Proposed Next Group Date- June 8th, 2014

Despite the fact that it was really really cold this morning, Central Park is showing signs that Spring is actually on the way.

 

The three pictures above show the brave efforts of the crocuses to emerge through the debris of fall and the mulch of winter.

 

 

I can’t resist mentioning that like the crocuses’ absolute determination to fully emerge and bloom, so it is with we humans who  ( regardless of what our thinking minds say and our self judgements deny)  are all on the path to our full emergence and bloom whether we are aware of it or not.

 

Those of us who are aware and have been clearing the mulch and the leaves of our past entanglements in the dream some call reality-  merely are making it easier for all humanity and creation on this planet to burst free along with us.

 

That said , we look forward to the lovely warm June breezes that we will  be enjoying when our next Group happens.

 

The proposed date for Group is Sunday, June the 8th. You all know the drill– if  at least four people commit to coming on that date, then I will announce that Group will be happening in June 2014.

 

Please let us all know ASAP because time is really accelerating and June will be here shortly.

 

Sending you all lots of love,

P.S. My Personal Good News Tonight

The second piece of good news that I couldn’t add to the previous post is that  I have finished planing all of my plants. In addition to the two window boxes against the rail, there are about 140 containers that are waiting for me to arrange them into the many tiers of the garden. On the bottom of this paragraph are two pictures of the containers waiting to be arranged and three pictures that can give you a sense of the fully appareled trees in Central Park last Friday.

More Jazz And Spring Progresses in Central Park & My New York City Garden

I just can’t resist sharing with you pictorial updates of the lilacs, flowers and trees in Central Park, the wisteria on an East 70th Street . These pictures were taken while I was walking on May 3rd.

Check out the photo of the back of a man walking his cat on a leash through Central Park. You’ve gotta think that this could only be seen in New York City!

Included in the sideshow is an update of my garden in progress. You can see the whole palette that I have to work with to create my piece of paradise along with the first big containers I planted.

Finally,  jazz fan that I am, I went to Smoke Jazz Club again for a really special evening on Saturday night.

The Renee Rosner Quartet was performing lyrical, balanced, beautiful music. Renee was the pianist along with  my absolute favorite drummer Lewis Nash, the great Peter Washington on bass and Steve Nelson on the vibraphone.

In the recent past I had heard the same quartet minus Peter Washington perform at Dizzie’s. There was a real difference in the performance on Saturday night.

Smoke’s stage is miniscule in comparison to Dizzie’s and in this venue there was a perfect blending of the sounds of each instrument. At Dizzie’s the vibraphone sound seemed dominant much of the time when Nelson was a part of the song.

To make a perfect set even more enjoyable,  to my delight the greatest of all bass players, Sir Ron Carter,  came to have dinner and to enjoy the set as a part of his birthday celebration. He and his wife sat one table away from where I was so you can see his profile in my picture . I had seen him perform last year on his birthday at Dizzie’s!

If only I could capture the sounds of this night for you.  Enjoy!
