DearĀ Friend


šŸŒ¹ šŸŽ¶Ā Boost Your Winter SparkleĀ šŸŽ¶Ā šŸŒ¹

December GreetingsĀ from Frosty London!Ā 
December here in London involvesĀ discerning what is truly sparkly amidst theĀ tangled tinsel tat andĀ knottyĀ knarled roots of midwinter.Ā  Staying tuned to authenticĀ simple joys -Ā Ā companionship, laughter,Ā warming food andĀ singing - canĀ helpĀ keepĀ spiritsĀ bright amidst the seasonal clamour.

To that end, I warmly invite you to come and sparkleĀ with us at:
šŸŒ¹ šŸŽ¶Ā Winter SparkleĀ Magical Midwinter ConcertĀ onĀ Sunday 10th December
Songs from the heart of community to soothe, uplift and inspire
- Doors openĀ 2pm for 2.30pm @ St Johns SE19 2RX
There will be tea and cake!! -Ā tickets

šŸŒ¹ šŸŽ¶Ā  Heartfelt thanksĀ to the crew and friendsĀ who voyaged
Across the LinesĀ with Randolph Matthews and myself at ourĀ  CroydonitesĀ performance.Ā We are so grateful for yourĀ generous support
and are reflecting on next steps.




šŸŒ¹ šŸŽ¶Ā Boost Your Winter SparkleĀ šŸŽ¶Ā šŸŒ¹
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
J.R.R. Tolkein - The Fellowship of the Ring

Life is full of paradox - bright shiny things can oft be mirages and that which truly brings us joyĀ often comes in unlikely packaging.Ā Ā As we move throughĀ the seasons of life we face theĀ passing into shadow of that which was onceĀ bright and the sudden shooting ofĀ starsĀ across darkened skies.Ā 

Ā It takes patience,Ā perseverance and presenceĀ to alchemise the gold of life.Ā  Ā Wintry gifts present themselves as we become present to the magic of frosted cobwebs icingĀ window ledges orĀ the flickering flame of a fox's tail disappearing into the mist.Ā Seasonal solace may be foundĀ in theĀ pages of good book or a spontaneous chat with a stranger in the post office queue.Ā Ā 

The trueĀ diamonds of midwinter often lie deep beneath the superficial razzle-dazzle.Ā Catalysing the hidden sparks from winteryĀ lessonsĀ and griefsĀ can sharpenĀ our understanding of the precious fragility of life.Ā  Ā Startling wake-up calls may jolt us into awareness of painfulĀ truths beyond glittering facades. We may need toĀ faceĀ down our monsters, befriend our fearsĀ and danceĀ with the skeletons in the closet.Ā  Whilst the blows of winterā€™s anvil may be harsh, theyĀ spark new life and deeperĀ understandings.

To gift ourselves authentic joy often requires saying no toĀ conditioned conformity. As mischievous spritely Jack Frost decorates ourĀ window panes with new patterns, embracing a playful approachĀ can invigorate profound shifts of perspective.Ā  Jettisoning ourselves out of the familiar - going a different way to work, singing a new song, getting a haircut or clearing the clutter - can leave us bristling with a new brightness.Ā  Winter's fierceĀ retreat invites us to detach from what we have been conditioned to crave,Ā and voyage deeper to find what truly makes us sparkle.

Wishing you the sparkle of theĀ extraordinary in the ordinary, the magic in each momentĀ andĀ lots of super sparkly singing!Ā Ā Ā Ā 

Look forward to seeingĀ and singing with you soonĀ 

Be well,Ā breathe deep and keep singingĀ loudly!
