Artichokes in the Fall

The seeds for new growth, what a perfect time of year for pushing in a new direction.

So precious, not to be wasted
And the sunflowers keep going as though summer would go on forever Proof that faeries are real. They're billowing out of their homes and into the garden, resting in the spiders hammocks and sitting on the basil leaves, they're so pretty.

Such a Big Voice, Such a Little Mouse

Vatrena, are you in there?I have had so much fun working with my friend Vatrena King these last few weeks. Getting back into her creative space with singing has brought so much creativity and flow to all of us. Between working on booking concerts, brainstorming ideas for the year and collecting all the pieces that have already been worked on, we are busy! Today, Vatrena and I needed to pick-up a flash drive to retrieve some audio from a previous concert. We had the choice between a mouse or a penguin, real professional. We chose the mouse! That big voice fits in that little mouse? We hope so! Here's to gettin' in the flow! Check out her Myspace page

First Day of School

What a beautiful morning! Unfortunately, the 8th grade classroom burned down the day before school started but you never would have know that this campus had such a devastating experience. The teachers work hard all summer prepping their classroom, curriculum and energy for their first block of lessons. Everything was laid out and ready to go and then it was all gone. I caught a glimpse of that teacher this morning who's class is now temporarily housed in the multi purpose room. Strong, passionate and determined she was leading that class as if that's where she had intended to be and teaching lessons she had intended to teach much later in the year. I am in awe of this community.
