For those who may be interested in a deep journey this Fall, I will be co-hosting a workshop at the Kalani Retreat Centre on Hawaii Big Island on November 21 - 25 with Lindsey Oneill. It is titled "Embrace Your Abundance" and is aimed at "Igniting your divine love and wealth in all areas of life." I will play a concert the weekend before at the Centre. More at

I have had the honor of a National Film Board documentary using my music as the main soundtrack for an upcoming release. I am supposed to keep the project undercover until it is officially released, but can say that it is beautifully produced and completely in synch philosophically with my own pathway. Should be out this Fall.

I will have copies of The Farmer's Cathedral ( my fourth solo recording) in hand in a few weeks, and will tour this fall with it . A few dates are already in place, see below, hope to see you there.

I want to give a shout out to some of my summer musical encounters, particularly to the amazing Trio Dinucu ( Gypsey Jazz) and the lyric poet Matt Tomlinson. Check out their sounds!

The complexity of life carries on, while all along the watchtower we artists tend our fires.

In the key of confusion, you sneak up on Heaven
And nothing you think about anyone else can save you...

Traditionally we are headed to the harvest time. I hope all of your work this year brings you a productive season in all your projects, inner and outer.

(From notes in the margin of
a poem by William Blake)

"Arise ye little
glancing wings
and sing your
infant joy.
Arise and drink
your bliss
for everything
that lives is holy.

And ye who bind
yourself to a joy
do the winged
life destroy
and ye who kiss
your joy as it flies
live in eternity's sunrise...
