Mixed Up Seasons, Lots of Fun

It is mid-June, and I slow down to breathe.  My seasons have been somewhat scrambled this year, with preparing the soil, fertilizing, and planting in the winter and seeing the fruit of my labors this spring. 
The Happy Valley Children's Chorus held it's "Songs of Hope" concert in May. Kindergartners through 4th graders learned 9 songs, sang solos, and even choreographed a couple songs for their performance.  I plant the seeds, the children add their sunshine, and a beautiful concert of youth and hope emerges. At the end they all received their yellow caps, and we sang Mama Mac's yellow cap song:
"Wake up in the morning, jump out of bed.
Put my yellow cap on my head.
Makes me feel happy, makes me feel strong.
Makes me want to sing the whole day long.
Got my yellow, yellow, yellow cap! Got my yellow, yellow, yellow cap!"

Also this winter I felt the stirring of a new seed that wanted to be planted. "What if...?" a voice in my head would whisper each morning as a I woke up. Finally I jotted down my ideas, took this photo and sent it to our local community TV station, Amherst Media. I proposed a new children's program, "The Curious Giraffe Show." Having never done anything like this before, they were very supportive, glad to add to their programming for kids.  Thanks to their guidance, their skilled team, and the students training there, the dream came into reality this week!  After months of planning, interviewing kids for the show, filming, and editing, our first three episodes are on the air! They can now be shown via any community TV station or anytime, anywhere by just clicking on these links. Relax and enjoy the show...

I wonder what the summer will hold? 

Oh, yes, well a couple gigs are coming up...perhaps that is the harvest. 
July 4th I'll add family music to the Amherst Farmer's Market in the center of town.
August 15th I will take my "Curious Songs for Curious Kids" program to the Odyssey Bookstore Children's Section in South Hadley, MA. Hope to see you there, and that you will join in the song.

Be strong and be kind is a proverb which makes us charitable and trustworthy. Helping others in the hour of need makes us courageous and strong. To tackle all the problems in our life, we should be kind to others and strong enough.

In general, this challenge is useful for the general population and it is unadulterated excitement.
