sunday 4PM EDT The Chrysalis: BLOOM

sometimes there’s god so quickly -tennesse williams

Hey Hartlist,

First things first: I have a gig!!

Saturday, May 8, 8PM
opening for the hilarious Liam McEneany
The Kraine Theatre
85 E 4th Street NYNY

As in, a few songs, live and in person. IF you have been vaccinated (and they mean it), you can snag one of the limited tickets (22) and come hang with us. I don’t have the ticket link yet but will soon! And if not, never fear!! The event will be livestreamed. Liam is an old friend from the long-running comedy night ‘Sundays at Seven’ at the Irish Arts Center, which keeps inviting me to guest even when I don’t play funny songs, and I’m doing a few of them before his set. Live. Alive. In Person. May 8.

Also: mark your calendars for Saturday June 8 for a rooftop *band show* in Brooklyn, details forthcoming.

As usual, if you missed last week’s Chrysalis (#46: FOOLS), it is HERE and although technology thwarted my special guest you can see him juggle here.

It is officially SPRING in the city (and, I assume, elsewhere). Half the trees are bursting forth with white blossoms and the other half are covered in those tiny buds that look like haze from a block away. A friend of mine says that every year around this time, she walks down the street looking at the trees and thinks “I didn’t do that. It happened without me, and I didn’t have to do anything to make it happen.” I often think about the power of Doing Less, as in, sometimes we just need to plant a seed and then leave it alone to bloom… but sometimes we don’t even need to do that! This week on The Chrysalis 47: BLOOM, songs and such about sudden grace and easy blessings.

as always, on youtube (subscribe to get a reminder!) and/or facebook. see you there,
