Winter SolstiCelebration Coming UP!

I read just the other day that the Winter SolstiCelebration coming up here in Dallas this weekend is the biggest in the nation.  Or maybe even the universe?  I can't remember for sure.  My husband asked me, "Why is this one so big?" and I answered, "Because Amy Martin is awesome and she's been working hard on building this thing for the last 19 years!" Yes, 19 years!  I think it's grown every year, and she has found lots of other very dedicated people that help her plan and run the show each year.

Anyway, not only is it's going to be inspiring!

I've been inspired already as I sat through rehearsals earlier this week.  There are all sorts of great performances-  musicians, poets, dancers, magicians, and even some folks who refer to themselves as "Circus Freaks".

And on this 19th year, I get to join in on the fun and contribute a couple of songs...  The photo below is my friend, Cornell and I rehearsing my song "Balance" just last night.

I also get to perform my song "Sum of All the Parts" immediately following what I think is one of the most beautiful moments of the show!  (But I won't give it away!)

I feel honored to be included as a performer on this very special night.  If you live in or near Dallas, you should definitely get some tickets and come out to see this show.  And if you get your tickets in advance you save a little bit of cash, so get 'em now!  Here's a link to do that: Winter SolstiCelebration 2011
