Hello everyone,

I write this in the form of a letter hoping that you can sense my letter as a friend. If you are reading this, most likely you are a friend or have the potential to become one. Friends are vital to life aren’t they? Only this morning, just the thought of two of my dearest friends lifted me out of the darkness. This month is an exciting month for me, but at 60, sometimes one wonders if age will interfere with quality. Knowing that I have the support of friends even as I age makes all the difference in the world.

This month, I have two big opportunities. One is that on Wednesday, our library in Watauga County, NC is hosting an important talk about what it means to be Queer in the High Country of Boone, NC. This is a conversation that one can attend in person but also by Zoom. I hope that supportive and loving people can hear the importance of our being aware and open to diversity. Here is the link if you are interested Appalachian Regional Library.

As a musician, one of my lifelong dreams has been to attend the National Women’s Music Festival. Though I still haven’t gotten to be there in person, I’m excited to say that I am going to be performing two songs on the open mic this week that they have opened up because of zoom. Below is a link to the line up of this year’s performers in the festival. The Event area is where I will be singing this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Central time. Come join us as you can. For all of my friends, thank you for always believing in me, even if I couldn’t at times believe in myself.

Peace and Music, Robin

Event

SeekHer7 – Zoom Concert and Open Mic

30-minute Zoom Concert featuring SeekHer7
Natalia Zukerman and Lisa Ferraro have been friends for a long time. Recently, they recognized that collaborating might lead to an elevated force in their creative lives and while still in its nascent stage, their combined efforts are proving to be undeniably powerful, infectiously joyful and deeply connected to Spirit. The collaboration is SeekHer7: collaborative, conscious, collective gatherings with meditation, music, movement, learning, co-creating, deep listening, respectful, safe discovery and above all, boundless joy. Their debut EP is coming out in February 2020 and is called Where We Begin.
