Still failing at regular updates.

I’ve been gardening a lot this last year or so. I moved onto the farm where I was working in Ben Lomond last June and I worked there a few days a week. It’s really more like a humongous garden: a couple acres of terraced hillsides, hoophouses, row crops, raised beds, fruit trees, trellised hops, CSA box variety veggies.. it’s a very special place.

Another large chunk of my time I’ve been spending working for my buddy Covey at Rewild Designs helping to perform all manner of awesome landscape transformations around the Santa Cruz area. We get to work with a lot of native plants, vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and other fun stuff like that.

I have some newish music up at my Green Waves page, and another recording project which I’m very excited about should be up shortly. I had the tremendous pleasure and honor to work with my good friends at Rat Palace Records to record a 4-song EP mostly live and mostly to analog tape, which for me was a dream I’d wanted to realize for most of my career as a musician. I’m very happy with how it’s turned out and can’t wait to get it finished up and available to share.

At the moment I’m living in Santa Barbara for one more month where I am attending a teacher-training from evolation yoga called the HotTT. It is based on Bikram’s 26-posture series and has been a really great experience thus far. Included in this 500-hour training are certifications in Synergy Partner Yoga and Rainbow Kids Yoga, both of which I am very excited about!

If I’ve learned anything this past year it is that we can benefit greatly by letting go of our attachments and living every day to the fullest with love, compassion, and gratitude. Obviously I’m getting pretty into this yoga stuff, but I do really think they are on to something. We are all riding this out together on this spaceship planet and we are all on the same team here, so please just try to be nice to each other and enjoy the ride! I promise I will try to do the same. Until next time, namaste.
