           TretTret  Fure     Grethe Grethe Cammermeyer
Many of you have asked me to relay my experiences at the Guitar and Song Writing Boot Camp held at Whidbey Island last month and I'm finding it challenging to write succinctly about the event simply because there was so much involved wrapped around my introversion to new environments. I challenged myself to move far beyond my comfort zone in order to expose myself to the brilliance of Tret Fure and the presence of Grethe Cammermeyer. 
The workshop was held at the home of Colonel Grethe Cammermeyer and her partner, Diane Divelbess.  For those of you who are not familiar with Colonel Cammermeyer, she wrote a book and had a movie made of her experiences in challenging the U.S. Army's policy of gays in the military called "Serving in Silence" starring Glenn Close.  I've admired Colonel Cammermeyer for her courage and brilliance for years and meeting her was as inspirational as I'd imagined it would be. Her dedication to living a life of truth and honor carry over to every aspect of what she does and who she is and her selfless spirit gave me pause to reflect on how I am helping to make this world a better place. To learn more about Grethe Cammermeyer, go to

Tret Fure has been working in the music business since her teenage years and is an accomplished song writer (14 albums of original music), brilliant guitar player (one student described her playing as having an orchestra in her guitar), a sound engineer and teacher among her many, many talents. (  Tret has a way of treating each student with kindness, respect and encouragement that propelled us to safely dig into the inner reaches of our creativity in order to open and release the music and poetry which yearned to be heard. (I told you it was challenging for me to be succinct!) I could go on and on about Tret but I encourage you instead to listen to her music and discover her for yourself.
As for the entirety of the experience, I found that I was not attending simply to learn about song writing or guitar playing. Just as when I attended healing schools and found that I did not go simply to learn about healing, this event was to learn about myself, how I relate to others, how I learn from others, observing the inner and outer process, shifting perspectives and gently allowing myself to be okay with who I was in the midst of all that brilliance. Did I want to hide? You bet, and sometimes I did! Did I judge myself? Of course, I'm human.  Was I awkward, nervous and shy? I'm an introvert - that's my nature!  But I needed to be there, I needed to find my creative process again, my voice, my own unique style. I wanted to be inspired by greatness -  and I was. Now it's up to me to have the courage to evoke the muse/music that I've hidden for so long.
I encourage each of you to find a course of interest that takes you beyond what you believe you can achieve and then find your teacher.  You never know what you're going to find or where you're going to go or what you're going to accomplish simply because you took the risk to go outside of your own expectations. Please don't wait - the world needs you now!

Oh, and just so you know that I am committed to my mission of the muse, I've already signed up to go to Boot Camp again next year!

I've Been Shopping!
On Saturday I went to visit my friend, Qaisar's, warehouse to see what goodies I could find and, lo and behold, he had found a few more pieces of the huge Black Tourmalines that I had this spring.  I have two pieces that are over 30 pounds and several smaller pieces so, if you didn't get a piece before, now is your chance.

I also was gifted with 14 pounds of Kunzite at a phenomenal price - if you've been looking for a substantial piece for your collection, you must have a look at this!  These are 1990 prices which may never be seen again! Don't miss this deal!

I also came back with hundreds of small polished quartz crystals, small lingams, lovely small Celestite clusters, a 4 pound natural smoky self healed point, 4 different sizes of salt lamps (starting at $15.00) and much more.

Stop in and see us for some fantastic bargains and stunning specimens!
