May News From Venice, California

The photo that may still be posted above is of my contribution to Locks of Love that has since been mailed off. 10 inches of hair for a wig for a child going through chemotherapy. That felt good. Thank Harmony Polo for the inspiration and the skill of the cut!

I just posted a video for Mom's Day on YouTube. In fact, I just started my YouTube channel, helenanashlight. More to come. Mama Paris on YouTube

I just produced Bhakti Fest Spring OMmersion in Joshua Tree, California, with the rest of the wonderful Bhakti Fest production team. Another powerful Bhakt Fest event. I sang with Gina Salá and Shantala on Sunday, as well as during the All-Star Kirtan Jam to close the festival.

In addition to my continuing songwriting, guitar playing, singing and some visual art, my creativity has extended in recent months to writing a book with Veronica Gabrielle La Barrie. We expect it to be published by June 1, 2011. "Things To Know About A Course in Miracles, Volume I." It's a book of powerful life tools for all people. It's 108 page-or-less expositions of core life topics with 11 Meditations in the back of the book. I will announce when the book is published, and am very excited that the day is drawing close.

I have been living in Venice, CA for the last year and a half, and am about to embark on at least six weeks of traveling, including time at the Kerrville Folk Festival (where I will visit my tour bus, which still stays on the Quiet Valley Ranch land where the festival takes place).

These and other beautiful evolutions are taking place in my life. So much gratitude, and many, many good wishes for all of you.

In gratitude, harmony, love and light,
