As part of the EarthFest Climate Solutions Showcase, Ed Henderson and I will be performing a concert dedicated to our planet, for the love of the earth.
Saturday, April 18, 4 – 5:30 pm at Empress Acres
For the Love of the Earth
This performance features Ann Mortifee and Ed Henderson on guitar. The Chinese word for Crisis is made up of two characters that mean Danger and Opportunity. We know we are facing an incredibly Dangerous moment in our history. And yet this time is also ripe with a powerful Opportunity to embrace what Quantum Physics might call a Quantum Leap, a shift in Consciousness. Our old ways of being have to be put away. It is essential that we transform Danger into the brilliant Opportunity that it holds. Some say it already is too late. But we say, invisible forces are amassing in support of our vision. Our work is to join them.
