NEWS & ADVENTURES of a Philosophical Folk Songstress                              ~ March 2011
Hello Friends, 
Happy Monday! 
Just wanted to offer & remind you of a few things you could do in Santa Cruz before the month is over that involve Rejuvenation, Meditation and Guitars... All in three lovely upcoming shows. In particular I've been working very hard on the Mariposa's Art Guitar Fundraiser Concert and I do hope you'll join us at the Crepe Place on Sunday March 27th.
If you live elsewhere, I'll be going elsewhere very soon. Check the updated calendar. If I'm not currently scheduled to visit YOUR elsewhere and you want me to be, let me know. I'd love to see you.
I've recently added some awesome new links on my site that I hope EVERYONE will visit & be inspired by. This one in particular has been rocking my world: Go!
~ with songs, love, & an open heart,
