...to my online home.

For me, Home is a place, and also a feeling - a deep and rich one which I've sought time and again in my music and lyrics.

So, please come on in and make yourself at home. I'm so glad you are here. I'll do my best to keep you up-to-date with the happenings in my life and share with you those things that continue to interest me.

Maybe I'll see you here, or out there on the road, but I do hope I see you. And do stay in touch, if you're so inclined. We are, after all, in this together.

From Cris --- Solstice --- Most poets will tell us that paying attention is the fee that is required as human beings. It seems a small price to pay as we go, this paying attention. Attention is what we have to give as we live. And so we look up and pay attention to the moon and the stars. We look down and around at the changing world of ours. Our ancestors did the same, but possibly for different and deeper reasons. It told them, as it tells us, where we are in relationship to the natural world. It helped them, as it can help us, to navigate from one place, one season, one year to another. Our days are measured.

We are approaching Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. For hours and hours the sunlight will remain and sustain us. In the northern climes, people will play midnight games and their gardens will grow enormous vegetables. Then, as always, we move toward the Winter Solstice, the next mark, and we begin to measure the lessening of the precious light and become more acquainted with the night. Each thing offers balance, an ebb and flow, a filling and an emptying, again and again. Our lives reflect this same push/pull as the world in which we live. We, like our ancestors, feel a part of our world, sacred in its simple and elegant design, and we… no more…no less.


So says the Media ...

Going Her Own Way by Steve Desroches  Taking a stand, particularly for oneself, can be a hard thing to do. Moments of true independence can be difficult to maintain. Of course no one exists in a vacuum and community is important, even vital, particularly in the arts.
