The Hobo Song feat. Coley the parakeet

Hello, friends and fans. It’s been a while since I’ve had much to say–been playing and learning, but not a lot of projects in the mix. There’s a whiff of an album- I’ll know more after Sunday. Until then, enjoy this. I wrote this song when I was on the road living in my Nova. As you can see, it’s quite uncomplicated. I hired Coley the parakeet as a test audience. He would love to know what you think, if you don’t mind that he added his own sound effects.

i’m the luckiest girl in the universe

sunny was adopted in montana when she was a year old.  i assumed she had not seen the beach.  when i first took her, it was to the carpinteria bluffs nature preserve.  there is a trail that runs under a line of eucalyptus trees, on the cliff overlooking the ocean.  her first glimpse of it was one of the most beautiful i can imagine.


we later went to seaside, oregon, and today, a year and a half later, we came to lincoln beach to work off our oats before heading to town.

suffice to say it was a happy reunion.
