The 36th, nice sweat, pay-offs and some shows 8

Posted on September 17, 2007 by jimparedes

Am back in Manila to do some concerts, and while I’m here, I thought I’d do some other things that I really enjoy. I know this is a bit of a rush if I get the numbers I will push through with this. I am talking about the creativity workshop I’ve been doing for years now. I last ran it in Melbourne at the onset of my dengue episode last August 24. I’m ready, willing and physically able to do it now.

The 36th run of TAPPING THE CREATIVE UNIVERSE Workshop is on

WHEN: OCTOBER 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 , 8
TIME: 7 to 9PM

For reservations, do call 4265375, or write to emailjimp@gmail.com for inquiries and a syllabus.
For those who inquired before and who have been waiting for the right moment, DON”T MISS IT THIS TIME!

I love the heat in Manila. Literally, this was my first day in more than a month where I have not put on a sweater! It was cold in Sydney when I was there, and it just did not feel comfortable to my recuperating body. This nice sweat is so familiar and nourishing! I realize now that I am more of a ‘heat’ than a ‘cold’ person. Winters don’t really thrill me. It may charm for a few days and then it can get annoying!

My guitar and voice teaching in Sydney is beginning to pay off. My students are really improving. Lately, I helped some of my voice students have their own medley minus-ones for performance by calling on my Manila musician contacts to arrange them. We are happy at how good the medleys have turned out. The students are happy that they have minus ones ‘tailor-made’ for them. One of these days, I am thinking of having a small recital for them if I can all get them to agree.

Tomorrow I will be seeing Danny, Boboy and our musicians for a rehearsal. We will be doing a show in Cebu this Friday at the CICC. All this rest and recuperation I am doing is to get ready for this. I am excited about it and I am psyched up to do a GREAT show. After this, we will be doing a few other shows in Lucena and other places.


If you are Manila based, make sure you catch our Music Museum shows on October 12 and 13. If you are one of those who have not seen us perform,don’t wait. Life is short, and fleeting. Enjoy yourself with us.
