The more old friend/musicians I reconnect with on Facebook, the more I try to remember and find. This past weekend after looking to no avail for the first guitar player I ever worked with, I let it go. Today I received an email from MySpace with a message from him! Now this is a guy I haven’t seen or communicated with in over 30 years. Our very first gig in 1972 was at the Old Port Inn in Avila Beach, California with Doug on electric guitar and me singing through his amp. Ah, the good ol’ days.


Although you can only see pieces of his guitar & a bit of his beautifully long & blond hair behind me, the picture is from a 1973 gig with him (& my bro on drums) at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, the birthplace of my musical career. He painted as well and the fabulous JBL speaker cabinets (de rigueur for the day) reflected his artistry.

Once again the powers of the internet, synchronicity and Godincidences abound. Seek and let it go and enjoy the magic, not always 2 days later but it will come.

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a ramble, dear friends, and this is just a quickie. The link below is a video that I’d forgotten about from our first bathroom skate-dance shoot but found today and posted on YouTube & Facebook. I’m not lip-syncing to one of my tunes, just dancing to one of my all time favorites, the Boyz II Men version of the Isley Brothers classic. No matter the artist, it always grooves me into a little piece of heaven… for the love of you.


Coincidences in my life? I think not. Specifically, my CD will finally be finished within the month, and the synchronicity of very recently reconnecting with so many wonderful musicians, friends, family, artists and very special coworkers from the past on Facebook is no accident or coincidence. As my husband would say, they’re clearly Godincidences. I’m so ready to share my music with the world, and to be able to start with my own beautiful & expanded network first is so extraordinarily perfect. But perhaps it’s not quite so extraordinary and rather simply how it’s supposed to unfold. The making of the CD has taken a year longer than we’d hoped. But apparently God had a different and more effective timeline, albeit admittedly not always effortless for me to accept. However, it seems if you do the work everyday, accept the time frame and then let God do the rest, it’ll be exactly what it’s intended to be.

THE POWERS OF FACEBOOK

Last night I received a friend request with a beautiful apology for a situation from 25 years ago. Today I discovered that a dear music friend from Los Angeles is now living 45 minutes from me in Florida and opening a fabulous jazz club. And I made a new creative, musical friend who loves an old friend of the same ilk. And Tuesday I’m meeting another relocated Angeleno now living down the street whom I haven’t seen in almost 30 years. And more folks from Los Angeles and the last 30 years have found me in the last week than in any other.

After feeling slightly disconnected because of my own migration 8 years ago, the network seems to be growing exponentially and magnificently. Is it something in the facebook air?
