Grateful for the Sognefjord and Sogna Sue

So I just posted this on Facebook this morning: “It’s seriously challenging to assemble thoughts and energy when grieving, yet it’s also good and beneficial to have good things to plan and prepare for…while seriously challenging… I have several really good such things coming up! Tonight is one: A gig for which I get to […]
