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

It is with great joy that I officially release the video for WISE INNOCENCE. Directed by Kevin Lasit and editing/cinematography by Michael F. Dubois.
A little over a week ago I had the pure pleasure of visiting Arizona and doing 2 shows. A house concert in Peoria and a chanting workshop at B Well Center in Scottsdale. Not only did the sun and 90 degree weather soothe my pale winter skin, but the community and opportunity to share my CD with folks that listened deeply was a balm to my soul.
Thank you, thank you to all who made that possible and helped celebrate the one-year anniversary of 2012: ISn’t it Amazing? with such joy (and desert heat).
If you are interested in hosting a House Concert, please CONTACT ME. I would love to come to your town and share the music.
Last weekend I also had the privilege of sharing the stage at The Island Merchant in Hyannis with Allen McGarry and friends on the actual anniversary of the release – 3/22/13. I was a rock star for a moment and Fairy Queen never rocked so hard. WATCH a short clip here.

So here we are. the first new moon of 2013. It’s been an interesting ride hasn’t it? Dec 21, 2012 came and went and here we are. life is just about the same – or is it?
In 2013, I will be blogging consitently on the new and full moon. why? because I LOVE the moon and LOVE the cycles it has and what it teaches me about my own cycles. We are human – a part of nature – and we have cycles.
On Dec. 21, 2012 a 26,000 year old cycle ended and a new one began. This is a scientific fact, not a woo hoo spiritual prophecy. If you believe in science, you must acknowledge how much has changed for Humanity and our planet over the past 30 years and that we (whether we like or not), must change along with it.
Change: this is often a hard thing for us humans. In the Buddhist tradition, we are taught, NOTHING IS PERMANENT. Try telling that to this lingering cough I have had for almost 5 weeks. YES, perhaps like you, I have been navigating life while also having a cold. It has reminded me to rest, go slow, be kind to myself and others and TRUST, that no matter how I feel – physically or emotionally that too will pass. Thank you lingering cough for enlightening me (once again!)
If you are going through changes, experiencing loss, confusion (a lingering cough), or just find yourself feeling like you could use something new, please consider calling upon me through Sounding Still Wellness at our new location right in Barnstable Village. A Rising Star Healing Session, Voice lesson, or Meditation Class could be just what the Doctor ordered.
And as always, I hope to see you at Chat House on the Cape or in some yoga studio for some live musical love. Happy Happy new moon! Create Love. Enjoy this song I recently posted on youtube.
