The New York City Elephant

The New York City Elephant

“One afternoon I saw a baby elephant swimming in the pond in Central Park. He didn’t appear to be with anyone so when he got out of the water I walked up to him and asked if he had a place to stay.  I didn’t open my mouth when I asked him, I “thought asked him” and he “thought answered me back” stating that he did not have a place to stay.  So, we walked together on the sidewalk down 8th Ave. to our apartment in Chelsea.  No one said a word, no one even asked a question or took a picture.  You know how New Yorker’s are, you can literally walk an elephant down the sidewalk and no one will be surprised.

My name is Rachel Hutcheson, I am a writer, a songwriter, an actor, outsider, fringe walker, rebel, never went to prom, black sheep, moved to New York City at twenty-three and performed with a boat-load of talented friends: hit the road after six years to see the sky in Chicago and then to feel the Los Angeles sun for ten.

Now I’m writing left of center Peace & Love, Power to the People, You Don’t Own Me, You Broke My Heart, and I Won’t Back Down songs in Nashville, TN. I live with my walk the line husband who I met at a kegger in Kalamazoo, Mi. when I was nineteen. View full post…

Is It The World Or Just Me Who Has Changed?

Is It The World Or Just Me Who Has Changed?

The idea that one day the world would change because of people standing in a circle, holding hands and singing “Kumbaya” used to sound cheesy, unrealistic and trite to me.  Now several times a week I find myself wishing we could all come together, hold hands and sing “Kumbaya.”  I wonder if it is the world or just me who has changed.  Is it the world or me who has changed

Thank you for reading my thoughts.

Stay wild stay free,
