A couple of years ago Sr.Jane introduced me to a Deva Premal CD and the rest is history. Om mani padme hum has never been the same. But there is more to it. It is the one of the very few musicians I can listen to or rather - my brain will allow as background music. When I am drawing, at peace - chances are it is Deva in the background that helps me achieve my moments of cartooning bliss ;-) . Her music allows me to create and be enhanced and not distracted.
What ever works for you - the thing is I LOVE her music and have an ipod player/speakers in most rooms so my guys are also Deva fans, like it or not! LOL So when I saw the post -
I posted: Going !
BUT it was wishful thinking -I had not yet purchased tickets...
I made a mental note to self - bucket list! It was a few moments later and Storm came up stairs (he lives in his own basement apt.) and said
"MOM book the tickets! My treat!"
I could not believe it! Really!!? He said yes, and we booked 2 right then and there!
ROW G for GRAND-o-riffic! and Georgia.
Then it registered to him, that he is going to see Deva Premal in Toronto.
LOL! With me! I was so happy I was in tears!
I am so excited, I cannot even remember a concert I have wanted to see lately and there it was;-) September is a while off but I have the poster printed in my office and every time I hear one of her songs - I will think
I'M GOING!! I find her music healing.
We don't 'Do' Christmas, holidays hype, buy a gift day... we do: I love you.
I have such a wonderful son, I am reminded constantly by his actions and comments - not just regarding us, but others as well. I know my son loves me but that was just a really amazing level of awesome ;-) What a wonderful way to start my day yesterday.
The rest proved pretty awesome too. I bakes fresh Irish Soda bread and it turned out PERFECT! Bet it would please any Leprechaun ! Then drew and painted...
It was a beautiful day
Now have a look at the Best Irish Soda Bread ever:
