I hope that you are enjoying this beautiful spring!!! I am so lucky to have had travelling springs: first in Japan with the wonderful cherry blossoms, then New York spring and the tulip festival in Ottawa and back to Toronto for magnolia blossoms and all the wonderful flowers everywhere!!!
The New York trip was so much fun! I'll tell you more about the recording I did there and how that project unfolds in my year end newsletter. The Sacred Dance workshop and performances were so lovely, always wonderful people and a joy to play for. But one of the highlights of the New York trip was the visit to The Cloisters. If you haven't been I would really recommend it - a beautiful jumble of Medieval chapels, sacred spaces, ancient ruins, amazing art and lots of stained glass.
