7: Shiva 1
Today’s Sabbath Session was recorded during Shiva, the week of mourning following a loved one’s death in the Jewish tradition. My father died on May 31, 2020 following a slow physical and mental decline over the last decade or so. Nonetheless he remained an extraordinary, beloved character to the very last, and his absence has hit me and my family hard. I’d been performing daily Sabbath Sessions live online (you can find them archived on YouTube and Facebook) since the beginning of quarantine, and for me this one was a welcome -and much needed- harmonic break in the clouds. I love you, dad. From you, for you, always. https://www.geraldwedrenmemorial.com

Episode 6 is the first in a series of Sabbath Sessions recorded at home during Covid sequestration.  Since everything went all funny and strange, I've been doing daily performances online;  this is one of my favorites, presented in a clearer, less cluttered context.   Hope it helps XO

5: Phil's 50th-NYE 2020 Pt. 1
Episode 5 is Part 1 of a 2 episode celebration of my pal Phil Hay AND the year 2020,  who happen to share a birthday.  One, Phil, is aging extremely well, with wisdom, grace, and inspiration positively flying off his badself.  The other (2020) is a wildcat, all fire and colors and tantrums and drama and beauty and remains-to-be-scene-i-ness that feel both legitimately freaky and awesome. You decide. Lay back and listen. Take care of yourself and others. Love, Craig

3: Idlewild, Ca. Pt. 3
Part 3 of a 3-part performance that took place in Idlewild, Ca. where my son's school was having it's annual campout.  A whole lotta parents were sprawled on the grass, staring at the sky or at the back of their eyelids, while our children zoomed through the woods on bicycles.  We were all in dire need of a deep dive -some dreamtime to ourselves, untethered from responsibility and relieved of gadgets/fidgets.  On a splendid Saturday in October, we had the chance to unwind and briefly ride the mind's wild waters.  Hopefully you can do the same.
