'lovelight music' is a group formed to explore books about healing with music.
the current discussion is "Music and Healing -- Is it possible with popular music?"
Diva JC kicked off the discussion with some very interesting insights and suggestions about healing with popular song based on her 33 years of world-wide performance, singing jazz and blues.
please feel free to join the 'lovelight music' group and discuss music therapy – especially as it might apply to the genre of popular music. or just join 'lovelight music' group and tune in from time to time to add a book to the group shelf or to find out what other musicians are discussing. any comment you care to offer will be greatly appreciated.
drop me a note if you have any questions.
may peace and harmony reign in your life.

"Who Dies?" and "Unattended Sorrow", by Steven Levine are two books I recommend. Also "Tuesdays with Morrie", by Mitch Albom, on subject of Death and Dying. My favorite book about spiritual practice at the moment is "The Places that Scare You", by Pema Chodron. An all-time favorite is "Care of the Soul" by Thomas Moore. I performed last night at my Church's summer camp Talent Show. It was a blast. My friend Amanda and I played and sang Dar Williams' "The One Who Knows" and I also backed up on guitar another congregant who sang "The Stray Cat Strut". It was a great time!
Hey! Hope you are fine & enjoying your summer. When I saw the cover of National Geographic yesterday, I thought of you. The cover is a Mayan temple, all lit up & very splendid. Pick it up if you have some time. The story is very interesting. Happy reading!
Right now I can't read much because I have a very difficult exam coming up, I'm only reading textbooks, but once I have free time again I will recommend you other books. Last month I bought books by Elena Garro, Carlos Fuentes, Jorge Luis Borges and José Saramago.
Don't you worry dear! I totally understand, I'm very busy too and probably in August I won't be around much also.
I hope you like the book. Juan Rulfo uses words that are typical to the state of Jalisco and Mexican rural people (that are still used today) so if you have any doubts feel free to ask because I think some of them you won't find a typical dictionary.
Don’t you worry, it has been busy for me too, lots to study!
I have read interesting reviews about the “The Kite Runner” and “A thousand splendid suns”. Which one did you like best? What is ATSS about?
I’m about to start Rulfo’s other book, “Pedro Páramo”.
I hope you like “El llano en llamas”!
Sorry for my late reply, but I’m in the middle of exams period.
About the murders of Ciudad Juárez… Umm… no, I don’t know about any good books. An uncle gave one about it last Christmas, but I didn’t like it. If I hear about a good one I will tell you about it.
Yeap, very sad. Controlling the violence along the border will be very difficult, but the new government is trying really hard.
I saw the movie “Man of Fire”, and I thought it was ok. I didn’t like some stuff, like Ciudad Juárez at the beginning of the movie (hey, it’s not like that! I have been to that city lots of times!), but in general I liked it. Denzel blows up lots of things in México City, and… I found it cool… *ashamed*, hahaha.
One movie that I really like, because I believe it’s very accurate and representative of the different layers of life in México City is “Amores Perros” by Alejandro González Iñárritu. It’s very gritty and raw, but I think it is a fabulous movie.
