A new original Rissi Palmer song included in The Durham Nutcracker!!! 

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the amazing talent at Walltown Children's Theatre for three years now. Each Christmas, they put on "The Durham Nutcracker" (Tchaikovsky with a Durham twist) and I'm super excited because this year, Cynthia let me write a NEW song and scene for the play!!! I hope that you will check out these beautiful and talented children as they act, dance, and sing their hearts out. Tickets are on sale now and there are discounts for group tickets, you can purchase them HERE.

Introducing WeAreSeeds.net 

 

 

Over the last year, I've been racking my brain, trying to figure out what I could do to add to the discourse that is happening in this country right now and do it in a positive way. A dear friend suggested I combine my love of children and current events and she sparked something in me. I thought, If we as adults can't wrap our minds around what's happening, imagine how confusing it must be for children? The result is this blog, WeAreSeeds.net, focused on "raising happy, healthy, socially conscious, intellectual, and spiritually strong children in the 'Post-Truth' Resistance Era". The name was inspired by my upcoming album, Seeds, and a proverb that states: “They tried to cut us down, they didn’t know we were seeds.”  I will feature articles, videos, quotes, and cartoons aimed at how to equip our children for the very adult social issues they face these days. I hope that you'll visit, find things that are helpful, and even contribute to the content on the page. May many conversations be started and hearts and minds changed because of content of this blog...

 

I pray love, peace, and understanding for us all,
