Xmas Party This Wednesday, 12/17
You are cordially invited to join us (Nadine, Jocelyn and Jay) this week, Wednesday, December 17th, at SF’s Red Devil Lounge (on Polk St. Bart's at the corner of Clay in SF) for a hip, hot, holiday shebang, Nadine’s Xmas Special.
1. It will serve as my OFFICIAL book release party and my publisher, Backbeat books will be providing some hors d’oevres for the crowd. Buy a book, signed by your favorite author- WooHoo!
2. It will feature some of today’s most appealing musical talents: PC Munoz and the Amen Corner; Essence; Kingstreet Crossing, and Eli Braden . These talented musicians, all of whom are donating their time, will be playing a cover of their favorite classic San Francisco artist and their own originals.
3. It will benefit a few very worthy charities. Non profits Little Kids Rock (provides free instruments and free instruction including composition to mostly low income public school children -- littlekidsrock.org ; Good Samaritan Family Resources( helps immigrant families, access needed services, stabilize in this country, develop self-sufficiency and participate constructively in the community -- goodsamfrc.org) and SVdP's Catherine's Center (a transitional house of safety and dignity for women leaving jail or prison -- firstname.lastname@example.org) will each be represented with information and reps who will answer your questions and take your donations.
4. It will be so much fun (admission is free!). We deliberately left off a door charge so you can afford to party down a bit with your friends, listen to some great music, AND donate a few dollars to these worthy non profits. Please come with a carefree attitude but a giving heart. (oh…and maybe buy a book!)
Stay cool brothers and sisters, and see you there!

Mercury Retrograde and The Real Spirit of Christmas
Mercury Retrograde was an early Xmas gift, as I was without a website or email for the last five days. I learned patience (sort of) and got to see/do some things I would have normally been too distracted to notice. Expect delays in travel and miscommunication to run rampant through this Holiday Season. Remember to be patient, breathe deeply, tell the truth and look at situations with new eyes (called humor).
Keep safe my friends and remember …the real spirit of Christmas is a soulful one.May God bless each and every one of you with true peace of mind, body and spirit this holiday.
