A beautiful day making music in Silver Lake ~ award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Clarke played at the family FUNdraiser The Hunt at the Silver Lake Independent JCC along with kids music favorite Peanut, brother-sister duo Micah & Mazie, JCC alumni band the amazing Finn Brothers, and all sorts of arts & crafts led by Judith Jenkins, a scavenger hunt, book signing by author award-winning author Deanna Neil, and more. Plus, a sneak peak at the Projection LA art installation at the old Sunset Pacific Motel (aka Bates Motel) across the street. Spring has sprung ~ look for more music performances by Amy in LA soon…and more Gaia Grove collective collaborations 🙂 Request to join the FB Group: Gaia Grove

Hello dear ones,
After a full day out in community since 9AM, my beautiful daughter is napping. I am pausing before heading out to the piano to create music in the garden to reflect upon the fullness from this day.
I love Silver Lake.
I feel at home here. Connected and complete, encircled by community. While the ride has been full of peaks & valleys, I have learned more in my time of service than I might have imagined; and not even lessons I thought they might be.
Serving the neighborhood has greatly inspired me, humbled me, transformed me. As an artist and a musician, it can be a challenge to find the right balance to do both, but it IS possible & inspires GREATER art; the more one is able to tap into the spirit of a place, listen to those in community, unite with tribe, redefine local family, grow from the ground up. It infuses my art, music, expression, passion, pride.
I also have deepened bonds, connections & groundwork ~ it only makes natural sense for Gaia Grove to be centered here in Silver Lake as well. And, since like in gardening, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it ~ Quod Severis Metes (As You Sow, So You Shall Reap) ~ I am grateful to serve the community in which I live.
This is my original home from whence I landed from thousands of miles away, many years ago; this place welcomed me, nourished me, gave me sustenance. I love it here, and I listen to the people I BOTH live with and share with in community.
I am running again for Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, as an At-Large Representative for YOU, Silver Lake, and for future of all together, though, recognizing that I serve you, I humbly ask for your vote SAT APR 12, 2014, 10am-4pm, Micheltorena School, Silver Lake, but also, and more importantly, your vision. Please message me and share your ideas, your dreams, your possibilities for our shared space and let’s co-create it!
