A perfect song for a late, cozy Sunday night. I like to think "Baby" is a nod to one of the greatest soul crooners, Smokey Robinson. The song has some intersting history. You can read about it here.

Baby -  Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti

Sending you lots of love to you and yours this Christmas. May you feel the warmth of the season the whole year through and may peace, joy, love, and hope surround you now and always.


1000 songs,1000 acts,1000 days. What began as a video musicology experiment has morphed into a spiritual journey (the music is my guide).

A new take on a Stevie classic...his music and message are so potent and meaningful, even 40 years later. How is it that a man who never experienced the world visually could be such a visionary and capture the human experience so profoundly?  Stevie's percetiveness and wisdom know no boundaries.

This latest version of this tune takes it a step further and is calling out to those same "children" Stevie was speaking to years ago. This time, I think they are being called to claim their rightful places in the world. Much to ponder and think about.

'One can't contradict gravity'.

When you fall,

Diggs Duke, one of my faves. All of his albums are in heavy rotation at my place, in my car, on my strolls....you get the idea.

Sunday Slow Jam Vol.56

November 24, 2013

It's a glorious day in Vancouver, the sun is shining and the light it casts is perfect, reaching and bittersweet. As we transition from Fall to Winter, Its beauty seems wonderfully precious to me. Early morning and late afternoon light are my favourite times of day, they make everyone and everything lovely. Truly Divine moments that highlight what is possible: innocence and promise.
