JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 253 :: joy is love

15 Sep
{and waffles}

We just returned home from a music festival, waffles, and a lot of love. Tonight, Florence and the Machine lit up the big stage with more than bright lights and sweet songs. She lit up everything with love. Including the audience, asking everyone to hug a stranger. As she said, “I believe in love.”

My sentiment exactly. Love wins. But so do waffles.

Today I learned that joy can be found in a post-concert corner with a waffle shop. Add a little Nutella, strawberries, and bananas for pure joy, and you have the best way to wait for an UBER. 

My feet may be sore but my heart is full of love. Thank you, Florence (and waffles).

What joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 251 :: joy is being in the flow

13 Sep
{ahhhh}

I have been watching Miss Florence as she heads up the coast for the past two days. I have also been prepping for another Miss Florence (and the Machine) which I will fly off to see this weekend.

It makes me think about being in the flow with what you want. One Florence is amazing, the other is anticipated to be highly destructive. 

Maybe Joy is teaching me to choose my Florence wisely.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 298 :: mother nature’s peak performance

27 Oct
Just when I thought the peak performances couldn’t get any bigger around here… we turned a corner on our way home and saw this today:

To which I exclaimed, “Holy Mount Shasta, Batman!”

After the last few weeks of seeing peak performances from the likes of Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rob Bell, Iyanla, and then this weekend watching Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Florence and the Machine, and duets from Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, Neil Young, Tom Jones, Norah Jones, Lukas Nelson, Band of Horses, Brian Wilson, and more rock The Bridge School benefit you would think it couldn’t be outdone.

I didn’t think it could be outdone.

But then the snow capped tip of Mt. Shasta stepped up to remind me of the biggest performance of all.

Mother Nature’s.

Ah, yes. Good reminder my dear.
Thank you.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 297 :: follow your heart line

26 Oct
We just left the Bridge School concert and my cup runneth over. Just amazing.

For the photos and videos check out my Facebook page. It’s all there! Band of Horses, Norah Jones, Tom Jones, Soundgarden, Beach Boys, Florence and The Machine, Pearl Jam, Neil Young.  Whew…..

And it was all for the children. 

I was overcome by the performances, I was brought to tears by the stories. More than anything I am amazed at the power of the heart when it’s put to good use for a good cause.

As we sat in the crowd I watched all walks of life pass by me. Hipsters, hunks, and hippies. From Silicon Valley’s finest to tattooed teeny boppers I witnessed the power of vibration. Of music. Everyone bounced to the beat of Tom Jones. Tom Jones! Everyone. No matter the walk or talk or level of hipness, everyone cheered. The crowd clapped in unison. Everyone was moved.

And it was all for the children.

When Florence and The Machine took the stage the crowds of grunged out Soundgarden and Pearl Jam fans hollored with approval. The man standing behind me admitted to his friend that he ran to Florence’s music that day because he was so impressed from her performance the night before.

As we sat there in a crowd being moved by the music, inside I was moved by the cause of the concert. The children on stage sat behind the musicians. The cameras followed the children throughout the entire show. The musicians took turns shaking the children’s hands.

It was a concert for the children of The Bridge School. And it was amazing.  More than an incredible collection of peak performances, I am moved by the incredible dream and the power of passion and peak performances. And it all starts with following the heart. As Florence + The Machine said: 

Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Cause I am 

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 296 :: amazing grace

26 Oct
Wow. What a concert. This blog post is late but better late than never.

The concert was amazing. The line up was spectacular. And the PERFORMANCES were peak.

Tonight I’m just sharing a little video from Florence and the Machine. There’s nothing like leaving your heart on the stage. Or underwear. Hello Tom Jones. Don’t even ask me about Hunger Strike by Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder. And Neil Young’s Heart of Gold.

Peak. Performance.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
