angus and julia stone.

lately, i've been in major need of a 'serious' pick-me-up.
something to take me away for awhile.
something to groove to.
something to dance to.
something to smile to.
adele is one of my very, very favorites, 
can't tell you how many times 
I've listened to this song and this song,
but lately her music 
has been touching my heart too deeply,
usually bringing tears to my eyes.

so, i needed something new to listen to...and then, 
coincidently, yesterday, my very cool friend, 
Andrew, introduced me to Angus and Julia Stone, 
and i simply can't stop listening to them,
they're  a brother and sister duo, and amazingly talented. 

these two songs and videos are my favorite 
{so far}.
{i adore the elephant and the harmonica}

i equally love both their voices. 
their lyrics speak to me, 
very fitting for where i am in my life at the moment.

what's touching your heart these days?

Summer School. Green Flash Creative Workshops.

I love the girls at Green Flash, 
two sisters with a giving spirit and a uber 'happening' art gallery 
that also serves time as an incredible yoga studio 
and regular summer hang-out for music, bbq's and surf flicks...

did I mention it has an ocean view 
and is just steps from one of the 
prettiest beaches in San Diego, Cardiff-by-the-Sea? 

This summer they have something else to add to their calendar of events;
for kids by artist Susan Wickstrand, Seascape Oil Painting Adult classes by Wade Koniakowsky, Photo Journalism classes for teens taught by Micaela Malmi and Todd LeVeck and Beginning Jewelry Wire Wrap Workshops taught by me. I am so excited to do this! Best part of all,  my daughter, Mikaela, will be assisting me {one of many summer jobs for her}.  Summer school!

live in love.
