January 2010: A look back, a look forward (and this week's show)

  In this issue:

1. Looking back on 2009, possibly the most eventful year of my life
2. What's in store for January

Happy New Year, friends. I started 2009 off with a meandering adventure in Choshi, the easternmost point of Japan, to watch the first sunrise of the year with my partner, Greg. There is a belief that how you spend the new year will set the tone for the rest of the year. I must say, it did.

In April, Greg and I left Japan (after 2.5 years) and returned to the US. After a brief stop in Denver, I spent most of the spring/summer in L.A. recording my album "Love War" (and getting to record with the world famous Will Kennedy!). Oh, and the album is overdue but still in production. Along with visits to New York and Boston, my long weekend in D.C. in July resulted in me and Greg getting engaged! I then saw my hometown of Orlando and made my way to Las Vegas and Reno (visiting family and future family).

After a few months of struggling with getting settled in San Francisco (and a lot of busking), I spent those amazing 10 days in Israel (after a pit stop in Dallas and NY again). Then, of course, came more resettling.

I joined the band The Shebangs and have started to make friends and meet other musicians here. It's always hard in a new city, but I'm hopeful that 2010 will bring good fortune. :)

This Saturday, January 9, I'll be making an appearance at Borders Bookstore in Stonestown Galleria. I'll be there from 4-7pm playing solo and signing CDs.

On various other days, you will find me busking in Powell Station and loving every minute of it.

I wish everyone a fantastic 2010, and I hope to see you soon!

Much love,

~Robin
