Hey! Happy day of Thanks. I have so much to be thankful for! Dear friends, old and new, healthy family, fun life…
I visited with my sister Margaret Nolan in Orlando, Fl for 11/11/11, and Gogol Bordello at The Orlando Calling. What big Sorcery from Eugene Hutz! Elizabeth Chi-Wei-Sun (GBs dan er- vocalist) was fun to hang with and chat about herbal medicine at the Sheraton later that day.
I was inspired to come home and work on some more choreography to Gogol Bordello after that “Alcohol” has become a different solo piece….
Now, back home, focus is family, Urban Artists Intentional Community and Turkey Day. Im also developing my private herbal consultation practice so things are busy. Im mentored by some of the finest minds in our community through the Appalachian school of Holistic herbalism … and that is something to be thankful for indeed.
The Urban Artists Intentional Community has been blessed with new members. Timothy Wilkinson and beautiful Sarah Noel. Cool ans sooo sweeeet! Lets find them jobs in Asheville! Timothy can build and fix anything. Sarah is most gracious and smart. She loves to serve.
Wow! My Companjeros have finally pulled up in their caravan of tricked out biofuel, solar powered busses for a visit to my town.
Dear Michael the road chef, Thomas “Clever” Lewellen and sweet Emma welcomed me as “guest mayor” of Eco-Opolis, one of the interactive permaculture and sustainable-living teaching games in their Conscious Carnival. What fun!
Later, Gypsy took the cook on the witches tour of our little town. More fun!
She sent him back to the bus in time to and make oatmeal for the crew and distribute Slippery Gypsy Aphrodisiac Mustache Wax and Gypsy Punk ( Gogol Bordello style) to all.
By Spring, Gypsy will be right behind you Sustainable Living Road Show Warriors!!! Here comes the Puja Eyes Medicine Show! !
Happy Samhain ( a little belated, I know) but the veil between ourselves and our beloveds who have crossed the border … ( the BIG one!) … is still thin.
We lit a fire during the first Critical Response Salon of The Urban Artists Collective .
It was a creative flame first when I (Monica Nolan) performed a choreographed and improv movement original work to Gogol Bordello’s “Alcohol”.
See it on YouTube under PujaEyesTV!
Then we lit a fire in the fireplace/ altar and sang and spoke lovingly to and about folks who are on the other side.
David Flander presented a short film and got a little feedback before we adjourned.
We’ll be meeting every Sunday from 6-9 and doing Critical Response Salons once a month.
Check the calendar on http://www.pujaeyes.com and come!
Most sane folk would have gone to bed after all that….but were talkin bout me ….
Had to go check out Sirius B!
Great Cabaret band with electric violin and chello that will break your heart open!!!
Who needs sleep when there is music?
