I have written many songs about the magic of September. Perhaps because my birthday is in August or I have been a perennial student, September often feels like the new year to me.
I wrote September Again when I was around 22, having just lived in Ptown for a while and was facing a sense of who am I without the structure of school?
I wrote Sweet September just after turning 40, returning to Cape Cod, and completing 40 days of chanting that led me to my current career of music and transformation.
This September, I don’t feel a song coming, but rather an epic musical. It’s kind of a scary feeling because I have written a musical before and I know what it takes to complete it and get it up on stage. Those fans of Love according to Luc may remember it from way back in 2004.
As the new multidimensional musical ruminates in my creative psyche I will be singing and touring often in the fall, winter, and spring, so stay tuned and keep listening.
May this new moon bring you a TRUE SENSE of newness. May you awaken right NOW in this moment and create all you know you are. JOIN ME TONIGHT at Innerglow Yoga in Mashpee for a NEW MOON YOGA FLOW with Kristen O’Toole Yoga 6-7:30pm.
Let’s ROCK this September. love love love

THANK YOU to all who continue to listen and share my most recent record Wise Innocence. At this time in our world when so many seem to be giving into fear, It fills my heart with hope and love to know that folks are tuning into a vibration of community and cooperation. If you are interested or in need of some extra support beyond the music please check out what I offer at Sounding Still Wellness.
Enjoy this month and be sure to give yourself lots of time to kick back, listen to music, walk the beach and just chill. The new moon is at 4:44 today. ALL HEART BABY. soak it in and plant those seeds of LOVE LOVE LOVE
Wow. Another full moon in August has come and gone. I don’t know about you but this past weekend on Cape Cod was just perfect. Full Moon. Hot Sun. Cool air. Beach time. Live music. Family and Friends. As Mark Erelli writes in his song August, “A fool would ask for more” (ps. check out his new upcoming release Milltowns on Sept. 9)
This time last summer I can’t say I felt as good as I do now. In fact, I had just finished 30 days of antibiotics for Lyme Disease and was not feeling very inspired in general. Isn’t it amazing how our lives go through cycles. The longer I live and practice spiritual teachings I have received, the more I allow this to happen with ease and grace.
Want to open yourself to some of these teachings, not to mention connection, community, fun, and BLISS? JOIN US this weekend at Love Yoga Fest. I will be opening the day on Saturday at 7am with a chanting of the Gayatri Mantra, among other chants and then signing again on the Main Stage at 5:00pm. I will also be at a healing table with Kristen O’toole offering the Prema Agni & Rising Star Energy Healings Systems. This energy was taught to us by Derek O’Neill, who will be in Boston on Nov. 9. Stop by, learn more, and FEEL THE LOVE.
This weekend, right in Aselton Park Hyannis yoga teachers from all over the Cape and New England will be offering their joy, wisdom, experience, and fun for you to play, frolic, explore, and awaken. What a gift to Cape Cod!! I remember just a couple years ago we were doing yoga on the Green and now here we are!! Thank you Love Live Local Ladies and Annika for birthing this dream I had imagined way back then. May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and may CAPE COD lead the way.
Om Nimah Shivaya!
Happy Mothers Day to all – A little late. I was in Boston this past weekend participating in an Autism and Music Conference at Boston Conservatory. Along with the fabulous North End meal, the weekend was truly nourishing.
And now I am off to help my cousin perform her powerful play SICK.
I love May. I love this time of constant visible growth in nature and the absolute blooming of green green green and pink and yellow and all the colors. IT’s also nice this year that my inside experience matches the nature outside me, as I feel like I too am rebirthing and blooming again. This is not always this case. we don’t always feel in sync with the nature around is and that’s ok.
May 17 will mark the 7th year anniversary of my mom’s passing from this earth. 7 years. It feels like a blink of an eye and multiple lifetimes. And isn’t that how time feels these days? both compressed and expanded. It’s amazing if we are aware, open, empowered, and excited to serve ourselves and those around us, then we are able to flow with all that is. I am grateful for every moment of the last 7 years in which I experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. I am grateful for it all. In deep gratitude and honoring of my mother, Ellen, myself, and our journey together, I am sharing this song and video I created while living in Egypt in 2010.
We are all mothers in our own way. THANK YOU for all you are and all you create. Happy FULL MOON tomorrow.
love love love

Cape Cod Chat House 7-9
As some of you may know Jayajagatambe is a big hit with children. I am not sure what it is, but all the kids love this track. And I don’t know about you, but I trust kids. you can’t fake it with kids. If they are not feeling the music, that’s usually a sign the music doesn’t have it. You can LISTEN to Jayajagatambe anytime you want on Reverbnation and why not become a fan? Come to the Chat House on Saturday night and hear one of my guitar students help me play JAYJAGATAMBE. I am super excited for him and super excited for me. I will also be playing lots of good tunes to kick off ths summer right for all of Cape Cod! May we all be peaceful, happy, and prosperous!
