|Yes. but once you master the art of appreciation,|
it all becomes clear.
Hope you don't mind a second musing so early this week - I have a couple of gigs and political events to tell you about, but first I'd like to share this cool image, posted on my facebook music page this morning. I know this feeling well. Thankfully, experience and appreciation bring clarity - so as we get older and are able to place things in perspective, we don't react the way we used to when we were younger (or less experienced.)
Upcoming Events :
Tomorrow, April 20, is the District 4 Candidates Forum in Lagunitas, 1 Lagunitas Road, in the school multipurpose room. The school is located just behind the San Geronimo Valley Community Center, 6350 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Funny, I just did a gig with my friend Jose there this past Sunday.
btw - I also posted on Nextdoor.
Thursday, April 21st, there is the Women's Political Action Committee Endorsement event at the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce on Fifth Street.
This Friday April 22nd, I'll be sitting in to jam on some jazzy tunes with RPM
Richard Wood on B3, Pat Duffey on mellow guitar, Martin Cunningham on drums plus special guest Dan Duffin on bass
They'll start at around 7:00 pm
I'll sit in starting at around 8:30 pm
So, if anyone wants to talk politics outside, come hang out. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.
-- I am still collecting donations for campaign expenses. I'm not going to litter our landscape with plastic signage. Please call 415-789-6274 if you would like to help out by making a sign out of recycled/upcycled something or other.
Save the date : May 12th - I'm gathering some friends to help raise money for the Throckmorton Theatre's Youth Scholarship Program. I guess it would make more sense to raise money for my campaign, but I usually don't do the usual, I do what feels right.
More details to follow. I promise you it will be a fun time.
Again, please contact me if you can volunteer some time to help out with this event.
I'd like to share a couple of articles with you. This came out on April 7th in the Point Reyes Light. I sound a bit like I'm rambling at times, because Samantha Kimmey is very easy to talk to so I felt as if I was chatting with a friend :
This IJ article was brought to my attention yesterday afternoon :
When I was invited to participate in this particular article, I was told that we were going to be given a list of questions, each of the eight candidates was going to answer and it would be published as such : a question would be listed and then the candidates' answers would follow. That didn't happen. Apparently, there wasn't enough room in the paper.
Such is life in the real world.
We expect one thing and get another.
On that note, here's a tune for Tuesday :
Hope you have a wonderful day.
p.s. Vines is in San Anselmo : 906 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.
