lovely people and wishes and looooove.
And now I'm up in the wilderness and just had a nice long bike ride alongside a few lakes this morning, finally breathing the good air of north(ish) Ontario. I contemplate the great good fortune I had at the CD launch.
It was so wonderful to see so much family and so many friends from different phases of my life - all together in the 4,000 degree heat of the venue - and them all happily jumping and talking and laughing. I'm very grateful.
And one new CD officially born to the world. It's up on iTunes too, for anyone who couldn't make it - "DecaDance".
So now, after nine compilations of original compositions, the next task for me is to make demos of jazz standards, then all the French songs I like to sing, and maybe one for blues standards too.
Somebody send me some money, please.
There are some great photos and a video of the launch, which I will post ASAP.
But meanwhile, there are wild raspberries to pick.....and maybe I'll find a fountain to bike through, like this kid at the park:
