My name is Kate Hurley. I am a singer songwriter, writer, and teacher. I was a touring musician for 14 years and I have been teaching lessons for 4 years. I have played and taught everywhere from castles in Germany to slum villages in India.
I am also a writer. My book is called Getting Naked Later: Making Sense of the Unexpected Single Life. It's about the joys and frustrations of being single longer than I expected to be. I am working on a new book called Prodigal Mind about being a compassionate observer of our inner landscape.
Here are some of the things that I love:
-Dark chocolate, good cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and nut thins all on the same plate.
-Giving a hug to someone who is usually ignored.
-Being a good neighbor.
-Writing music that will get into people’s heads and bring a little more light in there.
-Traveling around the world and meeting beautiful people everywhere I go.
-Using my writing to help people feel like they are not alone.
-Seeing someone realize that there is something beautiful inside of them when I am teaching them.
-Having meals with people I love and people I live with.
-Sticking quarters on my face. Lots of them. It is seriously my best party trick.
