my holiday greeting: ’14

My Christmas / holiday / solstice greeting for you, sharing a story of the gravitas and beauty of our humanity, from life in San Francisco…to our world. It combines a music track of mine, with some favorite illustration work.

I hope it resonates to you. <3

The music track is from “Christmas in the Ballroom” 2011, with solos by myself, Nicholas Patton, and Gina DiRado. Also featured are Ann Assarsson, Ryan James Brandau, Katie Brennan, Ivy Depner, Matt Peterson, Kathleen Pheneger, and Trond Gilberg on piano.

Illustrations are by Nikki Mclure, Paul Madonna, Barrie Maguire, Paul Bommer, Maggie, Marco Cibola, Mike Brennan, Aline Candido, Cathy Trautmann, Clifford Harper, Artflakes, Tugboat Print Shop, and misc. street artists (Berlin, and elsewhere).

I don’t own the rights to these illustrations, and use them humbly and with great admiration for the artists. This is not for any commercial purpose or broad circulation.

Happy Christmas to you!

Click on the image or link below (and turn up your volume) to enjoy my favorite performance from
Christmas in the Ballroom 2011 (a track off our live CD).

It features our chorale of 9 and pianist in a simple, largely unison arrangement of the Holst classic, by Catherine Bennett. So atmospheric and peace-filled.

The photography is from my february visit to beautiful Telluride, CO.

May you have peace and joy!
