In 1785, Robert Burns famously wrote “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley”. John Steinbeck modernized that in 1937 to “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, or as we are more likely say in 2015, “Shit happens”.
Julie moved back to Atlanta to focus more on acting while continuing to write, record, and perform her music. Sustaining injuries from an auto accident was not part of Julie’s best-laid plan. Unfortunately, with the accident things have gang aft agley and Julie’s had to re-work her plan a bit. The injuries have required some significant treatments the last several weeks.
But Julie’s one of the more resilient people I’ve met – you probably have to be to be a musician and actor – and she’s working through her physical limitations to reach out to her audience as best she can. She’s recording, preparing for a music video, writing songs and collaborating on a screenplay. That’s a lot more than I usually take on, but for Julie that constitutes slowing down.
Julie’s continuing to perform when she’s able – and has shows upcoming in Brookhaven (March 17), Alpharetta (March 20), and Chattanooga (March 21). Check out the Calendar page for show details.
