Little 1 – Heartbeats Mix


2015 March 15: added Milena’s sonogram of Kinich’s heartbeat in her womb, and little Sophia greeting me at the end. Also, added a gentle, subtle beat (kick, snare, two rides).

Raga Aire


I found myself singing this melody after listening (several times) to Craig Pruess & Dya Singh’s album “Sacred Chants of the Sikhs,” in which Singh sings the most beautiful, powerful melodies.

Tamara Jo Cortez’ new book, Flow Notes (E-book version reviewed, available at Balboa Press or Amazon) may at first glance seem a sweet, simple collection of positive affirmations.

Surging Toward Oneness


Surging toward Oneness; toward the reunification of all that I am, and all I am yet to be, simultaneously; no less me than I am now.
