Yesterday morning, after dropping my other half off at the airport, I stopped at Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary to enjoy the sunrise and check out the overwintering shorebirds. With its views of the San Francisco Bay, city skyline and abundant bird life, the sliver of a trail along a salt marsh is one of my favorite places in Alameda. It was a stunningly beautiful morning, filled with light and birdsong, that left me feeling energized and inspired for the rest of the day ...and thankful to the sanctuary's namesake, whose attention and activism resulted in this bit of land and habitat being preserved. I was reminded again how the actions of one single person can impact many lives, current and future. I promptly went home and filled out my vote-by-mail ballot. Now, more than ever, I encourage you to stand up for what you love and believe in and use your voice. There is no time like the present to make a difference...
And to celebrate the good in the world! I'm happy I get to further extol the beauty of where I live by singing tomorrow during part 6 of Rhythmix’ Love Our Island Art Walk Series, fittingly themed "Radical Beauty." I'll be performing a variety of DC and Bay Station songs. Come find me!
Speaking of Bay Station, Saturday, the full band is in Petaluma at Lagunitas Taproom, a great place to kick back on a fall afternoon....we'd love to play for you. xoxo, Deborah
