Progress Report and Invitation 😀

Dear Friends,

Seraphina (my flute) and I have been noticeably quieter this last year and a half as I continue to recover from my little accident. (I fell off my mother’s bed while clipping her toenails and went backwards into a chest of drawers! strange but true!) Although I’m not back to performing yet, I have been enjoying writing at the piano, very much. Bill asked me to collaborate with him on a piece for the jazz festival. It’s called “Lagoon,” and I’d love to share this new piece with you. I’ll be there in the back row probably, with my ear plugs and shades…but feeling very happy! Eventually we’ll get back to the Naturals recording we were working on. Can’t say exactly when. I certainly am learning a lot about the brain though, neuroplasticity and all that. Brains are cool 🙂

Hope to see you on next Sunday, June 25 at the Atrium at the Woodwards Building! Performance is at 5pm!

Be Well,
Holly

Come to the Garden Come to the Sea!

Summer’s first sweet roses are here…with a scent that carries you far away,

or is it far within?

bite into your first shiny purple cherry, slip on a foxglove

watch blue back swifts dip and curve through the amber evening air

see tiny wood ducklings zoom at bugs darting in the air just over their heads

See all the firsts. All the miracles of Summer’s colourful pageant beginning…

What a time to be alive!

I offer you two great shows this Saturday. Come to the Garden, Come to the Sea!

Dino DiNicolo and I will be at 338 E.14th st. North Vancouver 2-4 pm. The whole band will be at the Silk Purse for 7:30 MUST SEE!!!

May 30 2-4 pm

Vancouver Horn Players Blow Away Fog

Fog Horns

The chilly Vancouver fog really is oppressive today
We quiet down like birds at night still stopped waiting
pondering which colour of tea would be most beneficial
green matcha, yellow camomile, red rose. we have all the colours.
you just can’t see them today.

How about this: I invite, entreat, any and all of the wind players in Vancouver to meet at Prospect Point to play today at 2 pm to play improvised communal tones together, to blow the fog away.

weather permitting

Thanksgiving cosy sweaters and Ça Va Trés Bien

Seasons change brings us closer than ever

putting on socks for the first time

that cosy comfort ~ these small sleeping bags for our feet

reach for your favourite sweater,  fine old friend,

here’s my moss coloured second skin now

it begins to sink in

 

as our landscape colours flame up in glory

and the sticky sap sinks down within

We are here

somewhere in the middle

 

Dear Friends,

Michael Creber have been having so much fun at the Café Ça Va. I guess you could say that “The duo

that goes where no duo has gone before!” got a promotion.

We’ll be playing the next two Saturdays , October 18 and 25, instead of Fridays. You are so

warmly invited to join us at this softly sparkling venue, with all the earthly comforts you could possibly

want. Thank you for being you 😉 Thank you for your shining faces! Also this weekend some wonderful

news; scratch DJ, band teacher and extraordinary pianist Jason de Couto will be joining me on the

piano. You can count on an evening filled with magic, mystery, and wit. Come and see us in real life (he’s

much larger) 1860 Marine Drive, across from west van florist. 8:30 – 11pm reservations 604 – 925-

2503, or just drop by 🙂

I Am in Touch with You ~Thanks for Reading…from All Over The World!

I was looking at my site stats yesterday and saw that I have had visitors, from literally all over the world!! thank you!! what a tremendous feeling. When your two favourite things to do are play the flute and write poetry…you could feel that you’re, well, like, obscure. But no…I am in touch with you! So what would you like to see more of here, World? Talk to me: in your language. 🙂 Holly     Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 10.18.25 AM
