I suppose SoozMusic has been a bit quiet lately! This is due to me taking a break from it all and traveling to visit family and old friends in Europe. The desire to connect with the people that know you since childhood is sometimes too strong to ignore.
It turned out to be a magical trip! I reconnected with my brother and sister like never before. All the old junk had somehow disappeared, and there was nothing but love and respect for them and some close friends who I hadn’t seen for years. The journey helped me find my way to ‘what’s next’ after experiencing empty nesting at home and the end of a long term relationship.
On returning home, I dove back into the healing arts, treating clients and friends as an Ayurvedic Therapist at the Dhyana Center. There’s nothing like serving the community with viable treatments for improved and sustainable good health.
I coordinated another wedding and decided to offer more of this work as they are such joyful events. Brides and Grooms most definitely need help with their big day!
At this time of Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for life’s bounties in my little corner of the planet. My thoughts are for peace in the less restful places on earth. If I can help you or anyone you know with my service oriented offerings, please be in touch or pass this along.
There’s a balmy calm over the city this week – Summer is here, and the fog rolls in and out as the tides ebb and flow.
If you are lucky enough to be in San Francisco this weekend, get over to the 50 Mason Social House south of Market this Friday, June 19th for SWING NOIR. This gem of a venue serves up live music, cocktails, beer on tap and good wines in a swanky little lounge.
It’s Earth Day, and what better way to spend it than in nature. After this post, I’ll turn off the computer and all electronics, and go for a walk. I want to feel the sunshine’s warm rays, smell the blossoms along the trail, and let a smile settle on my face.
There are a couple of great shows this weekend that I want to tell you about.
Delhi 2 Dublin are coming back our way and playing at Hopmonk in Sebastopol on Friday, April 24th. D2D have been making Sebastopol one of their tour spots for a few years now, and we want them to keep coming back, so, come on out and get onto the dance floor with this upbeat, fun, Bhangra and Celtic style band. See their tour poster below if you are not in the area and want to catch them somewhere else!
If you are in Truckee, then be sure to stop by Moody’s to hear Free Peoples on Friday, April 24th. If you miss them on Friday, then you can catch them on Saturday, April 25th at the same spot! Or go both nights!!
Free Peoples have been called “ Porch rock pros”, and their songwriting is” sophisticated with twists and turns that take the music several steps from the unexpected”.
