A lovely Gershwin Prelude this week, (No. 17). The sun is shining, the sky is a brilliant blue, and the blooms are busting out all over Seattle today!
Cheryl Strayed is the author of Wild, the raw and fascinating autobiography about her solo journey on the the Pacific Crest Trail. I recently picked up Brave Enough by Cheryl, a book of over 100 sassy and inspirational quotes. I highly recommend this little gem for a no nonsense shot of grace and courage!
Two quotes from Cheryl
“You can’t ride to the fair unless you get on the pony.”
“Be about ten times magnanimous than you believe yourself capable of being. Your life will be a hundred times better for it.”
(magnanimous |magˈnanəməs| adjective very generous or forgiving, especially toward a rival or someone less powerful than oneself.)
Heading to Cuba for a two week adventure early next week for The Rhythms of Cuba-a journey packed with drumming, dance, concerts, and cultural exploration. The Yellow House Salon may be interrupted for a couple of episodes, unless I find a way to post from Havana. Rest assured will be a load of Cuban music in the future!
