WHEN TIME EXPANDS – Part 1

WHEN TIME EXPANDS – Part 1

Have you ever noticed that when you are doing something you love how time seems to expand? In some cases maybe even stand still? Well, that is what occurred for me last weekend when I performed at the beautiful Cabaret Jazz Room at Las Vegas’s Performing Arts Center, The Smith Center. (If you are ever in Las Vegas you MUST do yourself a favor and attend one of the magnificent productions presented in this great venue http://www.thesmithcenter.com)

Last Friday and Saturday evening I reprised my show “Already Home” (by Marc Cohen). Joining me for this return engagement was my musical director, Jeffrey Neiman (piano/keyboards/vocals), Pascale Ellia (vocals/percussion), Joe Spraker (keyboard/vocals), Keith Nelson, (bass), Jess Gopen (drums), and John Wedemyer (guitar/vocals). These six musicians are some of the best in the business. It is a joy and an inspiration to work with them. In addition to several songs we performed previously we added six new songs to explore and add to the evening.

The gift of collaboration is profound. In music this exchange of creative energy is especially clear as each instrument adds it’s own unique flavor to the song bringing out specific emotions.

WHEN TIME EXPANDS – Part 2

WHEN TIME EXPANDS – Part 2

To say that everyone was “on his or her game” would be an understatement. Not only was the band locked in but all the other elements fell into place as well, lights, sound and great audiences. It was like we were all connected through the music and the moment and time stood still. I had this delicious realization that, in that moment, there was no place else to be and nothing else to be doing. All that existed was the “NOW” moment. It was freeing and expansive. I had an overwhelming knowledge that I was exactly where God wanted me to be, doing exactly what God wanted me to do…sing. I am so grateful to the musicians, The Smith Center and all the beautiful souls who came out to support and share their time. I look forward to more “moments” and I wish for all of you the heavenly experience of KNOWING you are in exactly the perfect place at the perfect time weather it’s walking the dog, doing the dishes or any of the everyday, extraordinary activities that make up the days of our lives. The gift is in the PRESENT and as my Mom always said to me, “Susan, that’s why it’s called the PRESENT!!!! So, open your gift each and every moment of each and every day!

LOVE,
