Closing out 2019 with music by the Lofi Sofias and the Conduits. Turn your party lights on.
New Year’s Eve join me for Oms and Eats in the early afternoon – then in the early evening, a porch party with the Conduits – ending just in time for the Pine Cone Drop (or a decent night’s sleep).
This is a reminder to myself – I posted this last week regarding bereavement: Yesterday was strange and uncomfortable, but in the end, I made sure to paint and top it off with song and community. Music is the balm for all of life’s troubles.
“Jenny said when she was just five years old
There was nothing happening at all
Every time she puts on a radio
There was a nothin’ goin’ down at all, not at all
Then one fine mornin’ she puts on a New York station
You know, she couldn’t believe what she heard at all
She started shakin’ to that fine fine music
You know her life was saved by rock ‘n’ roll
Despite all the amputations
You know you could just go out
And dance to a rock ‘n’ roll station
It was alright (it was alright)
Hey baby, you know it was alright (it was alright)”
– Lou Reed

Was there ever a time when imagination and love are not more important than ever?

One of the first bands to captivate my young imagination – I spent countless hours studying the album cover while listening to Candy-O.
David Bowie will forever be in my heart and consciousness.
life is so groovy! dance, dance, dance! and love, love, love!
I firmly believe that fun is essential for our survival and evolution!
Run away from anyone who poo-poos fun. Most definitely run away from anyone who shames you!
Feeling pretty darn lucky! Get outside and enjoy your life.
colors feel like happiness right now
