Hello Dear Ones!  It's been a mild winter here in the Pacific Northwest, which means inspirational beach walks along the Salish Sea, striking sunsets and rainbows arching in the mist.  I've been busy playing Christmas engagements and am honored to be a part of uplifting and connecting folks from all walks of life as they enjoy music of the holiday season. 
For all of Creation, the short days and long nights of Fall and Winter allow for energy [...]

Spring Greetings Dear Ones, it has turned out to be a beautiful spring here in Seattle.  Through our tears and joys, we are continually reminded of the impermanence and fragility of life.  Flowers bloom like paint bursting upon a canvas, the stillness of the Salish Sea soothes my ears, our dog Lucky jumps joyfully when we come home each day.  Life goes on and so does the music, dear ones.  It is the silence between the notes that makes [...]

Hello Dear Ones! 
Spring is around the corner - I'm writing to share my recent experience in New York , and to thank my sponsors again for helping to make the trip possible (click News for Sponsor List).
