As I rise this morning I am called to acknowledge the feelings that my dreams created. Performing in various parts of the world have caused me to feel some sense of longing if I've been home for a spell. I used to tell my friends and family I have a gypsy soul and I don't feel right unless I'm planning a tour, on tour, or re-entering from a tour.
With that said, I also now have a greater love for the connection of home and hearth that warms my spirit like nothing else, and when I have that connection and then leave, it makes my journey better.
I am sure there are jobs that will take me away again this year, but when I go I want to take the ones I love with me in my heart, remembering the importance of the fire that burns here at home. It is what fuels the performance.
