the government in afghanistan has collapsed.
haiti probably has 1,000 dead from an earthquake and a storm is coming.
according to the US Director of National Institutes of Health, covid cases may exceed 200,000 a day soon if people don’t start getting vaccinated.
but HEY, I WENT INTO THE RECORDING STUDIO AND WORKED ON SOME SONGS.
GOOD MORNING!!!! i fucking love you, too.
i don’t know, people, i don’t know.
i do know this: i want to take a large step back and start figuring out what my job is.
my job RIGHT NOW.
what’s my job? what’s an artist and mother of a five year old to do?
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO RIGHT NOW?
write music? write internet? write books? just shut down shop and meditate and send peace to the earth? get offline and give up? get more online and try to convince people to love each other better?
it’s a confounding question, one that i don’t actually feel too torn up about, because if the past has been any indicator, everything will be obvious as i traipse along.
one thing i do know: this community will guide me.
you always have, and you always will.
i’m about to start today’s webcast…and we’ll talk about all of this.
i have been facing a lot of life choices. we’ll talk about it.
i’m also bringing on a couple special guests: patrons angel and kristin from the USA have prepared poems, and patron and creator (and photgrapher and writer) gabrielle motola is going to check in with us from london about mental health and Being Okay. if you have something short you want to share, hit me in the question box (and just keep it short!!)
if you are not a $10+ patron you always have, as usual, my permission to game the system, up your pledge for the webcast, try it out, and bop back down to the $1, 3 or 5 tier if you’re skint. we’re pretty loose around here.
here’s the link to join.
the chat is already open and people are there:
when you join, please say hi in the chat and let us know where you’re calling from and how you’re doing. start leaving questions in the box.
note: you need to be signed into patreon for the link to work.
we start in about 15 minutes from right now….11am NZ time. 7pm NYC time. midnight london time.
clicking the link will take you to the crowdcast and it will show you the local starting time, like magic.
