A light desert shower graced my walk tonight. There is nothing like a jaunt in the rain to reinvigorate my soul. I love taking in the Sonoran Desert air filled with earthly scents of damp creosote and mesquite. It’s like an offering of gratitude to Mother Nature for the much needed moisture, and I get to pass through the sacred exchange.
Nature feeds my soul and kindles my creativity. I’m sticking close to my desert home this summer to write. It’s time for new songs to emerge. These days in a world of noise and distraction, I have to deliberately carve out time to dwell in silence and stillness…it’s my songwriting tonic.
I look forward to seeing you on the road soon. And in the meantime, thank you for communing with me via satellites and soundwaves.
Wishing you the perfect balance of stillness and motion to feed your soul.
