Dear One, 

Not too long ago I had a lot of big ideas for this summer. I was swept up in the excitement of our world opening up again, and opportunities to gather IN PERSON and DO THINGS together!

And then, I paused.
And I sat with my heart, and I listened.
I realized that outward expansion is not where I am right now. In fact, I am utterly exhausted, on multiple levels. And before I rush into whatever is next, I need time to process what came before.

This is an essential part of my work as an artist. 

. . .

And so, this summer I am announcing .... NOTHING. 
No festivals, no new releases, no shows, no singing circles, no events. 

I am organizing my house, and visiting with friends & family (and HUGGING THEM!!) I am reading (things like THIS and THIS), and meditating, playing music, and spending time in nature. 

I made a little VIDEO explaining this and more, which I'd love for you to watch. 

. . .

I will note, I am not pausing on ALL things: I continue teaching private music lessons (voice, guitar, songwriting ~ so sweet, so nourishing), and also sharing my creations and inspirations regularly on Patreon. These practices are at the core of my work in the world right now, and I am so grateful for them.

. . . 

So tell me, how is your heart & soul these days?  What are you truly needing this summer in order to bring your best Self into the next chapter of Planet Earth? 

wishing you a deeply nourishing summertime, whatever you do,
with Summer Solstice Blessings,

love & song always,
~ Amanda

If you’re exhausted, you’re not alone.
If you need a little more time, I hope you can find a way to take it.
If your heart is needing healing, I hope you can receive it.
This video is the truth of what’s on my heart right now, and an invitation to you for a summer of healing.
See you on the other side


Your Invitation   ~ 

My Inner Circle ~

As I pause on the general public front this summer, I continue to nourish my Patreon. This is a special place where I regularly share my heart & soul ~ new songs, sketches, musings, celebrations, and insights into the world of the creative, artist parent.

For as little as $3 a month you can join my inner circle here, help a hard working mama musician and her family, and receive new musical inspiration delivered regularly to your inbox.

Thank you, I love you
