WyoWoman So I am back ...Skarpi Iceland (42) RE: So I am back ...Skarpi Iceland 03 Aug 08

Thanks, music pals! I'm glad to be back!

I got busy with work, then really busy with learning to sing in a band, then busier being in a band, then ridiculously busy gigging several times a month, commuting to Kansas City to rehearse and perform, in addition to commuting 30 minutes the other direction twice a day to work at my day job. I trulylive in my car these days. Luckily, I have a car that gets good mileage.

Regarding my blues: Last July, one of my best friend shot and killed himself. The anniversary of that event just passed and I feel just recently as though I finally have exhaled. He was also one of my favorite music pals and so it took a big chunk of music out of my life as well.

Then, as some of you know from my postings over the years, my mother was ill and got more and more ill, finally passing in September. Toward the end there, I was driving to Oklahoma City every other weekend or so to be with her and to relieve the family members who were caring for her. 2007 was a seriously sad year for me and I truly do feel that I'm only now beginning to be able to flap my wings again.

Skarpi, did something happen with you, or did the blues just settle in?
