Victoria Theodore November Performances

"So dull and dark are the November days.
The lazy mist high up the evening curled,
And now the morn quite hides in smoke and haze;
The place we occupy seems all the world"
– John Clare, November

Hello Friends,

A few days ago, someone sent me one of those lovely excuses to procrastinate: a quiz asking me to name a place I'd rather be in this moment. The phrase from the above poem "the place occupy seems all the world" resonated strongly with me, simply because I'm content to be where I am...wherever that may be! I can't say that I've always had this perspective, but time, experience, wisdom has brought me here. It's all good! I hope that wherever you may be (physically, emotionally, financially, etc.) is beautiful, exactly what you need in this moment, that you perceive it as such, and that it will lead to even greater levels of good, joy and happiness for you!

I recently returned home from another fabulous tour with the legendary Stevie Wonder. One of the performances was for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert, which will air on HBO on Sunday, November 29, 2009. Two nights of concerts were filmed, including performances by Stevie Wonder, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Aretha Franklin, and many others. During Stevie's set, the band had the opportunity to accompany Smokey Robinson, Jeff Beck, John Legend, B. B. King and Sting!
