No Kid Hungry

It's hard to believe that 1 in 5 children in America go hungry.
Writing and recording a song about mindful eating has made me more aware of the disparity between those of us who are 'eating mindfully' and those who have none.

How do we help?

Here's a great program:

The Heroine's Journey


It was an honor to play the story drum and accompany Amber Chand on her 'Heroine's Journey' at No. Six Depot where she transformed all who heard her with her riveting  performance.


Amber's performance benefited in part the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers.
