Hope this email finds you well and happy or at least not stressing about things you cannot control. Keep sending those cards, letters and calls to our elected representatives. They do need feedback! Besides, it makes you feel as if you at least tried. At times like these, I go to the Serenity Prayer or to one of my favorite Dalai Lama quotes: "If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it's not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever."
Dalai Lama XIV
If you are in the Mill Valley area and looking for something to do on Saturday, February 18th, Head on over to the Throckmorton for the Mill Valley Music's 9th anniversary show. I'm joining the All Stars for a couple of tunes.
We are performing The Last Waltz, so I'll be digging deep for Mavis' parts in "The Weight" and Levon's licks in "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."
If last night's rehearsal is any indication, we are all in for a treat. Such great tunes and nice people.
Jeffrey Halford is also a special guest and I'm sure I'm leaving someone out. Apologies in advance if that is the case.
Mill Valley Music All Stars are Gary Scheunstuhl, Austin DeLone, Don Zimmer, Neal McDonald, Jesse Kincaid, Cole and Mikki Tate.
And of course, we have the Marinfidels rockin' classically in the first set.
Hope you can join us.
