Roque’s Weekly Review on 8/22/18

Creativity / Culture and Society / Roque's Weekly Review

Hello Beautiful Everyone!

I’ve had a glorious week! Let’s get to the news .  .  .

  1. Roque’s 2nd Annual Piano Salon on August 19, 2018

Last Sunday, I hosted my 2nd Annual Piano Salon at my home in the woods of Liberty, TN. Nashville guitarist Andrew Weitze played electric guitar as I played my songs, and he was on fire!!! I love it when we play together!  Pianist Oliver Flowers played some lovely piano music, and in the absence of a couple of other performers, local musician Leopard played a song for us as well.

Here are some photos from the show:

Special thanks to Oliver Flowers who tuned all three of my pianos that same day and performed four musical pieces. He was AWESOME!

MaxZine did a terrific job preparing food for the show and making colorful floral arrangements from his flowers in our garden.

All in all, Roque’s 2nd Annual Piano Salon was a dainty and whimsical success! Thank you to everyone who attended!  We will see you when I host this again next year.

2. Pianissimo

My email newsletter Pianissimo arrives this coming week, and it is full of new information about my life and the creative projects to come. I’ve included some art and poetry as well as new photography. Keep a lookout in your mailbox.

Culture and Society

This week, I just wanted to highlight some of my recent posts here at Bloom.

There has been a lot of news lately about the misuse of personal information from 87 million Facebook users by a company called Cambridge Analytica. If we stand idly by and allow these infractions to happen, then we become complicit. Here are my thoughts on the matter, and what I am doing about it.

Fight the Power of Social Media

Speaking of news, we are under the auspices of a US President whose behavior and leadership style have been unprecedented. Despite who our leader is, we do not have to follow his example .  .  .

How To Live In the Era of President Trump

Lastly, I have lived long enough in this life to have learned a few important things. Those who learn, learn best by teaching. Here are some of my lessons I want to share .  .  .

My Daily Rituals for a Meaningful Life

I would love to know your thoughts on these topics.

Have a wonderful week.
