Warmest greetings in these challenging times, friends.
So far, all events going forward are going forward. In the awareness of our worldwide health crisis, this past week 30 of us from all over the country gathered in Provincetown, MA for the annual March Cape Cod Songwriters Retreat. Many thanks to everyone in attendance for our extra care in hygiene, handling food and drink at our shared meals, and being mindful.
New insights about how to carry on with care in our contact.
It's never been more important that our leaders do the same in the actions they take, what they model, and how they respond.
I know what rings true for me.

As another birthday races towards me, on that very night I'll find myself at the
Walkabout Clearwater Coffeehouse
Saturday, March 14th ~ 7:30 PM
Memorial United Methodist Church
250 Bryant Avenue ~ White Plains
Tickets $20 in advance / Brown Paper Tickets
$25 at door

I don't often "work" on my birthday, but what better place to celebrate than in the "House that Pete Seeger Built"? A short and meaningful read:

About the Walkabout Clearwater Coffeehouse

“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.” ~ Terence McKenna

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity.” ~ John F. Kennedy
