Lately I've been disappearing

Sitting in the backyard of my home in Santa Cruz, sipping coffee in the morning.. it's just the sounds I hear...the wind rustling through the leaves, a bird call, the "clink" of my silver coffee cup as it settles itself on the wood porch.
I was up early... way before dawn. I'm learning to trust this movement.
"Really? Out of bed at 2:30 a.m.?" "Okay".

And the day begins....
The sounds I hear and this idea of "me" are floating somewhere inside a silence and stillness with no boundary. Here's the first verse of a song that's been coming through recently. It's got a funky, lively feel... (the dots are an attempt to give you a sense of the groove.)

Lately... I've been.. disappearing..
I know.. it's a.... strange thing to say..
Luckily I've been.. hearing this music
And it's.. helping me find my.....way

It's true. The songs know more than I do.

At 6:30 I wake my son Sam (11). This is his first day in a new school. I love kissing him awake, snuggling for a while. Then he gets some limbo time as I pack his lunch... peanut butter and jelly, an apple, some sliced cheddar cheese....

He has a bowl of cereal and we walk out the door... down a ravine and through a eucalyptus forrest on our way. The morning mist floats in and behind the trees in many shades from grey to bright silver.

We are quiet as we walk, holding hands... and it's magical.

All Love,

Germany Summer Tour 2011 - Thank you for listening!

Dear friends,

This is a big thank you to all of you for being part of this year's Germany summer tour. It was such Grace being with you. So many sweet memories (it's okay to look back...just don't stare).

And a special thank you to Edmund, for everything you did to organize the tour, and to Arthur for the design of the beautiful flyer/tour schedule.

So many great musicians I connected with as well, I can't wait to sink into the music with you guys. I love it when we play in such a way that we can hear ourselves and everyone else at the same time (I think there's a teaching in here somewhere). There's just about nothing better - and all of it for the beauty of the awakening. Living Truth through the music.
It's amazing to suddenly have so much support for the music. And - no coincidence - it's been pouring out stronger than ever. The learning and opening continues ... Maha Dev.

It feels great to write this, feeling so many hearts - right here. Thank you.

All Love,
