Had the pleasure of meeting Kent Parkstreet
Kent’s an Aussie and is headed back to Oz soon (maybe already there?) so getting to know each other will have to happen electronically until next year. Sometimes it’s a good weird. Besides, anyone who can quote Winnie-the-Pooh is alright in my book.
Being a part of the “music scene” is like this so often that it escapes me how magical it can be. We meet someone new, become FB friends, and then get to know each other. We get to know our music, our friends and family, our religion and politics. Then, after enough time passes, maybe we actually get to sit down and enjoy each other’s company. I’m getting ready to go to my first Sister’s Song Camp next week and will be getting to enjoy the company of a lot of songwriters who regularly take Things from the inside and put them out in the open for other people to look at. Pooh understands; I try to understand.
So Kent, let me know when you’re coming back to Portland. Maybe we can share the stage again or at least grab a mid-day breakfast and cup of coffee to talk about the last song we’ve tried to move from the inside to the outside. It’s a weird time, but somethings never change. Safe travels until then.
