Happy Halloween! This year I'm going as a snail. Not like a costume, but more like a state of mind.
Consider the snail: they are never in a hurry. They are independent. Snails carry their home with them wherever they go, and can retreat to it on a dime. Yet they are respectful and curious about other snails. They can smell the world around them in stereo. They generate so much slime that they actually get to glide through the world almost free of friction. They eat mostly fungi, plants, and earth, yet they never take more than their share. They help the whole forest by processing the leaf litter and occasionally one sacrifices itself for the benefit of a fellow creature like a turkey. And since they've been around for about five thousand times longer than humans have, maybe we have a thing or two to learn from them!
Exciting things ahead as I'm gearing up to start the process of releasing my new record - "March of the Mollusk" - a collection of gentle clawhammer walking meditations 8^) It will officially come out in February and I'll be trying to generate some excitement about that until then! A couple singles, a video, a special release show and livestream. Anybody have any friends in the press!?
To start, let me please share this photo taken by my good friend Andy Smith, which beautifully captures the vibe of the record. Harmony in motion. There's no photoshop here! Taken at sunset in Mendon Ponds. March of the Mollusk - coming to a bandstand or spotify playlist near you.
