2021 - This is year 13! Holding my breath, crossing my fingers, not walking under ladders or opening umbrellas. Obviously last year the tour did not happen. I hit 7 states before the accident. I don't even feel like the same person anymore. Covid outbreak and shutdown right after the accident. Recuperation has been a long battle. Fortunately Covid hasn't hit anyone in my family as of yet. AND Biden is in office. I'm not pushing my luck for more than that. Staying healthy and writing some songs would be nice.
So I feel the need to change this long profile of my FAWMS to what is going on RIGHT NOW. On 2/7 /2020, I was hit head-on and then T-boned by a young out of control driver. My life is now a series of dr. appts., attorney, insurance and even buying new car stuff. I feel like writing but when I've done too much the pain drives me to bed. I think I'll make it...pacing myself. I still think it's my year. I still plan on touring all 50 states this year. Wish me luck!
2020 - My 12th FAWM!! Time sure does fly, even if you don't believe in it. THIS IS MY YEAR! The year of Capricorn. My bd this year 1-10-2020 had a Full Moon AND eclipse! I've embarked on national tour starting with Hawaii 12/8/2019.

Thank you for listening and commenting on my song "Start Walking in Your Dreams" and collab with mikeb "Tears at Midnight", it is appreciated!!
I mentioned you in my last song “Fears of my least favorite things” well, kinda.
Thanks for listening to all of my songs and all the comments! I am trying to build back some momentum that I've lost over the last couple of weeks.
Hope you are having a great Month! 😁
See, you ARE a polyglot. Thanks for listening.
Thanks so much for your comment on Good evening, My Belgrade!
Hi Lori - Thanks for your comments on Jane and John Doe. I didn't know that about Hawaii. The sad thing is so many people are just a paycheck away from being homeless. I wanted to reference that in the lyrics.
This is what I get for listening on my phone - I couldn't pick up the swears. Ah well.
Heya Lori. Ya had to lurk a couple of years. I’m down this year from covid.
Thanks for the note Lori 😀 . TBH, I thrifted that one in the last round of 'stuff I'm not using anymore' reduction. In my case I just need to get the brushes and paint tubes out more often. Once I start, I'm on my way 😀.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment on "The Zodiac Wheel"!
Hang in there, better days are ahead 😀 . Fun side story, I went through The Artists Way chapters and most of the exercises back in 2012 when the book was recommended at a songwriting workshop. I had never painted except a couple paint-by-numbers as a kid, however some of the stories in the book sparked the desire for me to start painting. So I bought some inexpensive supplies to try it out and had so much fun I painted every day for years. I've slacked off this last year (that inner critic) and post-FAWM I do intend to get back to that. 😀
Thanks for all the comments on my collab songs, Lori! The credit goes to the lyricists!
Thank you Lori for your interesting comments about my music.
Dear Lori! Thanks so much for your kind comment on "Don´t look at me that way"... I would LOVE if you gave them a try... 😀
<3 <3 <3 You are a damn sweetheart. Thanks so much for the love and comments.
The next time we hang out in person, let's drink some Firebrand wine! I miss our chats on deep things.
Hi Lori for your beautiful words about my skirmish piece. If I have it transcribed I'll let you know. I love it when someone is happy to play my piece/s. Thank you for the inspiration.
Thanks Lori. Tokyo is brilliant. Absolutely love it!
Thanks for the comment spree! I'll look forward to catching up on your stuff soon! 😀
Lori - I had no idea! I hope 2021 treats you better. Maybe your experience will be a muse for this year's FAWM journey.
Thanks so much for commenting on "Flagged".
How did I not know?????
I knew about the tour and loved your pics in Hawaii. Then Covid hit and we went into another mode.
Sorry you went through so much.....and glad you are here
I hope all is ok with you. You rock, and you're ace! Yes!!!
I hope you have a great FAWM.
Hi Lori, not looking too promising for FAWMstock this year, but we can hope!
Not to worry about my poor piano, it will outlive me (currently it's at 141 years and can go forever because the tuning system is entirely ironmongery, no wood anywhere) and besides, it's keeping the recorders safe in its bosom. Actually I do play it but not here, as it's tuned a quarter tone down and there's a string I need to replace (the broken bit removed with wire cutters to get rid of the twannnnnggggg but now is duo corda and feeble!)
I'm in this year. Let's rock!
Happy FAWM to you Lori!!
Thanks, same to you!
May FAWM bring you songs, solace, joy, or some combination of the three! 😁
Happy FAWM to you too! Looking forward to your songs 😀
Hi Lori, great to be back. Not going to force anything but got definitely feeling the urge to write again. Looking forward to hearing you too.
Hey! It is so nice to see you here again! Thanks so much for the kind welcome! I am looking very, very forward to your new music!
Right?! Thinking you've been jinxed enough during the non-13th years!
P.S. 13 is like the Death Card. It's not always bad 😉
Happy FAWM!! 💜
Hey Lori! I missed having the East Coast FAWMStock this year. Cheers to happy FAWMing!
Wishing you good writing, Lori 🎶🐦
Indeed! To the coffee machine! How many hours before midnight? lolol
Hi Lori - I'm so sorry to hear about your misfortune. I barely participated in FAWM last year and must have missed the news. I hope you are gathering strength to use that wonderful voice again soon, and when a tour is in the works I will definitely come see you!
Hey Lori! 😀
Can't wait to hear some new creations from you.
Hey girl, bring on some music!!!
I hope you're back again with us this year, Lori. May your 2021 bring health and vitality, from one piano-sister to another.
Happy FAWM 2021! Lucky year 13 for you! 🧑🎤🎹🎵
