Beginning in 1979, I experienced several major life changes that concluded around the 2012 solar eclipse near the Winter Solstice. In this book, I share personal stories about the life and career changes that took place in that period.

The reason this book is titled It’s a Good Day to Die is because I experienced many deaths during that time on many different levels: spiritual, metaphysical, emotional, metaphorical. Each time there was a significant life change, I call that a “little death,” a term I coined from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross when I was studying and later working with Hospice.

I look at life changes along the way as if these were “little deaths” for me. Each experience inspired poetry, songwriting and/or music. It’s a lineage that I’ve documented mostly in music and storytelling.

We start in Chapter 1 with a backstory about my musical career that ended abruptly in September 1980. In Chapter 2, we see a different spiritual life that emerged thanks in part to mentor Adam Fortunate Eagle. I conclude with my experience with a few additional Native American elders and how music came back into my life full circle in Chapter 3.

Enjoy and Many Blessings!
