Almost 2017...

 

Hello

Thought I would shout out to the world for happy holidays and I hope 2017 brings many good things and feelings into your life. So... Here in the United States we have a new president elect and he wasn't elected by the majority of citizens. Pretty sad state of affairs as far as I can tell. Watching my public TV channel, it looks like he has nominated a lot of guys from Goldman Sachs, the famous company that went bankrupt after they bankrupted the country. Well... I guess all those 49% of Americans who did not vote will actually get to see what their inaction produces... well.... enough about politix...... I'm sure you've had quite enough anyway....

back to jazz!

I just finished my 12th year of singing with Betty Liste and her trio at The Stony Hill Inn in Hackensack, NJ. It has been quite a run. We have seen so many people come and go, and I mean that literally. The music we play encompasses tunes from the 20's to 2017. The food is great, and I notice that most everyone ends up taking some home with them. It's Italian American cuisine with fine wines and good service and live music for dancing (that's us)... what could be better!  Also, thanks to Lisa Nobumoto and her Nobumoto Entertainment Group, I just started a once a month gig at Farafina's uptown in Sugar Hill, Harlem. Food is excellent and the jazz is real. I had the opportunity to work with some great rhythm sections and it's been so much fun to finally be able to just sing, sing, sing. Check out the FARAFINA website here: http://www.farafina

 

2016 Year of The Fire Monkey

 

Thinking of Valentines Day today and wishing the joy of a happy heart to you dear reader. In whatever way it comes to you having a happy heart can really keep things in perspective. Think of all the stress you won't have!  This year starts the 11th year with Betty Liste at the Stony Hill Inn. There have been so many beautiful nights there. Over the years we've seen our loyal fans dance and have fun and we've seen the faces change. So many people have left us and new people come in and the cycle starts all over again. That is quite a perspective and I think of the many people who aren't on the planet anymore and how special each and every one was. What a gift to have that experience.  

 

Just put up new videos! check in the VIDEO section!

 

Spring 2014 has officially Spring....

Hello! So much going on for me... Doing music, poetry, facepainting, videos, henna... just moving forward and doing, doing, doing.... not a whole lot of being, being, being......

I remember the days I could just take a long walk in the woods, and then there were those days I lived in the woods... Nature all around... Nowadays it's work, work, work and learn, learn, learn!

Took a trip to Costa Rica this past winter and spent some very inspirational time in the RAINFOREST listening to birds and taking many photos. The RAINFOREST is stunningly beautiful, the sounds of all the living creatures singing are non stop and you just get into the rhythm of it all so easily. It was a very natural transition for me. I went mainly for dentistry, and was not dissapointed. I'll be writing more about this later on.

 

For Now ... Just want to say HAPPY SPRING to you and wish you health and happiness!

April was Jazz and Poetry Month

 

Here's a poem written for April is Jazz and Poetry month!

 

Ningxia Red in Nightclubs!

 

As I write this the new moon hangs low in the western night sky, that famous sliver of white, suspended in a cloudless New York skyline. The other evening, last Thursday in fact, I went to the Zinc Bar on 3rd st in NYC to the vocal jam they have there from 6:30 to 8pm. I had been busy all day, already had dinner and didn't really want wine, very rarely drink hard alcohol and didn't want tomato/ orange or grapefruit juice. I was wishing I could have a Ningxia Red on the rocks.....!

who will sell out next? (P)

 

who will sell out next?

 

i picked grapes today

green, sweet falling off the vine

the skins are thick

the seeds brown and bitter

 

they’ll make good juice

fragrant, potent and pungent

new moon coming

the night is still…

 

it’s quiet, calm

everyone seems tired

the mood

is low key

 

the northern mockingbird

who lives in the tree across the street

who sings life songs into the night

got shot by one of the crazy neighbors

 

this bird would sing every note like a sunrise

like a thunderstorm

like a million raindrops on a pond

like a rainbow

 

we don’t know who pulled the trigger

but one night

there was no more beauty sounds

coming from the street

 

the reservoir

looks like a mirror

so still

Jupiter is in reverse

 

children eating cotton candy

sugared up and acting out

wild with desire

no boundaries keeping them in

 

no boundaries to create resistance

to hold them up

so they understand

the meaning of limitations

 

there’s no balance here

perhaps people

can’t tell the difference

between good and evil anymore

 

between soft and hard

between danger and safety

perhaps the desire to win at any cost

has altered our ability to serve the ultimate good

 

to believe that life is good

worth the confusion

that living in harmony with nature

will serve the planet

 

that Nature

with her fire, her water, her air, her earth

will be able to withstand the onslaughts of humans

process all the the garbage

 

every day

brings a new set of rules…

building up/breaking down

questions/answers

 

plastic floating in the oceans

oil spills in the gulf

every day brings a new set of rules

who will sell out next?

i'll be the tiger's wife today (P)

 
 

i’ll be the tigers wife today

 

 

Durga, the goddess with 8 hands

is riding a tiger

 

she’s got a big crown full of jewels

a couple of swords

a bow and arrow

two scepters

a conch shell

a whirling universe

and a tablet scroll

in Her hand

 

i suppose that symbolizes

all the effort one must make

to cut through maya

to see things in perspective

to hold oneself in high esteem

to tame the desire tiger

to be armed

conscious

alert

aware of lifes inequities

to bear gifts gracefully

 

the tiger is carrying Her….

 

his mouth is open

his teeth are barred

he is walking

ready for what’s coming

meeting it head on

 

i’ll be the tiger’s wife today

pick a color (P)

 

pick a color

 

and I dreamed of you

in the blue haze

your voice lining my mouth

with silver

 

your hands holding the

table

to keep the frozen

words from getting too close

 

you were lamenting

about life

about grief

about grieving

 

about

not getting

what

you deserve

 

your wife was there

floating and singing

on the bandstand

in a tight kaleidoscopic dress

 

her butt was huge

like planet earth

it took up the whole room

in red, blue, orange and yellow

 

the band played ferociously

with intricate harmonies

horn parts that stayed in the air

cascading and ringing through the night

 

one day, i’ll be dead and gone

some human might read this

and wonder what it was like

to live thru these days

 

of lies and resolute right wingers

chipping away

every personal freedom

we have

 

the oil crisis

the terrorists

the gas prices that

keep going up

 

i had a pedicure today

all the women who work there

are chinese

they don’t speak english

 

it was very strange

all these caucasion women

sitting in chairs

while chinese women were bending over

 

doing manicures and pedicures

bending over, picking up feet

scrubbing, trimming,

shaving skin

 

pick a color

pick a color

i brought

my color

 

                   red, blood red

                   shiny dark pomegranate

                   amaryllis red

                   christmas red

 

 

they bend and scrape off

dead skin ….   while we

sit there, feet up

grateful for the moment

 

 

 

 

we endure the snipping

the filing

the thick polish

going on to slow

 

taking too long to dry

sitting on the massage chair

waiting for the metal fingers

to separate flesh from bone

 

muscle from pain

no relationship needed

just metal fingers

and an on/off button

Healing With Young Living Helichrysm Oil 2nd story

 

How I Found Out Helichrysm Oil Is Totally Amazing The 2nd Time

 

I putter around the house fixing things and breaking things. I use hammers, saws, drills and other tools to do things like fixing broken chairs, hanging curtains etc.

 

One night, after a flood in the basement, I was trying to put a drawer back in a cabinet of a chest, that because of the water, had swollen.   It was giving me particular trouble and I was getting short tempered so I decided to try and chisel out a piece of the swollen wood so it would fit back in the drawer. Alas, that was not such a brilliant idea…

 

While I was chiseling…. the wood gave way, the screwdriver slipped and a piece of wood about 6/8” long and 1/8” wide went deep into the back of my fingernail of my 3rd finger.  Well, it hurt like the dickens, started swelling, bleeding and turning colors. I found a pair of tweezers and pulled, what I thought was the whole thing, out. I couldn’t really tell because it was still bleeding, it really hurt and was very swollen.

 

I found my Helichrysm Oils and applied it, the bleeding stopped, but it still hurt quite a bit. By this time I had decided to take a break from the drawer activities and let the finger rest. It was late so I went to bed shortly thereafter.

 

When I woke up, the finger was red, throbbing, more swollen, started getting yellow with infection and kind of purple. I put more oil on it, it helped a little with the throbbing but not much else.  I waited…

 

The next day it was worse and throbbing more so I decided to get serious and see if I could find out what the problem was. Without sounding too gory, I cut the skin and saw a large piece of wood was still in my finger. My friend lent me her chemistry tweezers, I poked around and finally got the rest of the wood out.

 

By this time the finger was really throbbing, really swollen but as soon as I got the small piece out, it felt better. I applied the 4 or 5 drops of helichrysm every 15minutes for a couple of hours, washed everything really well and bandaged it.  The throbbing stopped, the bleeding stopped and it took about 3 days of putting the oil on it as often as I could until the swelling went down and about 2 weeks to get back to normal.

 

I don’t recommend doing this on your own without a doctors care, but I am one of those 50 million people who don’t want to go to the doctor, and a trip to the emergency room was out of the question. I am really glad I keep 2 bottles of Helichrysm Oil in my possession for situations like this, and I still do for these kinds of reasons.

 

Healing With Young Living Helichrysm Oil 3rd story...

 

The Third Time  I Realized How Amazing Helichrysm Oil Is

 

Having had my 1st and 2nd very successful encounters with the healing ability of Young Living helichrysm oil, I come to my 3rd and most recent experience. This past December 2010, during the Christmas rush of holiday festivities, I somehow irritated the eyelid of my left eye. All of a sudden, I felt a swelling and saw a big red bump the size of a pea on my eyelid. As a child I had experienced them, it was a “stye” or so I thought. I bathed it in saline solution, used hot compresses, tea bags and other natural remedies. I used homeopathic remedies for swellings and cists. It seemed to be getting worse.

 

My eye was closed shut in the morning, it looked ghastly and I had to wear sunglasses to gigs, I felt terrible. I was out of helichrysm oil. I went to the doctor, one of those emergency care shops. Paid my $90.00 for a prescription of anti biotic cream and $90.00 for the doctor visit. I followed the directions, kept up with the compresses….. I called Young Living and placed an order for 2 bottles of helichrysm oil.

 

It was not responding well, even with the antibiotic cream. I remembered Young Living has an oil called Trauma Life and I knew I had it, so I started applying that. Trauma Life has helichrysm in it among other oils. I applied it as often as I could throughout the day and noticed it getting better. This had been going on about 3 weeks, it was hovering around the same place with varying degrees of swelling. At times, as big as a large green pea (but of course it was red!) and other times a little smaller. I started panicking, called an eye specialist and was told what I had was a

Chalazion and I might need to have it surgically removed. That would cost $500.00.

This was getting bleak…. I decided to put Young Living Lemongrass on it. Lemongrass is known for it’s antibacterial/antifungal properties. Yikes, did that sting! Still, it did reduce the swelling. (I don’t recommend putting Lemongrass on your eyelid, I’m just relating what I did) 

 

By this time I was really panicking… I thought I was going to have to do the surgery. Finally the helichrysm arrived. I started applying it as often as I could during the day, directly on the eyelid. It didn’t sting and there was no discomfort. In 2 days the swelling started to go down, in 4 days the bump was ½ its previous size, in 6 days it was almost gone.

 

There is still a very tiny bump there and a slight redness, but it is not noticeable. The helichrysm is amazing!

 

Healing With Young Living Helichrysm Oil

 

How I Found Out Helichrysm Oil Is Totally Amazing The 1st Time

 

My roommate had moved and I was cleaning up some of the things she had left and I had washed a lot of dishes and glassware in the dishwasher. I was unloading the dishwasher and putting things away when I reached in to get a vase and missed the vase I had intended to get and instead, inadvertedly reached underneath the bottom of another vase. This vase was a long clear glass vase with a very sharp top rim. I felt a burning stinging sensation and pulled my hand out quickly. I then noticed the middle finger of my right hand was bleeding and I had a deep cut to the bone, with a flap of skin about ¼ inch by ¼  inch not attached! This is that part of the top of the hand where you don’t have a lot of skin!

 

I thought, “oh no…. I’m in trouble now” and proceeded to run cold water on it, apply pressure to try and stop the bleeding and get some ice. I did this for about 15 minutes and it wouldn’t stop bleeding. I sing and play piano and I had a gig that night…. This was not good…   I remembered George Koury and Rudy Hunter talking about how helichrysm oil could stop bleeding so I went to my oil bag, found the helichrysm and applied it.

 

Within about 3 to 4 minutes the bleeding started pooling, in about another 5 minutes it stopped altogether. Since it was a very deep cut, I thought I might need stitches, but since it stopped bleeding I decided to wait and see. I started alternating Young Living lavender oil and helichrysm oil and it started to stabilize. I had a friend wrap it very tightly and secure it on the edges, and kept applying the oils alternately to the bandage. The blood started to turn a dark brown almost black color, but it felt OK, wasn’t throbbing and  I had a gig to go to….

 

I went to the gig, it was only one hour long. Almost as soon as I started playing it started bleeding again so I applied the same two oils in between tunes and made it thru the hour.

 

Long story short, I kept applying the oils for about 4 days, the wound turned  black around the edges, never got infected, healed beautifully and I have a very small scar where it used to be. No stiches, no emergency room, no doctor visits!

                                                    

 Totally Amazing!

 

I think doctors are great, medicines are great and I’m all for getting good medical attention. But it certainly does help to have these oils to avoid emergency room visits! I’m not advocating making unintelligent choices, just informed ones…..

 

happy 2011!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greetings to You!

 

Here comes 2011! The year of the Metal Rabbit…

Wishing you Success in all your endeavors, Love, Laughter & Warm and Fuzzy in your Life and much Joy in your Heart!

Not to mention Courage, Fortitude, Vision and Stamina for whatever Life brings you…

 

I love getting your letters like this, so please let me know what’s going on in your life if your feelin it…. And I hope you’ll enjoy this update from me…

 

I’m trying to keep my main website (www.sarahjames.com) updated, but I’ve got a lot going on so it’s really on the fly with my postings. But, if there is anything really big going on, it will be there first. Still doing the singing, writing, dealing with real estate, massage and aromatherapy, photographing, earth and animal activistism, astrology and tarot etc….. Plus lately I got involved with DJ work, doing children’s entertainment and face & body painting which has really taken off. I have an agent who is keeping me very busy with all this.  Very different from the jazz and creative stuff, but it pay a lot more bills! And bills there are aplenty…

 

The very newest thing is that New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut and Pennsylvania have de-regulated their utility companies, which means that more upstarts are getting into the energy business, and I am involved with very green upstart company called VIRIDIAN.  If you live in any of these states, and soon in New York and Illinois, when you sign up with them, you save 10 to 15% on your electric bill because they contract with WIND ENERGY PROVIDERS FOR ELECTRICITY! WHOOPEE! It’s really amazing when you think of it, the first Earth Day was in 1970 and here it is 40 years later, and John Q Public finally has a choice of energy providers. This is what the United States needs to do in a very big way to cut down on all the problems with getting energy from you know who. Here’s the new website for this:

www.Viridian.com/SarahJamesGreenLiving  I hope you will take advantage of this and contact me if you live in any of these states, also give us chance to say hi! Massive amounts of carbon footprints can be eliminated by using wind energy… It’s all on the website, check it out!!

 

Also, this year I was able to get back in touch with many friends thru facebook! Ha! Don’t you love it? If you are there, find me… There are 26 other people at last count who go by the name Sarah James. I’m the one in the black hat with the Irish lap harp, so please friend me…

 

Also, this new year will see the release on my recording label Kilamanjaro Disques, the long awaited NANCY KING cd “PERENNIAL” Steve Christofferson, Dave Frishberg, Leroy Vinegar, Sergiu Luca, Ralph Towner and other Portland, Oregon legends. It is an amazing CD, with out of this world music… Probably have copies ready on CD BABY in about 3 to 4 weeks after Christmas, and then, tunes will be available on i tunes etc.  Nancy’s web address is:

www.NancyKingJazz.com    Well worth a visit for really great music!!

 

 

 

 

 

I am also working on a new site called:

www.SarahJamesGreenLiving.com which will feature the green electricity energy links, my Young Living green home cleaning products, the very best nutritional products, essential oils, my music, probably my photos, my cards and other things related  to creativity and green living. It’s not up yet as I am still working on it and it’s different from all my other sites because it will be a shopping cart, very fluid and comprehensive.  Please keep a lookout to my main site www.sarahjames.com

to find out more……

 

If it looks as if all I do is work, you are correct. What can I say? I always seem to bite off more than I can chew… it’s totally OK tho, I like being busy……..

 

It’s been quite a year for me, and it looks like it’s not gonna let up, so…..

Here’s wishing you and yours,

monkey mind (lyrics for new song poem)

 

monkey mind

 

 

monkey mind, monkey mind

makes you crazy, makes you blind

takes you on a trip so far

you don’t know just who you are

 

take you out to sea for free

keeps you in the wind you see,

that monkey mind will do you in

faster than a jet tail spin

 

childhood memories in your mind

stories singing down thru time

voices from the past still talking

as you do your daily walking

 

echoes from your walking dreams

ripple thru the trembling leaves

lightning cracks your open sky

it’s monkey mind, monkey mind

 

monkey mind, monkey mind

makes you crazy, makes you blind

takes you on a trip so far

you don’t know just who you are

 

 

every step your feet will take

leads you closer to your fate

monkey mind takes you off course

so keep your heart in truths full force

 

people tell you many lies

their behavior they deny

keep your eyes on your desire

never let your will expire

 

 

 

 

 

it’s monkey mind, monkey mind

makes you crazy, makes you blind

takes you on a trip so far

you don’t know just who you are

 

 

 

monkey mind, monkey mind

go thru life and you will find

what you thought was  true is not

what you thought was cold is hot

 

just one puzzle piece is missing

is it your true love that your kissing

all you travels, all your tears

make you tougher than your years

 

it’s monkey mind, monkey mind

dancing you thru time

it’s monkey mind, monkey mind

serving up some some jive

 

it’s monkey mind, monkey mind

dancing you thru time

it’s monkey mind, monkey mind

serving up some some jive

My Article on Abbey Lincoln's Tribute in NYC on 10/1/10 (plus a poem)

 

This is an article I wrote describing the beautiful tribute for Abbey Lincoln in NYC on 10/1/10. It's kind of long, so be prepared to spend a few minutes, or come back when you have more time. Also, there's a poem I wrote in the article, inspired by a kid who was having a tantrum!

I'm starting this blog 2 days before 2010 in hopes I can keep it up and write interesting content like new poems, essential oil recipes, thoughts on the all kinds of things, musical journeys, new videos on my musical journeys, rants, raves and general love notes to the world. People do pour out their hearts and souls on these things and I'd like to try have a topic or some sort of focus to keep things interesting... I'm starting a few new websites to kind of, fan the fires, so to speak. First, if you have a moment, go to You Tube and search for "VelvetMoonMedia". This is a new journey for me. I have been going to so many great singers and musicians gigs and hearing some beautiful sounds that I decided to document what is going on LIVE IN NY! Starting in the new year I hope to have more vids up so you can check out the music if you are in Poland, Japan, California or where ever on the globe. From now on, if there's a video to go along with a blog I'll let you know! So, Ciao for now... See you in the blogsphere!.......... xoxooxxxx Sarah
