I don’t know about you, but this was a long winter for us. It’s been so nice to be outside more now, spending time walking in nature, enjoying the blossoms and feeling the renewal that spring offers. May you release that which is not serving. May you plant, nurture, and grow that which is in service of life.
The Embodying Rhythm Marimba Ensemble has been having fun working on new original material and musical ideas and will continue this as a band focus through the spring and early summer (with a couple gigs sprinkled in). Here is a link to a funky & fun new composition, Squeaky Toy Funk, that we got to debut live in March! It features lots of musical squeaky toys and got lots of smiles. youtu.be/9vrVfD3KpAM
Our little one is now a big kid of 5 who can ride a pedal bike through this strange beautiful world we inhabit. We encourage you to keep staying connected to the people you love. Thanks for being you.
