Taking part of the project Dailybell by Brenda Hutchinson, CoroDelantal and Coro Fulbright of Madrid gather to ring our bells celebrating solstices and equinoxes during the 3 minutes that the sunset lasts at Debod’s Temple in Madrid.

the final sunset of the year

December 31, 2017. Sunset 4:42 PM.
Flemington, NJ.

The empty halls and beds are not as bleak as they may seem at first glance. Everyone that could move was at a little party at the end of the hall, including my father, who was the only guy in the room. Festive and sweet.

Observing this Winter Solstice

December 21, 2017. Sunrise 7:16 AM.
Brooklyn, NY.

Cold blast first thing in the morning on the darkest day of the year. Tomorrow will be less dark for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere (at least as far as the sun is concerned). Blessings and hope to all as our days ahead expand into the light in every possible way.

Smoky Sunset by the Sea

October 12, 2017. Sunset 6:37 PM
Sunset Blvd. San Francisco

Driving home from work with the smoky sunset over the ocean out the side window of my car. The air here is so bad we wear masks inside the house. And we are the lucky ones. Sending love and condolences to everyone up north who has suffered such loss and devastation.

Goodbye Nick

August 12, 2017. Sunset 8:04 PM.
Berkeley, CA.

After an afternoon of stories, songs and incredible tenderness, we all say goodbye to Nick Bertoni. Anyone who knew Nick might not recognize the super cleared up Tinkers Workshop where we are gathered. I count myself among those who were honored to have spent time with Nick and were touched by his generosity and huge heart.
