Blissful in sweat. Today there was bright sunshine. My friend, Nicole Boitos is coming for a visit and so i took my carpet from Morocco out in the front yard and swept it, shook out the red plaid Pendleton blankets, mopped the floor, and swept the pine straw from the driveway. I went for my 3 mile run with the cold wind in my face. Running is my drug of choice. I love it . It is hard and it is relaxing and it hopeful. When I run, I feel full of hope and possibility and life. I am running for my life. Literally. It is one of the few times now when I feel blissful in sweat. Yes, that IS what I mean. I realize that it has taken the place of sex for me. Had a terrific Indian meal prepared by V. and then went to see Die Another Day at the upscale mall nearby. A wonderful escape. And because that is exactly what I wanted to do , it was perfect. Nicole comes on the 4th and then after her visit, I go to NYC to do “Loser’s Lounge” with Joe Budenholzer. We are doing TWO shows on Saturday night , the 14th of December. WOW. Reminds me of my old big city lounge singing days. Hmmm. ; ) Please come see me and say HELLO !!! I mean it. And btw, I think it is still at Time Cafe on Lafayette Street at what they call Under Fez…

One more breath, One more breath, One more breath,…
