My husband has cancer.
Nope. No joke. The most commonly asked question I get these days is "where have you been?" or "when are you going to play again?" I know. Even I anticipated getting back on the scene by now. I even had a gig or two set up for late summer.
But... life has thrown me yet another one. About a month ago my husband was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of non-hodgkins lymphoma. And, of course, that changes things.
If you're interested to read the details, you can find them on my personal family blog. I know, I know. I get lots of people concerned about my giving such personal information on my music site. But, you know what? My music is personal. Singing is personal. Songwriting is very personal. Everything about my music and performing is more personal than many people get even in day-to-day interactions. So... I figure as long as I don't get any crazy fan stalkers, no harm in sharing (Hey, you two fans that I have left after all this time, no stalking! k?)
