The earth's beauty is calling to us right now, this moment, this season.  Let's stop our to-do list long enough to hear the birds, river, ocean, gentle breeze; let's enter into more of a still state to observe the colors, sounds and sights surrounding us.  Every moment we are too much in our minds of whirling endless lists is a missed moment of noticing the symphony of life itself.  Bring yourself on a sound-sight walk, and open your ears to what is naturally all around us.  This is the healing gift you can give yourself and to someone you love.   Accompany your nature focus with a feeling of inner gratefulness for the abundance all around us.  Breathe it all in. The earth and all of its living things is sacred, and the more we take the time to really see, hear and appreciate her with our hearts, the more we can realize on the deepest of levels how important it is to revere Mother Earth, Father Sky.    


Remember the words of Chief Seattle in the 1700's:


This we know.  Teach your children what we have taught our children.  That the earth is our Mother. 

Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. 

If people spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. 

The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth. 

All things are connected, like the blood which unites one family.  All things are connected. 

We did not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it. 

Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. This we know.  ---Chief Seattle

This is my favorite book to read to children and to myself.  It expresses in the most beautiful metaphorical way all there is to appreciate about our earth

Children's Event Testimonial:

We couldn't have made a better choice than having you at our little boy's birthday party. He felt so special that day with all the love and care you put into the show. All the kids were mesmerized by your songs, puppets, stories and the ways you interacted with the audience. It was an absolute pleasure for my husband and myself to get to know you a little more and discover personally the wonderful person you are. We were blown away by your kindness, dedication, attention to details and flexibility to accommodate all our needs.  We felt like you wanted everything to be perfect, just like us, the parents.  Marcel keeps talking about you and wants another birthday party with Cheryl Melody!-Mili and Basil    


Adult Event Testimonial: 

"Your songs and music are so affirming and healing for all of us.  I was looking around at our residents and thinking, "Where do they hear such positive affirmations of who they are"?-Denise
