Making Music

Enjoying the gifts

As I’ve mentioned before, it has been a summer filled with making music.  As a music therapist, I talk about the need for self care with my clients all the time.  Well, I have been practicing what I preach by making time for my musician-self.

This past weekend was a great example of that. Saturday afternoon was summer music made outdoors while neighbors and friends gathered, Saturday night was a gig sharing the stage with some Chicago greats, and Sunday morning was sharing music in the spirit of quiet meditation.  Sunday afternoon I celebrated this by taking a nap and a long walk.  It was a wonderful, wonderful weekend.  Thanks to those friends, family and colleagues who shared it with me.

Namaste.

  1. So glad to hear it! This makes your spirit thrive and is necessary for all that you do. Wish I could have been there!

    • I may be good at self care, but always so bad at self promotion!! Sorry I didn’t let you know about these opportunities my friend!!

  2. Great post! It’s so easy to let go of the things that feed our soul when we are busy with work. Sounds like an incredible weekend.
