Last night was a special night for me. I was asked by one of my dear friends Natalie Spilger, someone i dearly admire, to perform at a dinner in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California. The dinner was a meeting of the minds where several contemporary leading business CEO's from around the world got together to talk shop. In particular, it featured a celebrated man from the Netherlands named Jos de Blok. A dutchman who has totally transformed nursing all over the country of The Netherlands. This concept that he has implanted into the community of The Netherlands is now being studied and used all over the world more and more. I thought for such a unique audience and interesting group of people I would compose and perform something new, by yours truly. The event was at Plant Food and Wine, a new restaurant on Abbot Kinney and it was such an incredible rush for me to perform something I have been working on for myself. I want to encourage all of my colleagues to try writing, composing, and improvising on their instrument - and taking the next step of performing it when there is an opportunity to do so.
