Hi there!  I realized recently that my last “Blog” would almost already apply again to this year, as Spring is just over a month away!  I need to keep up on these things…

It’s raining L.A., much to my great joy.  I’m lucky to have a cozy home with a fireplace that has gotten a lot of use this last few weeks.  Mostly what I’m feeling these days is gratitude for my life, my family, my friends, my health and just basic privileges in this world… especially when I think of the less fortunate.  So much happens in our hectic lives, that I forget to look around and realize how much I have to be grateful for.  

As you know, we’re heading back to the U.K. and Ireland in a couple of weeks, with the lovely Sharon Corr, of The Corrs!  She and I are doing a co-bill, where we’ll each play a set and sit in on a couple of songs with each other, then at the end play several songs together with the band and feature our vocal harmonies.  This should be really fun and something different… it’s good to change things up sometimes.

I will then head over to Paris (!!!) for one show with just my band and me.  I’ve been trying to get back to Paris for a few years, and we’re finally going to get there…yay!!  Come on over from Belgium or Denmark or The Netherlands and spend the weekend in Paris!!  I am slowly branching out to other countries, as you can see, and we really look forward to visiting you there… and soon to many other places I’d love to visit.  

I hope you all have a lovely end of winter season… stay warm and dry, and oh, how about a couple of book recommendations…??  

I just read 3 excellent books:

Olive Kitterage, which came out awhile ago, Less, which I believe just won the Pulitzer and I’m just finishing Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.  All three are great reads… not without some tough sections, emotionally, but excellent books.  

See you on the road in a couple of weeks!!!  

Peace and Love,

Vonda
