Brooklyn based MANTRA PERCUSSION performs Michael Gordon's "Timber"

Brooklyn based MANTRA PERCUSSION visited a Lowe’s hardware store in Alexandria, Virginia to perform an excerpt of Michael Gordon’s “Timber” on six two-by-fours. My son-in-law, Jude Traxler, is a member. He is the one (dare I say this) with the green hair. I hope you’ll follow the link and watch and listen to this group of talented musicians. http://www.npr.org/event/music/144920765/mantra-post-minimalist-percussion-in-aisle-12 Shop Amazon – Best Selling Products – Updated Every Hour

My Crazy Life – I’m sorry, I love you, Help me

December 17, 2011 “Did you know the people that are usually the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the three hardest things to say are I love you, I’m sorry, and help me? Sometimes…
