Lou blog: At the end of yourself….

This week I have found I’m at the end of myself.  I have been running on nearly empty.  I feel a little bit beaten and bruised.  Im vaguely surprised that I have made it to the eve of the weekend.  There have been tears shed and a few sleepless nights.  There where times I doubted […]

Lou Blog: God moments at a gig
