One last thing… what do you do with your pain? Do you channel that into your music? How do you transform it when it comes in?


I guess you’ve got to accept. I have to look at it as part of the ride. There’s pain, there’s


joy, there’s suffering, shit happens!


It’s not always what you want to have happen, but it’s just part of the ride and you just keep hanging on! All of these things pass. You just got to ride things out sometimes. All things must end, and they do!


You’re only stuck in a place if you choose to stay stuck there. If you’re in a painful place, be there, feel it, but don’t stay stuck there. Do what you’ve got to do to get out of there.


And if you’re in a really joyful place, believe that that’s not going to last either. [laughing] It’s a lie!


I had somebody say to me… “Certainly you weren’t expecting this to be easy!”


If you just expect it not to be easy, it’s all going to be better. You won’t be as affected!


When does your tour begin?


My tour starts in November, and I’ll be back in San Francisco in mid-November. We’ve got a show in San Francisco. They’re on my website. If you have a chance to check out my website, the tour dates are on there.


Wonderful. We’re really integrating these next few issues deeply into San Francisco and the Bay Area, so we’ll be there checking out the green/eco festivals, and the farmers’ markets.


Oh, interesting. Well, that’s my son’s line of work, organic eggs.


Is he a part of a collective or a farmers’ market?

Foul Deeds: PEGIYOUNG.COM


Here’s a little insight: “Foul Deeds seemed like a good album title, because this record definitely has its share of dark themes... divorce, debauchery, disillusionment and despair,” Pegi Young says of her second album and first for Vapor Records. “But I’m not trying to be a bummer. I’m just trying to tell some stories and make music that I can get behind.”


“I’m 57, so I’m never gonna be the next big thing, but I’m cool with that,” she concludes. “If I was younger, I might be more focused on the commerce part of it. But I’m not a 20-year-old trying to make a living, so I don’t have to conform to some record company’s idea of whatever they’re looking for that week. In that way, I guess I can be truly independent and focus on the creative part. I have no idea where it will go from here, but I’m having fun and I feel really, really good about what I’ve done so far.”


“I don’t write happy songs, and the songs I’m attracted to tend to be kind of melancholy. I don’t really know why that is, but that’s just how they come to me, and I have to let 'em come on through.”


He does participate in this local farmers’ market down in Half Moon Bay, which they run seasonally until it starts getting kind of cruddy weather down there. His company is called Ben’s Coastside Farms.


I’m looking across the pasture, and I can see the girls out there right now, they’re all just free-ranging around!


I love how you call them “The Girls!” The girls out there!


My daughter has a pet chicken. She’s getting too big... She sleeps with her and perches on her shoulder. Oh my Lord! She started to sing! She’s developing behaviors I’m pretty sure were not chicken-like.


You understand this chicken-bonding thing, well that’s good! [laughing]
