Happy Spring from Guatemala, known as "the land of eternal spring,"
where we are awaiting the rainy season!
I wanted to let you know that I 'm releasing my fifth single, "Buzzing Bees (A Song for Earthlings) available Apr. 8th! It's a song about identities and potential and seeing ourselves as part of a greater whole. And in fact, we are dependent on bees, the great pollinator among earthlings.
In nearby San Juan la Laguna, there is a bee tour at Mundo Abejas Maya, complete with a giant sculpture of a bee hive and bees as well as working bee hives, set in a garden complete with towering sunflowers. There I saw the familiar honey bees of my childhood, dutifully delivering delicious local honeys. But I also, for the first time, Ilearned of the indigenous Maya honey bees. Though I have been here for ten years, I did not know that those barely visible, non-stinging insects buzzing my flowers were bees! Their hives produce only 1/2 liter of honey a year which is highly prized for its medicinal value. Clearly, we earthlings come in all sizes.
