Kasse Made Diabate! From an old album of his. He just came out with a new one with some heavy hitters; Ballake Sissoko(kora instrument), Vincent Segal(cello), Lansine Kouyate(Balafon), and Badje Tounkara(N'goni). I hope they make their way to S.F. 
Brandon and I got the chance to experience Ballake and Vincent a while back in Santa Cruz. They played so quietly without amplification. It made your ears more keen to listening. You just closed your eyes and took it all in. 

Brandon's also been playing a whole lot of the Blues lately. I appreciate him. To such an exponential degree. For sharing his admiration of music. I don't know of anyone who inspires me more. Will post some inspirational sounds soon.

hit and flower run

 I made the quickest hit and run to and from L.A a couple of weeks back. Took a workshop with some sensational flower women; Brittany Asch of BRRCH and Sophia Moreno-Bunge of Isa Isa. Note to self: do not dare to drive from SF to LA and back. On the same day. Ever again. You will be too tired. You will continuously swerve on the road. You will hate yourself. But it is possible and doable. 

To the Simon Family

A few days ago, I felt the highest privilege. I delivered this family of arrangements for a very special kind. A mother, father, and two daughters. They were recently involved in a most horrific car accident. However the universe chose to go about that accidental day is beyond what any of us could have imagined. The driver they collided with died. But they all lived. Whether through tragic or fortunate events, the untimely beauty of flowers seems to find their way, belonging to them all. I hope these flowers continue to show you that life is truly beautiful. I hope they encourage your strength and continue to heal you all.

"I hide behind the flowers because it's the best kind of self I know." 

On this day, a dear friend of mine went behind her camera and captured me in my element. I hate being the focal point. The center of attention. I hate the vain feeling it brings. Let the work and the flowers speak for themselves, I always tell myself. 

But on this day, I chose to let go and leave my insecurities behind. I finally felt comfortable in my                                     own skin. In who I was and what has become of me and my abilities.

Glady, Thank you for friendship. Always, always, always.
