"But whatever your passion might be, happiness research predicts that making time for a passion and treating it as a real priority instead of an "extra" to be fitted in at a free moment (which many people practically never have) will bring a tremendous happiness boost." "...What you enjoyed doing as a ten-year-old, or choose to do on a free Saturday afternoon, is a strong indication of your passion."
I remember when I was ten, I drew all the time. I sang all the time too! I loved putting the poems in the back of my third grade reader to music just for fun. When I was sixteen I asked my folks for a guitar and have been playing ever since!
One time someone I didn't know well and haven't seen since, told me that I should choose music or art to pursue and not both! He was well meaning, but I let it bother me for a while. I just love art and music both! Many people do! And I plan to continue with both my arts and music as long as I can! So there!!
One of my passions for the last fifteen years has been playing music with my awesome folk-blues group Salt River!
So happy to announce that we are performing at the end of the week!
On Saturday, September 28th at 8 pm, Salt River will be performing at the new Red & Shorty's Coffeehouse, in Dover N.H, 4 Paul Street (2nd left off Henry Law Ave.)
This venue is a house concert at the home of Joe and Lorna Simes. The former owners of Elysium Folk Club have opened their home to a new music series and we are excited to be a part of this.
Seating is limited to about 30, so we suggest making reservations, by emailing them at:
firstname.lastname@example.org They also have a Facebook page. Our next performance will be at First Night in Portsmouth, NH.
