Since very publicly revealing my age in the bikini post last week, I have to say, although I’ve never been shy about it, the revelation was liberating. Last night I received an email from CD Baby with this article: Are You Too Old to Make It?

It speaks specifically to musicians but I think it really encompasses everyone in a profession that has been typically youth oriented. The author talks about taking responsibility for your career, your beliefs, your actions, your expectations and basically making the most of what you’ve got.

We all have more resources than ever at our fingertips so why not use them all? Put one foot (or finger) in front of the other everyday and walk, skip or run, whatever serves that moment, and move your life & career forward whatever your age.

I know, age is more than a just number for all kinds of reasons. We change, we acquire, we grow, we see our moving parts take different directions, we experience, we act, we react, and ultimately we hopefully continue to evolve into better & more interesting versions of ourselves. It’s certainly not always an easy task, but the more challenging, the greater the sense of accomplishment & spiritual rewards. I wouldn’t trade my age for a million bucks. Well… maybe….

As I said in their blog, “If you’ve got a healthy passion in music or anything, live it large! NOW is the best time!”

Once again our bathroom’s the stage and here’s tonight’s skate-dance video of Deja Vu, my first single from the soon to be finished (really) CD.


I dunno. Bold, yes. Too much, too little, maybe. Here’s the video we did last week. I’m trying to lip-sync to my new recording of I Thank You at the same time. I think the skating’s a little more successful. Let me know what you think!

Brent Harvey, my fabulous music biz friend suggested the bikini today after he saw the video. He thought it was “awesome” and said other lovely things, and after we discussed my career a bit, he said you have to be BOLD in promoting yourself, hence the bikini. I was of course very flattered, but I’m sixty freakin’ years old and although a bikini is still pretty comfortable, a video?! But I’m going to be bolder, more omnipresent, more persistent because I’m 60 freakin’ years old and this is my time! Okay, we’ll see. Brent, once again I Thank You.
