I spent most of the winter on Echo Hill Ranch in Medina Texas visiting with Kinky Friedman, Tony and Nancy Parker-Simons, and the many assorted creatures who live there, Sophie, Winston, the cats under the house, and Chum, too, for awhile, the hummingbirds of April, and a seemingly endless string of wild and woolly visitors that came and went. I did a lot of writing. I moved around from building to building as company and weather dictated. I recorded this little video in the White Trailer as Spring got near. The song is called “Losin’ Hand” and I wrote it down in the red dirt Palo Duro canyon South of Amarillo.
I didn’t think I’d be going back there to Texas until the Fall, but in just a few weeks there are a string of house concerts that have sprung up and I’m looking forward to visiting and playing for my friends in Texas again.
Really looking forward to performing at the Utopia Rescue Ranch on Saturday, June 21st, which is the Summer Solstice, longest day of the year (already?), starting at 6:30pm. Contact Cousin Nancy for tickets and details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are three deer sleeping in the side yard this morning under the apple tree and it’s a windy sunny day in Colville Washington.
