Joy In Our Hearts

Dear Friends, Fans & Family....
 
We were just beginning to get into the Holiday spirit when we ran across this private moment between two of our favorite people.

Surprise! Maybe the heart knows no boundaries.

 
We are heading into that lovely hectic and festive season that integrates light and dark, giving and receiving, friends and family, Thanksgiving and Christmas, Hanukkah and Winter Solstice, and everything in between. We don't feel like we have to choose one to the exclusion of the others.
 
There is a time and a place for razor-sharp critical thinking, intelligent intellectual discernment, and focused active commitment to a particular point of view. Like, in politics, for example. But when it comes to Joy and Kindness and Good Humor, we say celebrate it wherever you can find it, hearts wide open.
 
So we will admit to loving jingle bells and snowy nights, and angels we have heard on high...Handel's Messiah, Nat King Cole and Mel Tormé, with twinkle lights and chestnuts roasting on an open fire right next to the Blessed Babe in the manger. We love the Wise Men and beautiful Mother Mary, and don't find it at all hard to also include Deck the Halls and mistletoe and all those wonderful Celtic carols, fa la la.

We love the gentle animals in the nativity scene, although it is a little hard to imagine the camels from Nazareth hanging out with Santa's reindeer. But it is a magical season of generosity and gracious too-muchness, and anything can happen. We know people who light the candles on the menorah and put up a Christmas tree too, because they can, and because it makes everybody happy.

 
According to renegade quantum physicists and wise spiritual teachers, we live in an inclusive universe which thrives on mystery, paradox, and the integration of opposites. So, maybe we don't have to limit ourselves to a rigid "Either/Or" mentality. We can choose to live in "Both/And." Or even better yet, "All of the Above."
 

Starting today we are offering all our CDs for sale at a 25% discount through the end of December. Great stocking stuffers, just sayin'. Click here for details.
 
And if any of you happen to be in the Aspen area on December 21, please join us for our 27th annual Winter Solstice Concert. Details here.
 
In the meantime, we give you "Joy in Our Hearts," written by JD & Karen Drucker, from our Holiday album "All These Gifts."

         Peace for the season, Love every moment
         Light shines wherever we are
         Faith in the darkness, Hope in the silence
         JOY (joy joy joy) in our hearts


Love from Jan & JD
