I could apologize for the absence but I’m not sorry. For me writing songs and blogging sometimes clash in my brain making it hard to do both at the same time. Imagine patting your head and rubbing your tummy. Yeah that is what blogging and songwriting are for me.
It’s been hectic but fulfilling lately. I traveled to the state capitol and I shared about my passion for the version of Cyber School my kids attend. I had appointments to speak to state representatives about our school and the good it is doing with the students it serves. It was an emotional but fascinating day. I was able to convey the ideas of a non profit cyber charter using not for profit curriculum’s to bring the kids who public school does not work for, a whole person education. My story was well received.
I could tell you that Thorazine is more active than I ever thought it would be again. We have a few shows out of town; a couple upcoming interviews, we are planning a West Coast tour for the summer, and are going into the studio to record for inclusion on a punk compilation and for releasing on the Internet. It’s wonderfully overwhelming and I often think to pinch myself because this is the life I love. I adore Elliott and the kids. I would do anything for my family. At the same time I really have always loved making music. I actually got to write a song about the darkest days of special needs parenting which has been incredibly freeing.
Thorazine’s next interview is this Tuesday March 10th at 9PM with the Ed Show Fanzine out of Tampa Florida. The whole band is going to attend via google hangout. I am going to have to cut the meeting of the summer swim team board short to be home in time. Elliott is going to get the kids to bed after swim team so we can both be on the interview. This is representative of what our life is like lately.
