The Dream of 2013:
It is a few hours before midnight 2013. I give thanks for blessings of creativity, love, and connection with tribe and family. So many things happened, that when I write them out here it feels strange. Like a dream, memory is wavy and slippery, so I will recount it here like dreaming…
Winter of last year: I team up with legendary genre bending bass explorers Dave Sharma and Dhruva Ganesan of SubSwara to produce a song for the forthcoming film Dreams of The Last Butterflies. After recording one song, synergy and timing allow us to roll into the process of recording a full length album that is dream come true to create. I post about the incredible process here throughout the year.
Sequoia Emmanuell, who captures the divine in digital. The autumn winds bring the return to Flambeaux Fire’s immersive fire faeire-tale The Calling. Backed by a successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign, we step into a world of fire and song to tell tales from between the worlds. The final event of the season comes in November with the 4th Annual Mermaid Lagoon ocean benefit where we raise over $2,000 for the ocean and orcas in captivity. My heart is filled with hope by what happens when art and compassion meet.
Robert Moss, and learn to bring my experiences from non-ordinary reality to my creations and connections, and carrying back gifts from the otherworld. For the first time in my life I feel truly connected and grounded by practice through awareness, breath, dreaming, movement and song.
The dream memory wavers, and I remember my tribe and loved ones…to all of you who reach out to brush paths with me across the physical and Innerspace of connectivity. Your triumphs of bravery, victory, strength, and devotion to inner spirit, creativity, and love. I thank you for filling me with inspiration, hope, courage, and wonder every day. I am so proud to be a part of this world with you. Thank you for being a part of my everything. May you be blessed in the coming year, and all years after this. May your best dreams come true in 2014.

Legend tells that for one night a year The Mermaid Lagoon is safe for mortal travelers, they ask only that you make an offering to The Sea, and dance with them. It has happened before, and it will happen again. . .
At the 4th annual Mermaid Lagoon Ocean Benefit we will return to our Neverland roots with Peter Pan and Captain Hook at the Red Lotus Room. Come away for an evening of performance, dance, revelry, and song as we dig deep to give back to our oceans. For a second year the Lagoon mermaids have teamed up with Ocean Lifeline, and hope to bring a feminine, artistic edge to the plight of the world ocean and its creatures. Join them as we remember our connection to the sea, and celebrate its enchantment, mystery, and beauty in a glowing lagoon full of dancing mermaids, projected ocean images, and bio-luminescent sea life. This year will be contributing to Orca Network's 'Free Lolita' campaign which hopes to help enact a retirement plan for a very old & lonely orca living in an illegal pool in the Miami Seaquarium. We will also be donating to Our Spaces-an organization dedicated to protecting international waters rich in biodiversity and sea life.
Dress: Inspired by The Sea, Neverland, and all things luminous.
