“Brave Enough” by Lindsey Stirling

lindseystirling2Largely drawing from the experience of losing her best friend and pianist to cancer, Lindsey Stirling’s latest album is an inspiring tribute to the strength it takes to move forward after the death of a loved one. The violinist’s latest album is packed with songs that will make you dance, cry, and sing-along (several of the tracks are duets with vocal artists).

Lindsey Stirling is commonly known as the “dancing violinist,” as she became famous through a Youtube channel showcasing her dance moves in surreal, vivid settings. Keeping with the vibe of her channel, Lindsey Stirling’s Brave Enough concert tour is equally theatrical and entertaining. Lady Woolthief can personally attest to her energetic, often moving performance. Even with having seen her in concert three times before, Lady Woolthief was still captured by the pulse of her music and the powerful visuals Lindsey Stirling works hard to keep fresh with each new concert series. This outing, she incorporates spectacular costumes, magic tricks, and humor to keep her audience engaged.

Men and women, young and old – Lindsey Stirling’s audience is diverse and equally enthused about the work this talented, unique artist has brought to life. Each of her albums has elevated her music and offered something new. The original music she offers proves she isn’t just a novelty “dancing violinist.” She is a demonstrable composer tailoring this generation’s taste to instrumental music.

Brave Enough can be found in iTunes or at Target (the physical copy comes with four extra tracks). Lady Woolthief’s favorite song on the album is “Where Do We Go,” a duet featuring Carah Faye.

Drabble:

“It would only be a fling – she wasn’t about to break up the happy home,” Sheriff Books mocked, waving her fork around in derision, a piece of chicken stuck to the end. Her voice boomed around the dining room, catching the attention of several other patrons.

Lady Woolthief, on the receiving end of the sordid tale, sat riveted. “You jest.”

“Nope,” Sheriff Books said simply, popping the chicken into her mouth.

“Did she believe her own words?”

“Unequivocally. She was convinced Missy Longworth would be nothing but fine with her husband spending a third of their monthly income putting her up. Of course, she hadn’t had the benefit of growing up with Missy, seeing as she’s ten years our junior. Poor girl never saw Hurricane Missy coming. At the inquiry, she even had the audacity to suggest to me – me, the only known female sheriff in the country – that Mr. Longworth should have kept Missy in line instead of ending their ‘fling.’”

“I don’t blame her for her naivety.” Lady Woolthief raised her voice an octave higher so any lingering ease-droppers could hear her boldly say, “If women were brought up to be autonomous, allowed a proper education, and able to hold respectable jobs, they wouldn’t need to rely on husbands or lovers to put a roof over their heads.  Relations would be purely about mutual desire, not financial benefit. Why are men so intimidated by that?”

Sheriff Books sat back cozily. “I don’t disagree, but feel the need to point out that I’m a woman holding a respectable job.”

“Not every woman has the gumption to walk into a jailhouse and demand the position of sheriff.”

“Or to steal sheep on the sly.”

Lady Woolthief didn’t miss a beat. “You think the sheep stealer is a woman?” she asked, picking up her spoon to start on her soup.

“Undoubtedly,” Sheriff Books said, staring fixedly at Lady Woolthief. “Did I mention I almost caught her Friday night last.”

“I find that unlikely,” Lady Woolthief retorted. “Why are you so convinced the sheep stealer’s a she?”

“Call it instinct.” Sheriff Books pulled a piece of parchment out of her side pouch and placed it in front of Lady Woolthief. “She leaves poems as her calling cards. You should read her latest.”

Lady Woolthief looked at the paper, genuinely interested in re-reading the poem she felt had been one of her best.

From afar I’ve watched how you treat your sheep
Kicking, starving until their wool you reap
Beautiful animals that provide for you
Deserve respect, tenderness, and comfort, too
If you don’t improve their lives each day
One by one I’ll steal them away

“Poetry is not this sheep stealer’s strong suit,” Sheriff Books said smugly.

Catching sheep stealers is not your strong suit, Lady Woothief wanted to snap. She kept her eyes down as she let the flicker of irritation at the barb pass.

“I mean, ‘deserve respect, tenderness, and comfort, too.’ Is she going for irony?” Sheriff Books continued.

Lifting her head with a brave, fake grin Lady Woolthief bit. “Irony?”

“Tender,” Sheriff Books taunted, “that’s how most people like their lamb chops.”

Lady Woolthief’s smile turned genuine. Her friend could talk tough all she wanted. As long as the sheep stealer roamed free, they both knew who had the upper hand.

Walking Dead Top Hat

This Walking Dead top hat was a custom order and design, so it’s not up in the Etsy store. Lady Woolthief still wanted to show it off, especially on Halloween! The order was for a zombie hat, featuring “Bicycle Girl.”

Materials included: a “Bicycle Girl” action figure, a Walking Dead calendar decoupaged onto wooden shims, fake grass/moss, and chicken wire.
