Hello!  I hope you enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend!

Here are 3 music events that I thought might interest you. I’ll be playing at each…

  1. If you like good food and wine, with live music, come to Henke Winery in Westwood ( 3077 Harrison Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45211) on Friday, June 2. I’ll be performing music that complements conversation from 7-8:30, then kick it up a little from 8:30 – 10. Covers & originals. My hope is to do my part to provide an enjoyable evening for all attending. 
  2. Every month, on the 2nd Weds, I play instrumental guitar & Native American flute music at Reiki Share – a free Healing session intended for those directly affected by cancer.  The session is hosted by Sarah Dailey and the Blue Ash Cancer Support Center – 4918 Cooper Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45242, 7-9 pm.  Next session is June 7.

Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover Gray

Hello Ladies,

This blog is for you!  Time out from the troubles of the world – and time to dig into a steamy, erotic novel. My wife & I checked out the trailer for the new movie coming out soon when we ran across an article saying that women would rather read about sex than partake in it.  In that spirit, I’ve decided to cash in on the phenomenon and offer you a little tickler here on my blog…

Rated R – for Ridiculous…
Here’s Installment 1 of the Erotic Trilogy – Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover Gray

She was looking forward to the darkness of night to envelope her, wrap her in its arms, and give her thrills that so many woman yearn to experience.  With the three little ones tucked safely into bed after a day of bondage – hanging onto her from one room to another, wanting her, wanting all of her, she quietly slipped into her Red room, with posters of the Cincinnati baseball team sporting the striped walls. Her man glided in just after her from his normal position on the couch after watching the Bengals win another nail biter.

He was tired, that was clear, but hungry for her – almost as much as the kids. She slipped into something more comfortable as he unloaded in the next room with a few primal grunts & groans.  As soon as she found a comfortable position, her lover stomped into the bedroom and rolled onto her side of the bed – desire in his eyes and hands flopping everywhere.

Thirty long seconds later, they lay exhausted; he snored his way into dreams of the Superbowl while she picked up her favorite book, while pensively considering what lay ahead.

Happy Valentine’s Day to Humanity

Celebrating Valentine’s Day – A day to celebrate love…

I hold a vision, an intention for the human race – for our present & our future together. I see cooperation, kindness, compassion, and respect for one another as the norm, regardless of our differences of experiences, opinions & world views – more so, a fascination with wanting to understand what those differences can offer as benefits to us all. I see a greater concern for the whole – in alignment with concern for my own life – however I define the scope of what is mine – my nation of origin, my color, my race, my creed, my generation, or my world view/politics. I see the expansion of human potential & consciousness – from the turmoil of adolescence to an era of more calm & confident young adulthood.

I see a world in which the richness of each religion, including atheism, contributes to the whole of our experience, just as the varying personalities of race and culture provide us with expanded potential for joy. I see peoples of religions respecting each other, recognizing that we all share the same SOURCE/GOD/LOVE, like siblings in a family having the same parents – learning to understand the goodness of each, in both our diversity & commonalities. I see an ever growing understanding of religious texts and histories, guided by love of GOD, self, and all others, that enlivens & inspires us to ever greater expansion of our individual & collective expressions of that the love that we are, with no diminishment to the value of those texts and histories.

I see the innate goodness of each person, each a being of love – expressing love in a multitude of manners and levels of maturity & clarity. If, in my interactions with others, I do not express this in my thoughts, words, or deeds, it is because my vision is fogged with feelings of fear, guilt, or un-worthiness – less mature expressions of the love that I am. I promise & intend to focus more on the truth of love – that we are all equal children of the same SOURCE/GOD/LOVE, whatever name & personality we might apply to that WHICH/WHO creates & sustains us.

I believe we were given this beautiful world as garden in which to live together in love – with our SOURCE/GOD/LOVE believing in our goodness, believing in our ability to continually grow in our expressions of love  – individually & collectively, allowing us – with free will, to co-create an ever expanding joyous life of love together.

I believe I am not alone in this vision. I believe that many hold this vision in their hearts – and that any expression of this vision, in word, in art, in music, in relationships, business, or political action, reminds us with a confident, peaceful voice within, “Yes, that is who I am, that is who we are, that is who I am becoming, that is who we are becoming.”

Acknowledging the love that you are,
Dan Erdman

Dan performs – Homearama – #4 Homes by Gerbus

Dear Audience-Community,

First, I want to mention that I had a thoroughly wonderful time performing last evening at Liberty Center for the celebration of International Yoga Day, hosted by Pooja Malhotra.  Lilias Folan spoke & taught for about an hour.  All of it was uplifting, including Sunset Yoga led by Pooja in the Unity Chapel.  Beautiful !

Tonight & Friday evening, I head back to Homearama to play instrumental guitar & Native American flute on the front porch of the beautiful house built by my neighbor, Alan Gerbus & his brothers – Walt & Kevin.

Next on my calendar (so far) in July – playing at College Hill Farmer’s Market on Thursday, July 7, 5 – 6:30 pm.

Wishing you the very best of life!
Dan
