Today’s cherished Studio Angel is L.S. Thank you from the expanses of my heart for your help in making this overflowingly creative day possible!
Being in Marin County to create is such a rich blessing! The weather is beautiful, the vibe is clear and bright and inspiration abounds. Today’s day in the studio started at around 10:30 after a lovely 5 minute walk from my March digs to Ben’s studio. Ben and I wrote a sweet intro to “Nataraja”. We arranged that tune and then arranged “Cartwheel Galaxy” (wow, wait til you hear the super new ending on this one!) We then moved on to “Sita Ram” and I did my acoustic guitar part to Ben’s absolutely kickin’ beats, bass and keys which he laid down last evening (thanks again to you L.S!). Can’t wait to start the vocals tomorrow.
A few other wonderful things that happened today:
– I had the pleasure of having brief but beautifully resonant interactions with some magical people, namely Teresa, Kenny and Axel (Axel is two years old and while wearing a viking hat sang “Make ’em Laugh” to me with great gusto!)
– I was also serenaded by many joyful birds
– I’ve rediscovered the great benefit of a shot of wheatgrass juice!
– My Mom turned 65!!!
I thought I’d include a photo that shows a snippet of why being here in California is SO inspiring! This is Ben Leinbach, Radanath, Jai Uttal and Manose sound checking before a beautiful kirtan on Saturday night
