So, during my labor day weekend, I traveled to McCrae, GA to participate in the Songwriter's Soul Kitchen retreat.
Led by international jazz soul singer Vinx, the retreat is intended to guide songwriters through activities that encourage creating song magic. It was a pleasure meeting author and former talk show host Bertice Berry during the retreat. She is working on projects to help folks heal and grow spiritually. Other participants included the singer Heston and other performers who have varied degrees of songwriting experience. In down times, I was able to write privately, working on pieces for my upcoming CD and the upcoming season of the Saartjie Project.
