Music & Other Gems Apr 21 – 26, 2018 – (inter)Connection & Relationship

NOTE: It was brought to my attention that these words were not spoken by Chief Seattle. From Snopes.com “The words Chief Seattle has become famous for were written by Ted Perry, the screenwriter for Home, a 1972 film about ecology. They have since been widely quoted in books, on TV, and from the pulpit. A children’s book, Brother Eagle, Sister Sky: A Message From Chief Seattle, sold 280,000 within the first six months of its 1991 issue.” My feeling is that whoever said them, they are true and it’s bogus to attribute them to a Native American.

Connections and relationships are everywhere. As we move through our days, we are in connection with everything — our bodies, our movement, our thoughts, objects around us, other people, the environment — everything. The invitation is to open our awareness so that we recognize all these (inter) connections and making choices about what we want to bring to all of our relationships.

Speaking of relationships, I’m grateful for mine with Mary Linn. I love the chance to teach and create together and I’m grateful for her generosity in sharing her classes and her gifts. (We’ll be playing again in May so check that out below!)

You can find this week’s (inter)Connection & Relationship playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

But first, here are a bundle of things I know you want to know about:
