Warm greetings, dear Friend!
I hope that 2023 is off to a GREAT start for you, and that you’re well and happy.
In honour of the new year and new beginnings, I’m simplifying my newsletter format a bit to make it an easier (and hopefully more enjoyable) read. (Please e-mail me and let me know what you think of the change.)
1) As I wrote last month, I thought that my word/theme for 2023 would be REMEMBER.
As it turns out, the Universe/God/Source has let me know very clearly that my word for this year is INTENTION.
A few weeks ago, my beloved Kim and I shared a ritual in which we shared what we wanted to release from the old year and attract in the new year. I chose to release EXPECTATION, and to attract INTENTION… And ever since, INTENTION keeps showing up in my experience!
2) I continue to musically serve in MANY ways, AND I’m about to embark on a new adventure: being a part of my dear friend Andrea Menard’s theatre production, Rubaboo!
The 10-week run (including rehearsals) begins Feb. 20th and runs until April 30th. I look forward to sharing more with you about the experience in the next couple of newsletters.
3) My INTENTION is to live my FULLEST self expression…
In this moment, that feels like serving the WORLD with music that inspires and heals…
And that intention has led me to saying YES to a week long chanting circle facilitator course in September!
Yesterday – to make sure that this event would be a good “fit” for me – I spoke with Kevin by phone. Over the course of an hour, we enjoyed a deep heart connection, and when the call was over, I experienced a spontaneous release of BIG tears!
If this event interests you, or if you know of anyone who might be interested in it, please spread the word.
How about YOU, dear Friend? What’s most resonating in YOU this month, and what’s YOUR word/theme for 2023? WHEREVER you are on your journey, I’d love to hear from you, and I welcome any and all suggestions for future Morning Musings or whatever else you’d like to share. Please e-mail me; we’re all in this together, and we have much to learn from each other. (THANKS for being a part of my journey, and SPECIAL THANKS to all of the kind souls who respond to my newsletters; reading your comments is always a highlight of my month.)
UPCOMING AND ONGOING EVENTS
I’ve now created 124 chants (!) for my weekly “Morning Musings” broadcast (which you can enjoy via Facebook and YouTube on Wednesday mornings, or any time on my YouTube channel); I continue to serve many churches in both Canada and the U.S. (live, online via streaming, and with pre-recorded videos), as well as many local retirement homes; and I also perform in several local musical groups as a vocalist, bassist, and/or Chapman Stickist.
For more detailed information on any of my performances, please click on any date in my online calendar.

As a very dear and wise friend in Montreal once said to me, “All I can offer you is my experience”.
My sincere desire, in every one of my newsletters, is to encourage us all to live our Big Lives one Small Step at a time.
Much love to you, dear Friend!
May you live YOUR word/theme for 2023 with Ease and Grace and JOY.
Go with Love,
Performing Songwriter / Inspirational Speaker
