As I’ve mentioned before, it has been a summer filled with making music. As a music therapist, I talk about the need for self care with my clients all the time. Well, I have been practicing what I preach by making time for my musician-self.
This past weekend was a great example of that. Saturday afternoon was summer music made outdoors while neighbors and friends gathered, Saturday night was a gig sharing the stage with some Chicago greats, and Sunday morning was sharing music in the spirit of quiet meditation. Sunday afternoon I celebrated this by taking a nap and a long walk. It was a wonderful, wonderful weekend. Thanks to those friends, family and colleagues who shared it with me.
