Some mornings,

I wake up and feel like a Muppet.
Does that happen to you?
Wild hair, someone else’s vocal chords, not quite in control of your own limbs, mouth, or brain waves?

Or… is that…
Same thing.
My particular Muppet character would have bright red dread-locked hair, baby-blue skin, a very triangular nose, comically over-sized ears, and would always be depicted sitting at a bar that serves nothing but exotic smoothies. Smoothies blended up with ingredients like: grass mats, suntan lotion, fresh mint leaves, potato flavored whipped cream, barbie doll shoes, super duper soft bubble gum, and essential oil of orange tree bark.
I think I need to finish my coffee and get on with my day….
Here’s your calendar update!

On another, totally unrelated note: Many of you know and love Paul Honeycutt and have probably heard of his very intense, arduous and scary medical ordeals of late. Tuatha is including a silent auction to benefit Paul as part of their CD release concert at Avo’s, March 2nd. If you have items or services you’d like to donate for this very good man and very good cause, please contact me: (970)227-5275 or



To RSVP for the Jesus stuff, to join the caravan to Zikr, to donate for Paul’s silent auction, or for this morning’s precise coordinates locating the Dalai Lama (I’m sure he’s being tracked), please do call or e-mail me directly.
I hope your morning is proceeding with much greater mental clarity than mine. But if not, and you need a cup of coffee, come on over!


Love and Blessings of a Spring ever so subtly waiting behind a thin blanket of snow!
