Hello Everyone!


I hope this finds all of you well & wonderful. This is a time of year when many of us reflect & give thanks.


We try to remember to be kind & forgiving & to be examples of peace. I love hearing stories from you all


about how you're doing your part to make change. We all really do make a difference by spreading light & love &


positivity... by starting at home, in our communities & passing the torch wider & wider.


Keep up the wonderful work.


Thanks to All of You for being in my world & for being who you are!

1- GIVING IDEAS


*As many of you know, my philosophy about & version of giving is about deeds & little thoughtful


handmade items & supporting community & those in need. So in addition to just being kind year round,


may I suggest the gift of time- an outing or phone call to someone who matters in your life.


 



*If you do like giving somethng tangible, consider shopping at or giving a gift certificate from your local


gallery, salon, buying from your area farm stand or musician or artist. It helps community!


 


 


 



*I have a huge place in my heart for foster children's programs that take in kids from problem homes.


Many kids shuffle from place to place with only what they can fit in a trash bag.


Please consider making a call & locating/donating to an area foster home!


 


*In life- I am most proud of my work at the Kerrville Music Camp for Teens... Many of the kids who attend


are from difficult home situations like those mentioned above & camp means the world to them.


Consider sponsoring a child in someone's name as a gift


(Heck- if you want to give me a holiday gift, you can sponsor a kiddo for me!!!;)


Here's the link to what we do: These kids are wonderful & inspiring & full of life & light & joy!

SAILING FUN!!!  My good friends Nancy & Chuck Koucky put all sorts of VERY COOL custom excursions


together on their gorgeous 47 foot wooden Herreshoff sailboat!


 


If you put a group together (click on cruises & rates at the site) & charter the boat for one of the excursions,


I'd come along & play music for your group!!!  


Why- because I love those guys & it would just be fun for  all


(& Chuck's my pottery guru & I'd bribe him into giving me a mug or something;)
