Written by Laurence Holder, Directed by Rome Neal and Laurence Holder, Musical Score by Bill Lee.SYNOPSIS: Monk is a dramatic monologue by acclaimed African American playwright Laurence Holder that captures Monk’s bravura, genius, humor, and humanity. Holder’s script evokes Monk’s unorthodox jazz piano styling. The narrative chronicles the composer’s early life, his rise to prominence as a self-taught pianist and composer, his participation in the Civil Rights Movement, and his bouts of mental illness. Monk shares with "Duke" Ellington the distinction of being considered one of the 20th Century's greatest American composers. His vision was both ahead of its time and deeply rooted in African American musical traditions, ranging from the sacred music of the black church to the "stride" piano style of James P. Johnson, to the tonal freedom of the "avant garde." Monk helped usher in the bebop revolution, yet he also charted a new course for modern music.

So Now What?
Everyday we are engulfed with issues, challenges and problems. And each circumstance we find ourselves in gives us a choice.
We can choose to be angry, petty, and annoyed by what comes our way or we can choose to move through the events of our day with grace, love and compassion – both for ourselves and those around us.
If your daily practice, training and rehearsal includes rage and impatience then you will need to find a way to break that habit.
You’ll need to start practicing and training with the beauty that is your very soul.

My name is Gill Fell and I am 53, I have 2 kids a house near Liverpool and a husband. I was in the Royal Navy as a physical Training instructor. But I didnt stop - until in February 2005 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I had surgery and treatment and went back to work - in fact I didn't stop working. The medicine I took gave me other problems which led to a Hysterectomy in 2010 where they nicked my Ureter and now I have scarring on my kidney. After that the follow up scan to check it had not returned showed that there were tumours in my Liver. I was told by an Oncologist that this time this time I was incurable, it was one of 4 types of cancer and I would have a cancer nurse and Macmillan would be informed and I would have biopsies to find out what it was so that a bit of chemo may keep it at by... anyway.... 4 months later another oncologist has given me a 90% certainty that the tumours were benign...... Phew.....
I tried and tested loads of meditations, mantras, EFT, NLP, The Law of Attraction, The Secret, Ester Hicks became my best friend, I learnt about religions and met an inspirational Buddhist monk,
I am a work in progress, I will never stop learning and its my full on mission in life to be happy and help people achieve things they never thought were possible
Ive studied diet and have views on what a healthy way to eat is, Ive become a yoga fan and meditate everyday, but not in a conventional way. I love life and have my ups and downs - but I keep the downs to a real minimum.
I try fun things and to start a meet up group is my way of starting my mission to inspire. That will radiate out through the people who attend...
If you are not acquainted with the genius and the greatness of Mary Lou Williams, please let us introduce you to one of the most amazing figures in Jazz history. Pianist, Arranger and Composer, Mary Lou was beloved by MANY - including Duke Ellington. He couldn't say enough about her style and the person behind it. Ms. Williams wrote hundreds of compositions, arranged for the prestigious male bandleaders of her day (remember those times - a WOMAN arranging? A WOMAN having that kind of influence?!) and was both friend and mentor to Monk, Miles, Parker and Gillespie.
Known as "The Little Piano Girl of East Liberty" (Pittsburgh), Mary Lou was self-taught and performed in public for the first time at age six. Her confidence never wavered through the years and she came to the attention of those who appreciated her strong skills and positive personality. One that landed on WNEW in New York City - as a broadcaster with a popular show.
So MUCH to say about Mary Lou - and no one can say it better than CAROL BASH. She is the director and producer of "Mary Lou Williams: The Lady Who Swings The Band." This noble endeavor is an IndieGoGo project that is looking to fulfill its mission by October 28th! There are important movers and shakers involved in this film who LOVE Jazz and LOVE the subject of this labor of love. You'd recognize the names - and we'll drop them when Carol visits on 10/21 at one p.m. Eastern time.
You'll hear about the musican and spiritual evolution of Mary Lou - she converted to Roman Catholicism later in life - and it colored her world in a way that surprised even herself. Maybe inspired by that journey, she said: "Jazz is love - you have to lay into it and let it flow." Join us in The Chat Room on 10/21!

Narrative mediation is a culturally focused practice that is based upon the notion that our lives are shaped by the stories that people tell about us and by the stories that we tell ourselves. The goal of the narrative mediator is to co-author stories that highlight strengths and competencies, rather than conflict. It helps people separate themselves from conflict-saturated stories and gives them the opportunity to re-author relationships in more peaceful, cooperative, and respectful ways. From this alternative position, the resolution of conflict can often happen much more smoothly and effectively than in traditional problem-solving approaches.
Dr. Gerald Monk is a Professor in the Department of Counseling and School Psychology at San Diego State University and has a primary role in training Marriage and Family Therapists.
