Carl mentioned her even after I said that I wasn’t looking for her, but of course he was right all along.
I’m talking about my earlier post where I was in search of a singer to soothe my soul. I said I was looking for somebody like Sheryl Crow, but not her exactly. Well, I picked up the Globe Sessions the other day, and it was exactly what I was looking for: a little raw, that ever-important studio/demo sound, and an incredible voice to bring it all together.
So it’s been an all-Crow weekend for me.
I couldn’t sleep at all last night. So I got up for good at 4 and wrote. And wrote. And wrote some more. I did a few last-minute edits on my book, wrote some more, put air in my bike tires, wrote some more, refilled the bird feeders, wrote some more, got a fresh pound of Sumatra coffee from Starboos, wrote some more, and then showered.
Oh–I also rode that bike that sports the newly inflated tires (thank you very much) up one too many hills. First time on a bike since July of 2004.
Oooooh, boy. I’ll be lucky if I can walk tomorrow.
At least I’ll be able to listen to Sheryl and, you know, write some more. To me, it’s the definition of a perfect weekend.
Hope you are enjoying yours!
