Inspired in Oakland: Bloomin’ Beauty

“True beauty is a ray
That springs from the sacred depths of the soul,
and illuminates the body, just as life
springs from the kernel of a stone and
gives colour and scent to a flower.”
― Rumi

Things are beginning to settle now with the flurry of musical tasks almost done; band & I have been working hard on some new tunes, getting ready for my CD release at Yoshi’s next week. I have some radio left to do, some tour details, and then a short break.  Whew!!  This Banksy bird (in SF) sums up what I feel; it’s time to stop the town crier and save my voice now 😉

Meanwhile, Spring has been everywhere exploding these last weeks.

We have a tiny tree in our front yard. Until it bloomed, we didn’t know what it was. Dogwood, we think. 😉

I am not usually a rose grrl, but since we have a community rose garden not far away- it has been fun to see them a little closer. There are hundreds of them!

“True beauty is a ray
That springs from the sacred depths of the soul,
and illuminates the body, just as life
springs from the kernel of a stone and
gives colour and scent to a flower.”
