I saw & HEARD Deva and Mitten LIVE and it was a night I won't forget. The best part of the evening of course was the company! My son purchased these tickets - back in January I think!! He wanted to do something special for mothers day and he accomplished it.
Several years ago I was introduced to the music of Deva Premal by a good friend Sr. Jane. I've been hooked ever since! After surgery especially, I try to keep relaxing music in the background and these mantras I find I sing without even realizing.
It calms my brain. Listen for yourself:
We started with Lunch! A quick stop to SAIL for a reel for my fisherman. Then downtown! We had a wonderful meal at an Italian place across the street, again a treat from my son.
It is so nice to have such a fine young man for company- such great conversation. Medicated (twitch somewhat under control) the show began and it was an experience for the eyes and ears and mind. You could not help but smile watching the GURU, Storm commented several times how much he was enjoying the show much to his surprise.
Intermission - outside for a quick puff and Storm had me cracking up!
Back in to see Deva, Mitten, Manose and Maneesh - It was everything I imagined and more. You can't help but feel peace listening to such beauty.
I will say one thing - there was a woman 2 rows in front who filmed much of it on her ipad!
It was a distraction - it was like a TV screen in front of us, and she could not hold still - it was BEYOND rude, and I was not alone - the looks of disgust were obvious but clearly in her selfishness she did not care about those around her.
What is with people? We just tried to ignore her as best as we could and focus on the show.
I am thankful for Cannabis, I was medicated for the first part of both shows I did have a bad attack through part of Deva but I rode it out and just reminded myself to breath!
The twitch did not ruin my evening.
Nothing could have ruined my evening.
I was with my son and that was enough right there.
POPPY - on the other had - it was our FIRST real separation for any amount of time and she was not happy. My hubby said she cried all night! awww... She was so happy to see me when we got home you think I had been gone for a year. If only husbands acted like this at our return lol .
Want to bring yourself some peace today - Listen to Deva and Mitten or The Guru Ganesha Band! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVYylcHszrM Love this song..
