Lovett

I’m shamelessly in love with Lyle Lovett. My husband fully endorses this one-way romance and takes me to see Lyle every year when he tours through the Chicago area with his large band. We saw him last night. I’m still flying high. 

Here’s the thing. There are better singers. There are better songwriters. There are better musicians. But I feel like there is no musical artist better at knowing himself, and I respect that quality above all others. He is polite, quirky, rugged, and intelligent, and he values passionate folks with big hearts. 

How do I know (outside of being a stalker)? Because he just exudes it. I feel like this man has never gone through an identity crisis. He is who he is, take it or leave it. 

I clearly take it. 

Reader, I’m endlessly inspired people who are what they are. Their self-confidence just rubs off. My heart is so fueled today that I’m off to work on my next album, and also spend a little more time at my restaurant. Whatever you’re up to this week, do it around real deal people. Live your truth, and expect others to do the same. In the end, is there any other way to really live? 

See you next Sunday. -Em

    Hi Em Sounds like things have been tough around your house too. July was a terrible month for us also. Steve had to have another surgery on his leg. His body was rejecting the rod that had been inserted some months ago. He needed the rod to be removed and the infection eradicated. He now has a " halo" ...outside the leg brace from his knee down to his ankle to support his leg. He will probably be with us for 9 more months to a year. You are right... all we can do is make the best of it. It's not the end of the world. Hang in there, Em. Any idea when Norwegian will be ready to open?

    Oh I'm so sorry, Tom. No exact time on The N, except it's still moving forward. My architect, electrician, plumber, and HVAC team are plowing ahead, and I'm building what I can at home. Sending hugs to you and Sheri!
