Hello from near and far,
The last month I’ve been zig-zagging to and fro, performing, talking about my book, signing and singing. I played the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco in early October and it was a real highlight of the month. I saw old friends Bonnie Raitt and Nick Lowe, neither of whom I had seen in years. Bonnie and I did a little catching up. It’s such a gift to see someone you’ve always loved and respected after a long time apart and find them even better- deeper, more present, more beautiful—than you remember.
The day after Hardly Strictly Mr. L and I went to Los Angeles and did the Craig Ferguson show-my third appearance on that esteemed program. He is so delightful: funny, charming and handsome. And Scottish (a big plus).
Mr. L and I also did a show at the Grammy museum in Los Angeles, and I was interviewed by Executive Director, Robert Santelli, which was a really fun evening, although a few microphone problems slowed us down. Back in New York, I was interviewed at the 92nd Street Y by the great writer A.M. Homes. She is a new friend of mine and her interview cemented my respect and admiration. She is quite amazing.
What else? I went to Rhinebeck, NY for a reading and signing and was interviewed by Joe Donahue. A really lovely afternoon.
I went to a couple of parties, I had a couple of ladies lunches, I met my four- year old great-nephew for the first time and he is a doll.
It’s a busy life but it’s a good one. I’m going back to San Francisco in mid-November and looking forward to being back in one of my favorite cities so soon.
My band, Hot Commando Bunny, was at Hardly Strictly with me and joins me again on the next West Coast trip. I just love playing with these guys- a bunch of badass sweethearts from Brooklyn.
I saved the best for last: I signed a new publishing deal with Notable Music Co. and I am THRILLED. World Domination plan now fully operational.
Lots of love from Mrs. L.
