A Texas Thanksgiving


I spent Thanksgiving with friends in Austin and in Wimberley, TX. Great food, great conversations and warm weather were a wonderful way to spend the holiday. The above is the beautiful quiet cabin in the Hill Country where I stayed. And here I am having fun with Sam Baker and Rodney Bursiel.

I was at Blue Rock Artists ranch for the release of the new edition of the Blue Rock Review. I am honored to say they've featured me in it, with lots of pictures and a long interview. It’s a beautiful publication, and ya'll should CHECK IT OUT.

It was a wonderful night of songs, poetry, stories, visual art, cookies, cake, coffee, hot cider, new friends, old friends and big big love of creativity and creative people. I took the stage with Tom Prasada-Rao and Danny Schmidt for the release show.

I hung with my pals Eliza Gilkyson and Tim O'Brien one night after Thanksgiving, and in this shot we kinda look like the potato eaters...

I got to hang with old friends Gurf Morlix and Sam Baker, and against all odds, I got them to start tweeting. I also got Scott Nolan to start tweeting, and I feel like the twitter team captain right now. I'm loving twitter. It's a great way to stay in touch with people everywhere simultaneously.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

P.S.—Check out my friend Claudia Corrigan D'Arcy's web site. She is an adoption rights activist and all round bad ass brave human, doing great work in this crazy world we live in. She was kind enough to feature my posting from last weeks song on her site.
