“Whether we name divine presence, synchronicity, serendipity, or grace moments matters little. What matters is the reality that our hearts have been understood. Nothing is as real as healthy dose of magic which restores our spirits.” (Nancy Long)

2010 has been a special year for me. It wasn’t just that the San Francisco Giants won a World Series title this year that made me proud to be a Giants fan, it was how they won it. Like many other bay area natives I had hoped for this moment since 1962.(Cub fans take heart!!!!) The process of watching a season of transformation with a team searching for identity and suddenly finding itself totally, was an awe inspiring sports moment no matter which team you root for.

For me it is a tremendous accomplishment and honor to receive a Grammy nomination. When your peers take notice of you, you have done something special. Yesterday we received the news that ¬°Bien Bien! was chosen as one of the “Best Cds of 2010″ by Downbeat magazine.

To be recognized by Downbeat magazine in the same year as a Grammy nomination is akin to winning two legs of the Triple Crown in baseball!!! (Wonder what the equivalent of the third leg would be?)
Very cool stuff. I don’t know who or what is driving this moment but it sure is a nice ride!

BTW Went and saw Los Van Van at the San Francisco Yoshi’s last night. Great to see the cats and catch up. Going again this evening to listen, sit in a song or two, talk shop and bring down some trombones for the cats to check out.

Hasta later, Wayne
