Lovely harmonies at Saint Vrain State Park!

I had such a lovely evening out at our local State Park last week.  The skies were filled hazy from smoke  blown in from the western states. The sun was a rosy pink. 

Sitting together around the campfire, I met Lynda Stern and her two year old grand daughter.  During our conversation, I found out that she plays guitar and her grand daughter and her sing together as often as possible.  The guitar went into her hands and as we sang harmonies together, the songs ranged from The "Itsy Bitsy Spider" to "How Much is that Doggie in the Window."  It was a magical evening for me.  There is just nothing better than singing harmonies with someone you've just met.  We both knew the 'language' of music and shared some smiles as we listened to each other's dialects and vocabulary.

So thankful there are people in the world like Lynda.  She is sharing a love of music with the next generation.   Keep it up!

Hope to see you around the campfire again sometime,
Heather

Heather Stenner has a passion for life! Her passions play out with music and children of all ages. Heather grew up in the Midwest and realized the importance of each day from a very young age. Her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor when Heather was only 5. The doctors gave her mother 6 months to live. It was during the next 15 years that Heather developed her charismatic and joyful course for her own life! Her mother showed her strength and courage and an intense compassion for others and their suffering. Her mother passed away when Heather was 20 years old. Heather vowed she would continue to live each day as if it were her last. To treat people with compassion and believe in the love we all share for one another. At the age of 37, she became an orphan. Her father passed away from pancreatic cancer. Through it all, Heather realized that MUSIC was one of her coping mechanisms to deal with all the stress that cancer brought into their families lives. She vowed to share her love of music with children, so that it might also be a positive force in their lives! To this day, Heather creates music that has soul and passion. She hopes everyone will remember with the dawning of each day; we are all musical. Feel it in your soul. Keep it to yourself... or give it away.
