I had two days at home between Hawaii and Jamaica! I had some amazing things happen in those two days. One was, I got to see my friend Jillian ski in the World Cup competition at Deer Valley my home ski area (see her picture below). The other is I got to see my peace advocate hero Michael Franti live in concert!!!!
What a thrill. From 80 degrees in Hawaii to 4 degrees in Park City!!! I was freezing my butt off. Then the music started and Michael had about 10,000 of us dancing like crazy on Main Street! He was freezing up on stage and kept playing!! What an amazing man.
The thing that really impressed me about Michael Franti is the fact that after he attended a yoga class at my friend Lisa’s studio, he stayed and had tea with her and gave her and her husband and friends free passes to his show in Salt Lake City.
I have admired Michael for some time and now finally got to see him. My goal is to meet him and play the HealingDrum with him and his band to further support the cause of peace in the world!!
Here is a couple of my Park City buddies I ran into at the concert! Keili and Jillian.
Here I am with my friends left to right, Jamie, Rich, Marilyn and yours truly
