Summer highlights of music and beauty

Last night, Sarah organized an amazing concert at the Bering Sea Bar, where she debuted her new songs for a new album. She is a musical genius with amazing folk songs, songs about love and life and being a mom, and if that isn’t enough, she even performed a beautiful Africa-flavored song. She played with Karl, also a musical genius, who just recorded Sarah’s next album. can’t wait till it comes out!

Beautiful trumpet addition (Erin Forton’s dad. Erin who owns the Bering Tea Co. So much talent in one family!)

Yes! I love this crew so much! There was talk of recording all the Nome artists in a Nomemade album. That would be so delightful with all the talent here. :)


In other Summer stories, I had my first dip in the breathtakingly cold, refreshing Bering Sea!

Peace Is Every Step

Peace is every step
The shining red sun is my heart.
Each flower smiles with me.
How green, how fresh all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every step.
It turns the endless path to joy.
