This is what went out to my email update list....
Hey There People that I Love!!
Yup, I’m still alive, and missing you too! Been very alive actually, surfing and soaking up way too much sunshine and music here in Kona town on the Big Island of Hawaii. I so love life here! I never wear pants, lol, just shorts and skirts. And I barely wear shoes. It’s kinda like Mayberry RFD, island style. The people are so friendly and I see whales from my lanai! And a couple of days ago, on a boat in A-Bay (’Anaeho’omalu), I saw, (NO kidding), almost 20 humpback whales in one day! (Even the captain was surprised.) Humpbacks are HUGE and some were just 10 feet away, Woo Hoo!! Including some pods called "competitive pods", which is a mommy, a baby and 3 or 4 giant guys chasing after her, putting on a big whale show, trying to get her attention, lol! Evidently fertility is very sexy in whale-ville!
Yeah, it’s great here but I do love the mainland too and I miss you people so I’m coming back to play and co-write in March and April. I have shows in Orange and Los Angeles counties, including Hallenbecks this Thurs, a SUPER fun, RSVP only house concert in Newport Beach on Sunday, and another great co-concert with my lovely and talented friend, actress/singer/songwriter Helen Slater in April at Room 5!
Show details are below but more shows are in the works so you can always keep an eye on just where I’ll be at http://www.marycoppin.com/shows/
In case you haven’t heard, I’m finally on MySpace!! http://www.myspace.com/marycoppin
Come by and "friend" me if you’d like and check out extra pics and songs that are often not at my home website.
Also, if you haven’t heard it yet, be sure and check out the song I co-wrote with sitcom star/genius/friend, Jenna von Oy (Blossom, The Parkers) and buy the CD too! http://www.jennavonoy.com Expect more co-writes from Jenna and I in April & we’re also trying to put a show together. She’s an awesome writer!
Other exciting writing news is in the works too.... but I’m too nervous to share it all yet. Please just cross your fingers and send good prayers for me!!
Okay, I have to go to bed, I’m on a plane tomorrow and I’m losing 3 hours!
(Please oh, please be WARM when I get there. Yes, I know I’m whining.)
Mahalo Nui Loa and Mmmmuuuaahhh!!

You love her acting, you’ll love her music and her spirit too! Helen and I are sharing a 75 minute concert at this hip venue. We had such a great time last time we played together..... We miss you so we purposely set the ticket prices WAY low so that ALL of our friends can come. We’ll be joined by various back up instruments, from violin to cello to perhaps even harmonica. http://helenslater.com/
