Happy Holidays....

Dear Friends, Fans & Family....

Two important announcements: 
 
1. All our music is on sale through Christmas Day. We are offering 20% off our entire catalogue: CDs, sheet music, even our songbook.  We hope this can make your Holiday shopping quicker and easier.  We are happy to sign and send gift cards along with your order if you purchase by Dec. 15.
 
2. Timelessness Alert:  It’s snowing today in Colorado. Big Snow, Powder day on the slopes, 12” and counting at our house, and it’s supposed to continue snowing all day. The roads are treacherous. Schools and libraries are closed. Snow day! All the kids and skiers are ecstatic.
 
It’s as if by magic, because of this benevolent storm, everything now has permission to stop.  We decide maybe we don’t need to make that trip into town after all.  Suddenly the day takes on a new shape. Time opens up. We can exhale.
 
Funny how JD and I always seem to have an important list going: Things to do, places to go, people to be. This morning we were feeling pressured and a little irritated about how much we had to accomplish in our self-imposed limited time frame.  And now, because of the snow, the picture has widened, and time has expanded. All the sharp edges are visibly softened as we look outside into this beautiful silent white world. We are voluntarily giving up our best-laid plans, and entering gratefully into a timeless space where…surprise! Anything can happen.
 

It’s easy to get caught up in the compelling conviction that you have to chase around at breakneck speed to keep up with the world. And that if you don’t text and tweet and check your email every 3 minutes you might miss something urgently important: Like, a new diet scheme from Dr. Oz, or how you could be dating Russian beauties. Really? Do you even care what the work “twerk” means?
 
Maybe you don’t live in a place that has snowstorms.  Maybe you have to fly out of bed and punch a time clock, or show up in a classroom, or a hospital, or a shop regardless of the weather or your current attitude. Everybody has to make a living, after all, and it seems we all have people depending on us. But maybe now, especially as the Holiday season starts to ramp up, we can all take a moment to find the silent spacious place of possibility which is always available on the inside….declare our own snow day, even if just for a few minutes, and remember how lucky we are to be alive. And then walk out into the world silently beaming that message as a gift to all. Joy to the world!
 
JD and I want to gift you with a song off our Winter Songs CD, Beyond Faith.  It is a classic love song that can be felt as a romantic ballad, but also a poem of gratitude to all the intimate people in our lives, past present and future.

Love from Jan & JD
