Dear Ones, 

Just a quick note this month ~  an invitation for you to SING and then SONGWRITE with me! 

It's no secret that life has been hard for all of us lately, but engaging in creative acts is a wonderful anti-dote to the stress and anxiety of life.

So do take note and join me this weekend and next Friday. I can't wait to share music with you. (Details below!)


love & song, 

Xoxo

your mama musician

RISK/BENEFIT


I am no fortuneteller, nor could I be
I cannot see the future I cannot see
 
Risk/benefit, risk/benefit
Put it on a scale and throw the dice
 x2
 
Will we be lucky, walk through unscathed?
Will we be sorry as we dig another grave?
 
Risk/benefit, risk/benefit
Put it on a scale and throw the dice
 x2
 
I harbor all the darkest fears
I keep thinking, I may loose what I hold most dear
 
Risk/benefit, risk/benefit
Put it on a scale and throw the dice
 x2
 
Risk/benefit, risk/benefit
Put it on the scale and throw the dice
 
Risk/benefit, risk….
We’ll never know until it’s over what one was right
