"So much love for our new CD The Full Catastrophe has poured in, and we are loving it. We spent last weekend playing a sold out show in the gorgeous Barns of Wolf Trap in Virginia. We DO love it there and we thank all of you who came out and spent that time with us. Next weekend holds events equally as exciting. You should NOT miss them!!! As our CD is all about our experiences in the chaotic life that is marriage, motherhood and the mayhem of making music, (like all that alliteration?) what better weekend than the weekend of Mother's Day to plan a boatload of celebrations."
"FRIDAY, May 11 from 5-8 on the 2nd floor of Thornes Marketplace in Northampton, MA we will be hosting along with MotherWoman and Impish an Arts Night Out event filled with many different kinds of art all based around the theme of motherhood. Come eat delicious food provided for FREE by Paul & Elizabeth's, look at gorgeous pictures, paintings, and visual expressions of motherhood, listen to women read poetry and prose about their understanding of mothering and hear Nerissa and Katryna-- that's US, The Nields--sing songs about motherhood.. Come celebrate the fabulous community of mothers, artists, writers, poets who make this Valley the wonderful place it is. See you then!"

"Meet, Greet, Eat and Discover!" - Holistic Health Alliance of the Pioneer Valley hosts second potluck
In the Frances Crowe Community Room downstairs (behind the Woodstar Cafe) Use the side entrance or walk through the cafe.
Come and Join us for the 2nd meeting of the Holistic Health Alliance of the Pioneer Valley. Our first meeting was really fun and there was a real buzz of positive energy in the room. We're all excited about continuing to build our group and meet and interact with so many great colleagues! We plan on being a useful resource (educationally, socially, business building, advocacy) for everyone involved in providing holistic health services to the public. This meeting is designed to allow us to socialize and get to know each other, share some food and learn some about other holistic practices. We will have a speaker (for about 20 minutes) to share some information with us about their therapeutic practice modality. (Speaker and Topic will be announced soon!)
Please let anyone you know who is a holistic health practitioner in the Pioneer Valley that this meeting is happening. This group is open everyone who provides professional therapeutic services that treat the body, mind, and spirit.
You can come to just find out more about what we are all about. This IS A POTLUCK! So please bring something to share (food or drink). Please label the ingredients on whatever you bring so people with food allergies or dietary preferences will be comfortable. There are no kitchen facilities available so food will not be able to be re-heated. Here is a list of things you might bring that would be helpful:
Drinks, appetizers, salad, main courses, bread, desserts
Please mention in your RSVP to this event what you will be bringing. (try to check what others have already said they are bringing so we can have a good distribution). Last time we had a great selection of delicious items. We look forward to seeing you!
PS: We will ask for a donation of $1 or $2 each to support rental of a bigger hall for future meetings.
